Ok, I admit it! I have been in love with Aamir Khan since I was 9 years old. In fact I even told him this little fascinating tidbit when I met him for the first time and he smiled serenely until I blushed like a true blue fangirl. So on his birthday I thought it would be only fitting to tell you my 10 most favorite AK movie moments! Obviously he has a bazillion more, but these 10 make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :)
1. The Aamir – Juhi Connection
Seriously, I loved these two together. From QSQT & Love Love Love to Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke & Ishq. In QSQT in fact I recall really liking Juhi Chawla‘s Rajput style of speaking a lot too :)
In fact in Andaz Apna Apna Aamir even dreams of meeting Juhi as a cute nod to their acting history together :) #cuteness
Can we get a reunion please folks? Pretty please :)
Watching Aamir Khan & Madhuri Dixit in Dil made me want to ride around on a truck full of hay or jump into a haystack for the longest time! Truth-be-told I still kinda want to :)
3. Raghu Jaitley’s attitude.
Cos, you can just imagine, all through Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin you want to be mad at him and laugh all at the same time! Plus the look he gives Pooja Bhatt at the beginning of this scene totally slays me.
4. Pehla Nasha.
Obviously Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander had to make the list and this song especially. Whatever happened to Ayesha Jhulka btw?!
Muna’s drunk scene was epic in this movie, (that and the AC idhar ghuma!) again I couldn’t find that on YouTube so why don’t you watch the abey tu pair dekh raha hai ya picture?! bit instead :)
6. Uncle KAUN?!
I know everyone has their favorite moment from Andaz Apna Apna, but for me it has to be this one (for reasons I’ve told you before!)
Amar, “SHUTUP! Khabardaar jo aage ek lavz bhi kaha to! Saala waise hi itni pareshania hai, Raveena kaun? Karishma kaun? Uss musibat se nikle nahi, ki ab ek nai musibat… UNCLE KAUN!”
Psst! Enjoy the two minute version here :)
7. Sarfarosh Shayari
@cybercalci tweeted that I please include a scene from Sarfarosh. So I picked this one. Again his whole mock-serious officer vibe is the CUTEST. And I really loved how this song had bits of shayari in between verses :)
8. Rang De Basanti, the sad stuff.
There’s this scene where DJ (Aamir) is eating dinner and gets all emotional and starts crying. Breaks my heart every time. And can you just imagine how hard it was to pull that off realistically?!
*I couldn’t find this particular scene on YouTube but if you do, leave me a comment and I’ll add it in!
Anyway he’s done it again in Dil Chahta Hai while on the phone. (In the new millennium we started seeing a more intense & mature AK. The kind we all wanted to marry!)
PS. This scene from RDB gave @the_gypsygirl goosebumps:
9. Fanaa for you.
This antakshari medley was so cute! I love that they sang all the songs themselves and I bet he picked his :)
10. 3 Idiots, Taare Zameen Par & Ghajini
I just realised most of my favorites are from decades gone by, but don’t get me wrong I love all of these too :) I just have fonder memories of his wonder years I suppose. But he still has the BEST comic timing ever and he looks super cute in glasses!
