Khan returned to performing and acting in films in the '80s, scoring a big success with 1988's Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. He has given critically acclaimed performances in Dil, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, Ghulam, Sarfarosh and Earth.
Contrary to the usual process of Indian actors working on several films simultaneously, Khan insists on prior script approval and doing only one film at a time. He and equally famous Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai are the only stars to have appeared in both Coca-Cola and Pepsi ads in Asia.
While attending one of India's premier colleges, miserable engineering students and best friends Rancho (Aamir Khan), Farhan (Madhavan) and Raju (Sharman Joshi) struggle to beat their school's draconian system, which, in their eyes, unfairly values grades over creativity. Loosely based on Chetan Bhagat's best-selling novel &NFi;Five Point Someone&NFi_;, this entertaining Bollywood comedy also stars Kareena Kapoor and Boman Irani.
