Presenting Bollywood ka King – Aamir Khan!

Caricature Cartoon Sketch of Aamir Khan the King of Bollywood - Indian Actor, Producer, and Director.

Bollywood ka King - Aamir Khan!

Lost? The Story Behind this Caricature of Aamir Khan:

What you  need to know in order to understand this caricature is that Bollywood is dominated (was) by three Khans. They all came into the industry almost together and India watched their progress with great interest. These three Khans were:

There was a time when the three Khans were in obvious competition.

  • Then Salman destroyed himself (he does weird things, like hunting endangered animals  – and I remember that he even mowed down some people – one person died – once.) The overall impact of these legal hassles was that in this race of the three Khans, he fell behind.
  • Shahrukh was ahead in the race (the man is talented and when he was younger, he was much better looking than the other two – ever since he got into the six-pack business, his face has begun to look like a desiccated mango :-( ) Unfortunately, fame got to his head (happens with people who come from humble backgrounds and become very famous) and he went around telling everyone that he was the King of Bollywood.
  • Aamir however was used to fame from an early age, and so when he became successful, he stayed humble. Now humility is something that is appreciated a lot in India and we especially like to see some of it in those we idolize – helps our egos I guess. So, in the long run, he emerged the winner.

Aamir Khan’s Shortest Biography on the Web:

Born on March 14, 1965, Aamir Khan is one of the most popular actors in Indian Cinema today. He began his career in 1973, as a child actor (who played the character of Ratan, the third brother) in Yaadon ki Baaraat. This film was produced by his Uncle. Thus, Aamir Khan belongs to the first wave of Bollywood Putras (Sons of Bollywood) in Bollywood. In 1988, at the age of 23, Aamir acted as the male lead in QSQT (Quayamat se Quayamat tak), which was made by his cousin.

Aamir Khan’s Rise to Fame:

Aamir however was made for bigger and better things. He turned producer for the film Lagaan in which he also played the male lead – and Lagaan was nominated for the Academy Award. In 2007, for the first time, he turned a director with the movie, Taare Zameen Per (Stars on the Ground) – a movie about the struggle of a dyslexic child. Next he dazzled India with Ghajini (and his young male fans went around sporting the weird hairstyle that you see here.) And then came 3 Idiots – the inspiration for this cartoon.

And so, Aamir won the race with three phenomenal successes in a row, Taare Zameen Per, Ghajini, and 3 Idiots.

Recently, he also received the Padma Bhushan for his work…and right now, as he says on his blog, he is on a promo-tour for his newest film Peepli Live (already in controversy for its song, Mahangai dayan (inflation witch)).

Alll Ijjj Wellll!

  1. I have read the Shahrukh Khan King of Bollywood book, but it was more a history of Bollywood than him! ;-) Enjoyed it though… gave me some insight in a world I don’t know much about! :-D
    Will you do him as well sometime?
    Thanks you! :-)

  2. Bollywood is a completely foreign world for me but I really enjoyed your post & the caricature Shafali!
    “ever since he got into the six-pack business, his face has begun to look like a dessicated mango” haha and I loved this description- I know what you mean by ‘dessicated mango’ :)

    • Hi Lua,

      Welcome back:) Despite Bollywood being a foreign topic to you, you read through the post and commented. I appreciate it.

      About the six-pack abs business, every nutty youngster trying to ape these forty-something actors is losing his innocent look and is beginning to look like a plastic toy. Oh, and forgot to add the additional sheen that they add to themselves through depilation.

      Warm Regards,
      Shafali
