Apart from King Khan’s to-die-for swag and attitude, his stunts also garnered an equal amount of appreciation. Especially, the one where he had to jump off a 300-feet building.
Aamir Khan in Ghulam
Quite a daring act for an actor like Aamir Khan; Ghulam saw Khan indulging in a daredevil stunt on the railway track without using any body double. It involved the actor running towards a train and jumping off the track just when the train is inches away from him. Well, this is why Aamir Khan is rightfully called the perfectionist.
