Khan started with wanting to pursue a career in sports but due to a sports injury early on in his school, he couldn’t go down that route anymore. So, he started to invest more time into acting, doing stage plays. He was known for his impressions of Bollywood actors like Dilip Kumar, and Amitabh Bachchan. After his Bachelor’s Khan enrolled for his master’s in media from Jamia Millia Islamia college but left it incomplete to pursue a full-time career in acting.  

Khan also attended the National School of Drama in Delhi during the early stages of his career. Khan’s acting debut came through the television series Fauji in 1989 directed by Raj Kapoor where he played the role of the lead character Abhimanyu Rai. What followed was more roles in other series like Circus (1989-90), Idiot (1991), including an English-language-based television film In Which Annie Gives It Those Ones (1989), amongst others. At the time Khan was not interested in films as he thought he wasn’t good enough. But his mindset changed in 1991 when he relocated to Mumbai trying to escape the grief of his mother’s death. He was quickly signed up for four movies. 

His film debut came in the 1992 film Deewana where he starred opposite Divya Bharti as the second male lead behind Rishi Kapoor.

The arrival of 1993-94 saw Khan’s transition into villainous roles with two box office hits – Baazigar, and Darr. The former film won Khan his first Filmfare Best Actor Award. Another famous negative role of Khan came with the movie Anjaam, where he played the obsessive lover. At the time Khan was considered risky for taking up such roles as a leading actor. Though Khan’s negative roles didn’t seem to stick around for too long. He had too much charm and a pretty face to play a villain. 

With 1995 came the era of romance for Khan where he transitioned once again from playing obsessive, stalking lover, to becoming the Badshah of Romance, a ladies’ man. With the release of Karan-Arjun and Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge, Khan’s career shot through the roof.
