Bollywood is celebrating the 51st birthday of Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan. Mr. Khan, who may not have had a perfect year in 2015, has made us believe in the word perfect, now for years. Over the years, Mr. Khan has proved that the Mr. Perfectionist tag is no exaggeration for him.
Be it the role of teacher in Taare Jameen Par, or the extraordinary student in 3 Idiots, or a rebellion youth in Rang De Basanti, or thief in Dhoom 3 – Aamir Khan gets full marks for every role in every genre.
It isn’t that the others in Bollywood haven’t explored their different genres, but discomfort can be evident. But Aamir remains the only actor to pass every role with ease.
He is the only actor in Bollywood to master the art of method acting. The first portrayal of Rang De Basanti star’s method acting was observed in Lagan where he played the role of farmer who locks horns with British government in cricketing battlefield. It was said that Aamir didn’t take a single touch up for the role and his dark complexion was result of hard sweat work on field.
Let’s tell you something about method acting. It general terms it refers to a range of techniques for training actors to achieve better characterizations of the characters they play. An actor generally adopts the character’s traits in his day to day life to get better acting results when he is on camera.
However, Aamir in 2012 denied that he is by choice a method actor but the greatness of his acts compels us to believe that the actor is the only method actor industry have ever produced.
Needless to say, the popularity of Aamir Khan, who is one of the three popular Khan in Bollywood, can be a subject of comparison with Salman and Shah Rukh, but certainly he stands out when it comes to the choice of content and impact of the roles.
Apart from his personal life Aamir also stands as a perfect husband, a father, and a brother too. His love towards his family is world known. The adorable relationship with wife Kiran Rao and his dedication towards kids corroborate his perfection in his personal life as well.
Well, a lot can be written about this man who took his first breath 51 years ago. But for now we wish a VERY HAPPY 51st birthday.
