Filmfare Awards and the Aamir Story

Actor Aamir Khan finally won the Filmfare Award for Best Actor (Male). 21 years ago, in 1996, Aamir was overlooked for the award for her scintillating performance in Rangeela.


Shah Rukh Khan had won it that year for DDLJ. Many had felt back then that Aamir deserved it more than SRK and Aamir, started boycotting award functions. This award for his performance in Dangal sort of irons out creases in the pitch.
