Khan

Actor

After decades as a hugely popular Bollywood actor-producer-director, the 2018 Khan starrer “Thugs of Hindostan” was a disappointment — but only by his own exalted standards. Budgeted at $32 million, the film grossed $54 million, including $9 million in China. By contrast, his 2016 “Dangal” was India’s all-time highest grosser, earning $310 million, $190 million of it from China. Khan is currently remaking the iconic “Forrest Gump,” titled “Lal Singh Chaddha,” for 2020. The admitted perfectionist burst out in 2001 when his “Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India” was up for the foreign-language Oscar. Since then, his name has been attached to some of India’s biggest hits, including “PK,” “3 Idiots” and “Dhoom 3.” He was inducted into the Academy in 2017.
