Unarguably one of the most talented actors in Bollywood, Aamir Khan has been riding high with the commercial success of his directorial debut 'Taare Zameen Par’, which has been widely appreciated by the audience for dealing with an unusual and sensitive theme.

Aamir takes pride in being acknowledged as a bankable star who has ushered in a breath of freshness in films here. He told NDTV, “I enjoy surprising my audience actually. I think I go with my gut and my instinct, when I am reading a script or listening to it I am the audience and if it moves me, it attracts me, I go towards it. So, the initial decision of doing it is very, very instinctive." He added that the success of ‘Tare Zameen Par’ spoke wonders of the changing taste of Indian viewers.
