Early Life

Khan was born on March 14, 1965 in Bombay, India. His father is Tahir Hussain, a film producer, and his mother is Zeenat Hussain. He grew up with this younger brother and two younger sisters. He grew up around the film industry, considering his father’s job, as well as because a number of his paternal relatives were also members of the Hindi film industry.

Khan began appearing in films at the age of eight. His first film appearance was in “Yaadon Ki Baaraat” in 1973 followed by a role in “Madhosh” the following year. He attended the J.B. Petit School followed by St. Anne’s High School and then Bombay Scottish School. Khan played tennis at the state level. Because of the challenges his father had had being successful in the film industry, Khan’s parents hoped he would pursue a more steady career. However, he decided to discontinue his studies after completing high school and instead became an assistant director on Hindi film sets.

Career

Khan started his career working as an assistant director and also acting in student documentaries made by students of the Film and Television Institute of India. The director, Ketan Mehta, noticed Khan in one of these films and offered him a role in his experimental film, “Holi.” Though the film was not broadly popular, it did help Khan land future roles. He was cast as the leading man in “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak,” which received seven Filmfare Awards. Khan himself won the award in the Best Male Debut category.

He also appeared in the crime thriller, “Raakh,” which was critically-acclaimed. Khan won the National Film Award in the Special Mention category for his performance.

Khan’s success continued for much of the 1990s, often appearing in one or two popular films per year. This was actually considered unusual for a leading man in Hindi cinema as it was more common for them to appear in films more frequently. In 1996, he appeared in “Raja Hindustani,” which earned him his first Filmfare Award for Best Actor. The film also went on to become the biggest hit of the year. He finished the 1990s by appearing in “Ishq,” “Ghulam,” “Earth,” and “Sarfarosh.”
