Everybody knows that Aamir Khan is one of very few intelligent thinking actors in the Hindi Film Industry.

Aamir Khan is my most admired actor in Bollywood and to be very honest, he is the most talented and respected actor of his generation or one of the best. May be his popularity is less than other two Khans, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan but Aamir Khan is a superstar in his own right.

He may not have won many awards like Shah Rukh Khan but he deserves more then he has got. He has been part of the movies which are going to be all time classics like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Dil, Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, Andaz Apna Apna, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, Rangeela, Raja Hindustani, Lagaan, Dil Chahta Hai, Rang De Basanti and also his directorial debut Taare Zameen Par. Not to forget his performances in his other movies.

Aamir Khan has never been a let down for his acting performance. If you take the past history also, there are only three actors, who could just be little better then him; Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan and Late Sanjeev Kumar. Even Aamir Khan has proved his histronics in all kind of roles and different genres of cinema.

Aamir has been successful in other endeavors also. Be it as a singer in Ghulam - we all love that song 'Aati Kya Khandala'. He has also been an excellent brand ambassador - who can forget his advertisements for 'Titan' and 'Coke'. There is always quality in his work. He does less but what he does is best.

He has been a successful producer with the Oscar nominated Lagaan and now Taare Zameen Par. Lots of people did not have faith in these movies that it will succeed. They have not only become blockbusters but they are the pride of Indian Cinema. His directorial debut Taare Zameen Par was the only movie last year, which brought tears in my eyes. I watched most of the people reaction in the theatre, they were all moist eyed. Audience became part of the film while watching it. Many of them felt, it was their story or the story of their children. It educated us. After watching the movie, we do feel 'there needs to be a change in the education system of our country (India)'.

Children are over burdened with studies and they are not able to enjoy their childhood. It was about the dyslexic child but the story is for every child. There is too much of pressure for studies from parents today. They forget that they are just small children. Can't these children enjoy their childhood the way they want?

The actor has made a brilliant movie and it was very nice of him to make it as his directorial debut. We are looking forward to more movies like this. We salute you to make such a meaningful film. Darsheel Zafary has given an excellent performance and he should have genuinely got the Best Actor Award.

Three kudos to Aamir Khan and his team for making the thought provoking Taare Zameen Par!
