The romantic film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (QSQT) made Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla overnight stars in 1998. However, things were very different before the film released. Nowadays, we have actors hosting events to promote their upcoming films, but back in the day, Aamir Khan promoted his mainstream debut film QSQT by sticking its posters on auto-rickshaws himself!
More than three decades after its release, an old video of the actor helping out in the film promotions of QSQT has made its way to social media. The video proves that the actor has been a hard-working perfectionist all along. A young Aamir Khan can be seen on the streets of Mumbai, sticking posters of QSQT on the back of an auto rickshaw, along with co-star Rajendranath Zutshi aka Raj Zutshi.
Aamir and Raj look happy while doing their bit to help promote the film. Aamir can be seen wearing a blue vest and shorts and is a carrying a brown leather bag on his shoulder. The retro video is known to Aamir Khan fans, and has surfaced again when a clip from it was shared by Bollywood photographer Manav Manglani on his Instagram handle.
The comments section of the post was soon filled with love and pride for the actor. Actress Sophie Choudry also left a reply saying, "Love this.", while some fans wrote, "Oh my god !! That's a treasure you have", "Loveeeeee this !! Dedication and hard work !! Pays off" and "Who would've guessed this guy is going to become THE Amir khan".
Aamir Khan made his debut as a child actor in his uncle Nasir Hussain's film Yaadon Ki Baaraat in 1973, and then made his debut as an adult in Ketan Mehta's Holi. But his Bollywood debut as the lead actor was in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, which was directed by his cousin Mansoor Khan. The classic romantic drama will turn 32 on April 29, 2020.
After the release of Thugs of Hindostan in 2018, Aamir Khan will finally return to the screen with Kareena Kapoor in Laal Singh Chaddha. The film is the official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks's Hollywood release Forrest Gump. The comedy-drama is directed by Advait Chandan and produced by Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao.
The Aamir Khan starter was scheduled to release in December 2020 around Christmas, but the shift in other film release dates and halt on production due to the Coronavirus pandemic might lead to a delay in release for Laal Singh Chaddha.
