Aamir Khan: The Chameleon Who Undergoes A Transformation For Every Role


Bollywood is going through a strange phase, on one hand there is a lot of demand and appreciation of content driven cinema, on other hand, the business demands numbers, which can only come in if masses go out and watch a film.

So while it’s clear that the trick lies in balancing the two aspects, it is easier said than done. However, one actor who has nailed this trick, and constantly keeps innovating with each appearance is Aamir Khan. While it is almost obvious that the superstar will give a stellar performance every time, one thing that audience eagerly wait for is Aamir’s look in each film.

The actor puts in considerable efforts to get into skin of each of his characters, and in process undergoes a physical transformation as well. From putting on tons of kilos, to going bald, this actor has done it all.

Let’s take a look at some of Aamir’s most memorable avatars

Back in early 2000, Aamir took the fashion world by storm with his gelled and spiked hairdo and stubble in Farhan Akhtar’s Dl Chahta Hai. His look was sort of a rage, and almost everyone tried to copy his style in one way or another.

2) Taare Zameen Par

One of the most sensitive portrayals ever, Taare Zameen Par was a landmark film in the history of cinema. But apart from educating the audience about dyslexia, Aamir also set major hairdo goals with his spiky hairstyle.

3) Ghajini

Arguably one of the most well formulated looks ever, the superstar’s ripped physique and bald look with a gash in the middle awed the audience, and remains a favourite even today.

4) PK

Burgundy lips, larger than normal ears, oversized jeans; PK was one of the most ‘unheroic’ heroes of Bollywood. And no one except Mr Perfectionist could have pulled it off with such charm.

5) Dangal

Few years ago, almost everyone was taken aback when Aamir Khan was spotted at the airport with almost white hair and had put on considerable amount of weight. To fit into the role of Mahabir Phogat, the actor put on oodles of weight and sported unflattering Kurta Pyjamas in the film, and the rest they say, is history.

He has now dived into the promotions of his next film, Secret Superstar, and this time the actor has completely transformed his look, he is seen wearing tight t-shirts, flashy jackets, unusual jeans and different kinds of shoes. His look is totally colorful and Aamir Khan is nailing it completely for his upcoming movie ‘Secret Superstar’. Aamir Khan has not only experimented with his attire, he has also changed his haircut and his beard which looks super cool and interesting.

A chameleon indeed.
