Aamir Khan is not only a superstar in India, but also in China, where his films Secret Superstar and Dangal have performed spectacularly well.
His professional trajectory has been consistent. Despite the fact that his films like Andaz Apna Apna and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar did not meet his expectations at the time, they went on to become cult classics. The films Dil Chahta Hai and Lagaan nearly altered how young people viewed Indian cinema. Aamir has received a Padma Shri and a Padma Bhushan for his outstanding contributions to the film industry.
Aamir is a four-time National Award-winning actor in addition to this. It is virtually impossible to fathom that the actor would have experienced a few downturns, however, believe it or not, Aamir has also gone through some difficulties.
Aamir Khan’s few forgettable roles are listed below:
1.Akele Hum Akele Tum
The 1995 Indian musical drama romance film Akele Hum Akele Tum starred Aamir Khan and Manisha Koirala. Aamir played the role of an ambitious playback singer in the Mansoor Khan-directed film. The film follows the journey towards reconciliation of two people who part ways in order to pursue their dreams. Aamir performed an excellent job portraying a troubled playback singer, but the film didn’t receive the credit it deserved.
2. 1947: Earth
1947.Earth, Deepa Mehta directed the 1Indian period drama in 1999. Aamir Khan’s portrayal of the ice-candy man in the movie Earth is regarded as one of his best performances. The shades of his character, which he played in a negative light, astounded everyone. Even now, more than 15 years later, it is difficult to picture another actor portraying the role and giving it the nuances that Aamir did. Earth was not one of the top five AMPAS candidates, despite being India’s official entry for the 1999 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. To everyone’s dismay, however, not much is spoken about the movie.
Mann, an Indra Kumar-directed love drama released in 1999, is Aamir’s second collaboration with Manisha Koirala. The movie was a mediocre box office performance, but Aamir’s portrayal of a former casanova who became an aspiring painter is underestimated. Despite having a lot of emotional depth, the film failed to attract the audience it aimed for.
Aamir Khan, Prateik Babbar, and other actors star in Kiran Rao’s 2011 film Dhobi Ghat. Although the film was well-received by critics, it did poorly at the box office. It was also on the long list for the Best Film Not in the English Language category of the 65th BAFTA Awards.
But when it comes to Aamir’s standout performances, his understated portrayal of a solitary artist went overlooked.
Talaash is a psychological horror movie that was co-written and directed by Reema Kagti. In the movie, in which Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor Khan also starred, Aamir played Inspector Surjan Singh Shekhawat. The movie, however, failed to meet expectations at the box office. Despite having an ensemble cast, the film underperformed and ended up on the list of overlooked films.
