Pop Quiz- Can anyone tell Amir’s first movie? It’s Holi right? WRONG!! Before Holi, Amir Khan acted in a movie which was directed by Indrajeet Singh Bansal, a student of Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) at that time.
India FM reported:
It’s been 19 years that Aamir Khan has been a part of the film industry (this is excluding his childhood performances). He made his debut in with Ketan Mehta’s Holi and his first film as a lead actor was Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. But now we found out that Aamir had actually done a film even before he acted in Holi. The superstar of today got his first break when the then FTII student Indrajeet Singh Bansal was shooting his diploma film. Indrajeet met Aamir in a Theatre workshop and took him in his film.
In the video, Aamir Khan is seen as a college student and he also dances on the track Kehdu Tumhe from the film Deewar with his onscreen girlfriend in the typical Bollywood style. It is also said that Ketan Mehta signed Aamir for Holi after he saw the clips of this film. The director of the film, Indrajeet Singh says that Aamir was always very innovative and grasped things quickly.
This movie remained in the library of FTII for about twenty years.Amir has never been to FTII. As a lead actor, Amir’s first movie was Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak which was a huge success and propelled his career. Last year, his two movies, Fanaa, and Rang De Basanti did great business at the box office.
