Model Answer:

For most Indian people like me, watching Bollywood movies is very much like a ritual. Besides, we treat many Bollywood movie actors like some godly-figures. Today, I would like to talk about one such movie actor who is very popular in my country.

The name of this very popular Indian movie actor is “Aamir Khan”. Starting his movie career in the year of 1985, today Aamir khan is the only Eastern movie actor in the world to be ranked “first” in the world’s highest-earning actors in films.

Known as Mr Perfectionist, Aamir Khan has managed to leave his distinct marks by acting equally good in all kinds of movies, including action, drama, comedy, romantic and historic, among many other types. By the way, Aamir khan isn’t just a versatile Bollywood actor, but also a very successful film director and producer.

And, even though, the movie lovers all know what a superstar he really is in the Indian film industry, a very few of them know that Aamir Khan has, unlike many of his fellow movie stars both in Hollywood and Bollywood, the magical power to consistently open films based on the strength of his name alone. In fact, Aamir Khan has had that power for decades, and he has been scaling new heights with almost every film for at least a decade now. Now, at the age of 55, he isn’t only exceptionally and physically fit, but also a common household name in many parts of the world. Married and with 3 children, Aamir Khan very successfully has managed to portray the struggles of Indian middle-class young people in Indian movies like nobody else today.

Anyway, Aamir khan is so popular, mainly because he works really hard for his movies to make them perfect at any cost. He is so popular also because he likes to take challenging roles in his hand. Besides, all of his films come with inspirational stories in them which draw all kinds of audiences to his movies.
