Bollywood superstar or as they call him the Perfectionist, Aamir Khan turned 54 years old on March 14. The actor has earned this extremely special tag after having a career span of nearly three long decades. Undoubtedly, Aamir Khan has raised the bar of the Indian Cinema by giving us some of the most remarkable films. His filmography includes classics like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Dil, Andaz Apna Apna, Sarfarosh, Rang De Basanti, 3 Idiots, Dangal… the list is never-ending. Well, we are quite familiar to his acting prowess, but do you know Aamir Khan is one heck of a sensitive person?
The 54-year-old superstar has this tendency to shed tears even off-screen and that too on a frequent basis. We have also noticed that it takes ‘any’ film that Aamir watches, to make him sob to an extent that a normal person like us can nearly choke to death. Lol! Just Kidding! Be it Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan, nephew Imran Khan’s Katti Batti or on the press conference of his own, Satyameva Jayate… Aamir Khan has made it a point to shed his precious tears.
Well, we are all praise for the sensitive men who are not afraid to cry in public and express their feelings. However, when it comes to Aamir Khan, he has taken the art of crying to a different level altogether. On his 54th birthday, here’s a rundown to some of the many moments when Aamir Khan cried his heart out. A special mention to Aamir’s hand-cloth that has gone through so much but never complained.
#1 Bajrangi Bhaijaan screening
We won’t shy to admit that we all loved this Salman Khan starrer and had gotten a little emotional at the climax. Aamir Khan, however, got so emotional that he couldn’t stop crying as he interacted with the press. He proceeded to call this as Salman Khan’s career best and guess, he wasn’t wrong. The big, brown towel that he walked out wiping his tears with after watching Bajrangi Bhaijaan, too, was the talking point. Reacting to the same Aamir said, "When I started watching the film, I didn’t have a towel or anything. But I got very emotional in the second half, so I asked my boy to get me something, and he got me that.” LOL!
#2 Katti Batti screening
This was after Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Damn! That means back-to-back crying. Poor Aamir. Well, the actor revealed that his nephew Imran Khan’s performance had touched his heart and he couldn’t stop crying. We believe you, Aamir!
Salman Khan yet again managed to impress the perfectionist. Aamir Khan was so flattered by Bhai’s Akhada skills that the film’s second half left a deep impact on him. “It’s difficult to compare Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan. Both are very good movies. I don’t compare. But Sultan is outstanding, moving, cried in the second half. It is a very inspiring film,” said the actor.
Aamir Khan was the host of this show that highlighted various issues faced by society. Sticking true to the theme of this show, we saw him crying every Sunday because that’s when the show aired. In 2014, he broke down again at the launch of season 3 of Satyameva Jayate. Well, so bad that he had to use his shirt to wipe off his tears! Oops.
While we are at it, the internet made the best out of Aamir Khan's emotions… in the most hilarious way. Here are some of the ‘Aamir Khan Jokes’ that will make you cry out of laughter.
Here are some more.
P.S – We love you, Aamir! Keep slaying, keep crying (of course for good reasons) and Happy Birthday!
