Happy Birthday Aamir! The Top 12 Reasons I Love You!!!

The earlier posts today (here and here) were just updated re-posts from last year.  But this one is entirely original!  Because I couldn’t find the top 11 post from last year!  But let’s pretend it’s because I wanted to do something nice for Aamir’s birthday and not just re-gift.

41. I love you because you were the first celebrity to come “out of the closet” about using a surrogate.

42.  I love you because you have been married twice, and both times you chose someone outside of the fame whirlpool, the girl next door for your first wife and a hardworking behind the scenes producer for your second.

43. I love you because you also went outside of the box for your last 4 heroines.  Two talented child actresses, and two unknown adult actresses.  Not famous models or daughters of superstars or beauty queens.

44. I love you because you are helping your own daughter achieve her dreams, encouraging her to continue her career behind the camera.

45. I love you because you continue to pick projects that sound INSANE, and then make them work in execution.  I have faith that your Thugs of Hindustan will be similarly strange but dignified.

46. I love you because at age 45 you made me believe you were 18.


47.  I love you because you also made me believe you were an alien!  Which was almost as hard.


48.  I love you because you made me go “wow, Aamir is such a great actor!  Really believable as the father of grown children” and then 2 hours later go “Wait, he IS the father of grown children!  I just never think of him that way.”


49. I love you because on the very first songs DVD I bought, this quickly became my favorite song.


50. I love you because you and Juhi Chawla are just as cute together today as you were when you were launched.

51.  I love you because you are also awfully cute with your family.  And you gave us a Holi themed picture for your birthday week!

52.  And finally, I love you because this picture gives me endless joy and amusement (SPOILERS: it will not be the last time you see it this week)

  1. What would be your favorite Aamir film? Or if that’s too hard, what would be your top 5? In the few that I’ve seen, I think 3 Idiots is my favorite.


    • Favorite would be a tie between Ishq (for cheerful happy stupidity) and Ghulam (for all around movie goodness and enjoyable watching).

      Best, I think I might say Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak or Andaz Apna Apna. His post-Lagaan movies have more gloss and class to them, but they aren’t as put together with the clockwork precision of AAA, and they don’t have the soul of QSQT.


      • Oh okay, I think I’ll try to check them out soon. What about Sarfarosh? I heard it was good and I like Sonali Bendre so I wanted to check it out.


        • Sarfarosh is really really good. Have you seen Talaash? It’s got a bit of that vibe. Nothing in common in terms of plot or cast or anything, but the same sort of thoughtful tone to a cop movie. Don’t expect huge over the top fight scenes, or damsel in distress scenes with the heroine, or big item numbers. Aamir doesn’t even have a mustache. But it is very well directed and acted. and the soundtrack is pretty great too.
