Aamir Khan Height

Aamir Khan is perhaps the most famous Indian actor of our time - and not without a reason. He has consistently delivered what other people would have thought impossible, he has broken Bollywood box office records, he puts quality above quantity - in short, he is the lone beacon of hope in the desolated landscape of Bollywood.

About Aamir Khan's Height

Just as Tom Cruise is the undisputed king of Hollywood and also is the shortest mainstream actor there, Aamir Khan - the king of Bollywood is also the shortest actor here - coincidence? Well, they say you shouldn't believe in them.

Anyway, when once asked about his height in an interview, Aamir Khan claimed that he is five feet seven inches tall. What can we say? That maybe he measured his height with Vin Diesel-Esque boots on? Because we don't believe that he is five foot seven inches tall. That is a good five centimeters - he is far from it.

Exaggeration of height is common enough in the entertainment industry - not just in Bollywood, but anywhere in the world. Take, for example, Sylvester Stallone, who is really five feet nine inches tall, but he has consistently claimed in the past to be five feet ten and a half inches tall.

Though when it comes to height exaggeration, Bollywood stars do go out of their way to make them look bigger. John Abraham has a good height - we think he is just shy of the magical six feet mark but when asked about his height, he said that he is six feet one and a half inches tall.

That's nothing really though, popular actor, Ranveer Singh once claimed to be even taller at six feet two inches tall, when in reality he is five feet ten inches (though now he claims to be a flat-six feet tall).

When it comes to Aamir Khan's exaggeration, it is but two inches. We think he is around the five feet five-inch mark and we have a good reason to believe this - we alone in the world have devoted hours and hours of research into such a serious subject as Aamir Khan's real height. We have compared him with many of his fellow actors and actresses - all of them taller than him.

He is short, but he is also an acting powerhouse, and boy does he look good? Just look at his body in Dangal (his younger self's scenes) and Gajini. Aamir Khan, along with Tom Cruise are beacons of hope for short people all around the world - they prove that you can still look good even if you are short.

The real height of Aamir Khan is 5'5" or 165 cm

Aamir Khan's normal weight is 67 kg (150 lbs), which seems a tad bit high for him when keeping his height in mind, but during the shooting of the movie Dangal, he ballooned himself up to a hefty 96 kg (211 lb).
