Let’s have a look at his journey through his different looks with each new film.
1. Dil (1990)
Aamir, after Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, had the image of a lover boy and wanted to come out of that shell by taking up loud & aggressive characters. He worked really hard for Dil, questioning the director about shots when everyone would laugh on him, later realising he was just being sincere about his work.

2. Rangeela (1995)
Since it was one of his initial films, while filming for Rangeela, Aamir would take notes with a pad and pen and ask the director to act on the inputs. He too would constantly look where he’s going wrong and try to fit in the character completely.
