Missed Opportunity in My Name Is Khan

While Aamir Bashir’s collaboration with renowned filmmaker Karan Johar eventually happened in Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, fate had other plans earlier. Aamir was set to portray Shah Rukh Khan’s younger brother Zakir Khan in the 2010 drama My Name Is Khan. Unfortunately, he faced a setback when his US visa application was denied in December 2008. The role eventually went to Jimmy Shergill, Aamir’s co-star from A Wednesday!.

In the latest film by director Karan Johar, Aamir Bashir delivers a powerful performance as Tijori Randhawa, the strict patriarch of the Randhawa family.
