Lights, camera, action…and a social message! A dexterous package of emotion, drama, humor, and of course, flamboyant dancing with actors flawlessly lip syncing on, often unnecessary, over the top songs. In India, we call it typical Bollywood “masala movie” (a mix of different spices). And with this ultimate recipe, the multi-billion-dollar Hindi film industry has won millions of fans worldwide.
Today, we’ve got a list of some must-watch classic “Khan movies,” which includes the three greats Khans of the industry, Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan. Without further ado, let’s get into it:
1) Aamir Khan aka Mr. perfectionist

Aamir entered into the landscape of mainstream Hindi cinema with this film over 30 years back and it made him an overnight superstar.

The coming-of-age Aamir movie is a college love triangle drama where a rich brat and a poor chap try to woo a girl and the rivalry comes down to a college bicycle race. The movie wonderfully expresses the old themes of love, friendship and sacrifice.
Andaz Apna Apna
The laugh-riot has not one but two Khans, starring both Aamir and Salman. The plot revolves around two “losers” trying to woo a multimillionaire woman but end up running into a local gangster.
2) Shah Rukh Khan aka The King Khan
Ever noticed the Baazigar poster closely? The 'I' in Baazigar has two girls' head on top of it & a hand tossing a coin to give the final touch! And we guess you guys know the significance 😉 pic.twitter.com/1AoqfKtW4e

The super hit thriller drama is one of the most memorable movies of King Khan, in which he plays the character of a serial killer seeking revenge of his father’s death. The film is a complete package of action, emotion and humor.

The romantic melodrama is the longest-running film in the history of Indian cinema, completing nearly 1,000 consecutive screenings in a Mumbai theater 25 years since its release.
My Name is Khan
The film narrates the story of an Indian Muslim who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome and is mistakenly arrested as a suspected terrorist in Los Angeles after the 9/11 attacks. The film documents his journey to meet the U.S. president to deliver this message: “My name is Khan, I am not a terrorist.”
