Who is this?
It is not Aamir Khan, and he is the only male Bollywood star I know (hangs head in shame)

That's totally Aamir Khan, and he is awesome. You got to love that Bollywood embraces the goofy leading man.

Lagaan!

Oh! Radha Kaise Na Jale is definitely my favourite musical number from Lagaan. Aaamir Khan's so playful and coy while Gauri's just leaving her heart exposed in the performance. I love it when musicals utilise the music to further the storytelling while managing to maintain the levity and the entertainment of spectacle that I love.

I love LAGAAN (one of the very few indian features of have been oscar nominated! and a very deservely one!) and Aamir is the best...I know it's just an opinion but love has nothing to do with democracy, sort of...

this movie is so fun and i thought Aamir Khan was pretty dreamy in it (though i'll admit i don't really know his career)

Aamir is great and, yes, he's quite dreamy

if u want to know something more about this asian megastar, u could check these ones:

GHAJINI, a memento-like thriller in which Aamir plays a bulked guy pearce's version

FANAA, another thriller in which he's a muslim terrorist who falls for sweet blind woman Kajol

Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Aamir's real breakthrough. a dramedy from '89 thanks to whom he stole the heart of almost every indian viewer

EARTH, Aamir plays his first really negative role thanks to the acclaimed director Deepa Mehta. though he wasn't very satisfied by the movie, his perf received a lot of kudos...and rightly so!

Taare Zameen Par, Aamir's debut as director...a delicate drama about a dyslexic child abd his very nice teacher. heartfelt and sweet movie!

@Kelsy Good to know I accidentally identified the correct actor even if it was by insisting it wasn't him. I just think I was full of doubt about my knowledge of Bollywood. Also, I've never seen Lagaan.

I have to say, I've never seen the film but I find the number charming. It's very catchy. The costume design and use of colors is beautiful. Not to mention the choreography

Lagaan!
