Khan

Actor

Known as a perfectionist, choosy about the projects he greenlights as an actor and producer, Khan first came to international prominence in 2001 when drama “Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India,” starring and produced by Khan, was nominated for an Oscar in the foreign-language category. Since then, he has starred in some of the biggest hits in the history of Indian cinema, including “Dangal,” which earned $310 million worldwide. Of that, some $190 million came from China, making it the highest grossing non-Hollywood foreign film in the territory. The Middle Kingdom proved to be a happy hunting ground for “Secret Superstar,” also produced by and starring Khan, collecting most of its $130 million from China. In addition, he headlined top grossers “PK,” “3 Idiots” and “Dhoom 3.”
