Details for I'LL Do It My Way The Incredible Journey of Aamir Khan
Aamir Khan is an icon and an iconoclast. In contemporary Indian cinema, Aamir Khan has more often than not, taken the less-trodden path, and also delivered box-office hits. Known for his meticulous selection of films, the actor has constantly re-invented himself, and re-defined the approach to film-making within the Hindi film industry.
I’ll Do it My Way: The Incredible Journey of Aamir Khan is a filmography that presents Aamir’s evolution as an actor, focusing on 25 landmark films that have been part of his journey. It retraces Aamir’s rise to stardom as he carved a niche for himself, established himself as an actor with a difference, and broke new ground as a director and a producer. This recently updated second edition considers Aamir’s releases post 2012 in the context of his previous cinema analysed in the first edition.
Aamir’s story is told through interviews and research of press coverage, including perspectives from directors, co-stars and other colleagues — Mansoor Khan, Aditya Bhattacharya, Asif Noor, Indra Kumar, Mahesh Bhatt, Dharmesh Darshan, Nandita Das, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Ronnie Screwvala, AR Murugadoss, Asin, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Raj Kumar Hirani — who have collaborated with him in his landmark films.
Together, they have recreated a multi-dimensional cinematic portrait of an unparalleled Indian actor.
