Aamir Khan – Film maker Visited MBC



Dear All,

We would like to thank you Aamir Khan for visiting MBC on Monday night (Sept 10th,2012). Not only he enjoyed playing badminton with our members, we took pictures together with students and their family. He promised that he would come back to play badminton before he left Chicago…

Obviously, he love badminton so much. Even he was very busy making film, he was able to find time and drive all the way from downtown Chicago to MBC to play badminton with us. 

I realized that many members, parents and students were so excited to see their idol, so do i.  I am sure that his presence would not only bring us joy, motivate a lot of badminton players especially our junior and members to continue improving themselves to the next level.

We are so proud to have Aamir Khan to visit us!!

We hope that his new film (Dhoom 3) will be successful !!

See you guys on the court

Sincerely,

MBC

Biography


Aamir Hussain Khan (pronounced [ˈaːmɪr ˈxaːn]) (born 14 March 1965) is an Indian film actor, director, and producer who has established himself as one of the leading actors of Hindi cinema.

Starting his career as a child actor in his uncle Nasir Hussain’s film Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973), Khan began his professional career eleven years later with Holi (1984) and had his first commercial success with Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988). He received his first National Film Award as a Special Jury Award for his roles in the films Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988) and Raakh (1989). After eight previous nominations during the 1980s and 1990s, Khan received his first Filmfare Award for Best Actor for his performance in the major grosser Raja Hindustani (1996) and later earned his second Best Actor award for his performance in the Academy Award-nominated Lagaan, which also marked the debut of his own production company.

Following a four-year break from acting, Khan made his comeback playing the title role in the historical drama Mangal Pandey: The Rising (2005), and later won a Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor for his role in Rang De Basanti (2006). The following year, he made his directorial debut with Taare Zameen Par, for which he received the Filmfare Award for Best Director. This was followed by the thriller Ghajini (2008), which became the highest grossing film of that year, and the comedy 3 Idiots (2009), which became the highest-grossing Bollywood film of all-time, unadjusted for inflation. The Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shri in 2003 and the Padma Bhushan in 2010 for his contributions towards the arts.

On 30 November 2011, Khan was appointed as national brand ambassador of UNICEF to promote child nutrition. Khan is part of the government organised IEC campaign to raise awareness about malnutrition. Aamir Khan is likely to inaugurate the 43rd International Film festival of India in Goa.
