In retrospect, it seems prudent that Javed Akhtar penned all the highly unusual and vivid lyrics of Aamir Khan’s first home production. Lagaan.

35 years earlier Lagaan when Aamir was nursing seemingly impossible dreams of becoming a celluloid actor, it was Javed Akhtar who told Aamir’s uncle, noted filmmaker Nasir Husain, “Why is this boy helping you? He’s out and out hero material.”

That’s how Aamir Khan’s career began as one of India’s most adventurous and relentless star actors. Of course he did a couple of sweet periods as a child in his father Tahir Hussain Madhosh and Nasir Hussain’s uncle Yaadon Ki Baaraat. But Aamir does not see them as his authentic beginnings as an actor.

While Nasir Husain starred as his shy and intense nephew to play the lead in his son Mansoor’s directorial debut, Aamir went ahead and made Ketan Mehta’s Holi (during which Aamir shaved his head in protest against unrequited love) and Aditya Chopra’s Rakh—two films about the non-stop angst of the young and the restless that showed the way the actor’s career was going to go.
