He went on to appear in several other television serials, most notably in the 1989 serial, Aziz Mirza’s Circus, which depicted the life of circus performers.

Acting career
1988–92: Early work and breakthrough:
Khan studied acting under the mentorship of theatre director Barry John at Delhi’s “Theatre Action Group” (TAG). Khan’s first starring role was in Lekh Tandon’s television series Dil Dariya, but due to production delays, the 1988 television series, Fauji was his television debut. He played the leading role of Commando Abhimanyu Rai in the critically acclaimed show, which earned him mass recognition. He went on to appear in Aziz Mirza’s Circus (1989) and played a minor role in the made-for-television English-language film, In Which Annie Gives It Those Ones (1989). His appearance in these teleserials, led critics to compare his acting style with that of film actor Dilip Kumar. In 1991, Khan shifted base to Mumbai and received his first film offer with Hema Malini’s directorial debut Dil Aashna Hai. However, due to production delays, his second film, Deewana (1992), alongside Rishi Kapoor and Divya Bharti released first. The film became a box office hit, and launched his career in Bollywood. Despite portraying a supporting character in the film, he won a Filmfare Best Male Debut Award, the following year.

1990s:
Upon moving from New Delhi to Mumbai in 1991, Khan made his Bollywood movie debut in Deewana (1992). The movie became a box office hit, and launched his career in Bollywood. His performance won him a Filmfare Best Male Debut Award. His second movie, Maya Memsaab, generated some controversy because of his appearance in an “explicit” sex scene in the movie. In 1993, he won his first Filmfare Best Actor Award for his performance in Baazigar. Later, in 1995, Khan starred in Aditya Chopra’s directorial debut Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, a critical and commercial success, for which he won his second Filmfare Best Actor Award and which entered its twelfth year in 2007 in Mumbai theaters. By then the movie had grossed over 12 billion rupees, making it as one of the biggest movie blockbusters. 1996 was a disappointing year, however, as the movies he released that year failed to do well at the box office. He later starred in a number of successful films including Yash Chopra’s Dil to Pagal Hai (which became that year’s second highest grossing movie and for which won his third Filmfare Best Actor Award), Subhash Ghai’s Pardes (one of the biggest hits of the year), and Karan Johar’s 1998 debut, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (another box office “hit”). He also won acclaim for his performance in Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se which did not do well in the Indian box office, but was a commercial success overseas. Khan’s only release in 1999, Baadshah, was an average grosser.
