New Delhi: Bollywood Actor Aamir Khan turns 54 today and to kick off the celebrations, we bring you career highlights of the man who is also known as Mr. Perfectionist.  Khan is not only known for his great work but also for being a true family man.

Aamir started working in films as a child artist in ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat’ . However when he made his movie debut with 1984’s Holi. He later worked in films like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Dil and other romantic movies that made him a star. Two years after his debut, he married Reena Dutta, who had a small role in QSQT. Together, they had a son, Junaid, and a daughter, Ira.

The actor went on to work in hits like Sarfarosh, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, Raja Hindustani, Rangeela, Akele Hum Akele Tum. He later worked in Lagaan, Rang De Basanti, Dil Chahta Hai, Taare Zameen Par, 3 Idiots and more, which earned him great critical acclaim as well.

Reena and Aamir parted ways in 2002 and Reena was given the custody of both the kids. On a recent episode of Koffee With Karan, Aamir spoke about Reena with extreme fondness. “Reena and I were married for 16 years and when we broke up it was traumatic for me, for her and both our families. But we tried to deal with it as best as we could. It did not mean that I lost respect for Reena, or for that matter, I lost my love for Reena. She is a really wonderful person,” he said.

Aamir met Kiran Rao on the sets of Lagaan, on which she was the assistant director. They two got married in 2005 and welcomed their son Azad Rao Khan in 2011. The three now live together in their Mumbai home and treat their fans to adorable family pictures from costume parties.
