A true triple threat, the actor-producer-director has been one of Bollywood’s most beloved names since he emerged in 2001 with the Oscar-nominated sports musical “Lagaan.” Recently, he’s grown his fandom in China, where 2016’s Indian release “Dangal” was an unexpected $190 million runaway hit and India’s all-time highest grosser. The 2018 Khan starrer “Thugs of Hindostan” was a disappointment but only by Khan’s own exalted standards. Budgeted at $32 million, the film grossed $54 million, including $9 million in China. In its wake, Khan has sought to shine a light on important Indian social issues, narrating and producing “Rubaru Roshni,” an anthology doc about victims of violence. Next up is a surefire hit: the highly anticipated Hindi remake of the iconic Tom Hanks film “Forrest Gump,” titled “Laal Singh Chaddha.”
