They may call Shah Rukh Khan, the “King Khan” and Salman Khan, the “Sultan” of Bollywood, but when it comes to the box-office dangal, there’s nobody quite like Aamir Khan. He is a superstar and that’s no secret, indisputably the most bankable Khan, who has given Bollywood some of its highest grossing films in the last 10 years.

You don’t need to follow Bollywood numbers to know that Aamir hasn’t had a single box-office disaster since Ketan Mehta’s Mangal Pandey and the actor’s wrestling drama Dangal of course smashed all records worldwide.

The late 80s and early 90s were however a little different. After a blockbuster debut with Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, the actor had a series of flops. While we may remember Aamir and Juhi for their super hit films like QSQT, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke and Ishq, their jodi also gave some box-office duds like Tum Mere Ho, Aatank Hi Aatank, Daulat Ki Jung and Love Love Love.

Critics and audience call him “Mr. Perfectionist” today, but several of his films have been quietly swept under the rug for… well, obvious reasons. Some of these films are so bad that you wonder if he even read the script before signing them? But, hey it would also be unfair to say that he only gave us flops in the first two decades of his career, we also do remember many of his iconic and memorable films like Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander, Dil and Sarfarosh, to name a few. Since that's something we talk about all the time, let’s dig a little and rewind and recall some the films you’ve totally forgotten about. Catch a glimpse of his most infamous films right here.
