Aamir Khan is a perfectionist. He works on one film in one year and dedicates himself to it completely. He always becomes the character. He changes his look, his body, his mannerisms, everything. He has worked on some great films like Andaz Apna Apna, Dil Chahta Hai, Rang De Basanti, 3 Idiots, Lagaan, the list goes on. It is true, what Aamir touches tends to become an interesting project. Even though we all know the man aces every shot and every frame, somehow he manages to get caught up in a lot of controversies. Here are some unfortunate controversies Aamir was involved in, in years gone by.
The child controversy
Aamir Khan was said to be involved with the British journo Jessica Hines. They got close during the shooting of Ghulam, and Hines got pregnant with his son, Jaan. The mother and son live in London.
Faisal Khan controversy
Aamir’s brother Faisal had claimed that he was kept captive in his house by Aamir. The matter became ugly and was dragged to court. The court gave Faisal’s custody to his father.
Aamir’s pledge to support rehabilitation of the families that were displaced by the construction of the Sardar Sarovar Dam on Narmada river created quite the ruckus. The star was criticized by national and international media.
Shah Rukh Khan-Aamir Khan war
Aamir’s comment that his dog is named Shah Rukh added to the on-going rivalry between SRK and Aamir.
Aamir Khan faced a lot of flak on social media and from many people after he called the roast ‘a violent event’. He was called a hypocrite and people reminded him of the Delhi Belly song, DK Bose.
Debate on Intolerance
Aamir’s comment that Kiran Rao feels unsafe in the country and wants him to leave the country became a massive controversy, recently.
We wish him a controversy-free year ahead! Happy Birthday 🙂
