The parents of most of the stars currently working in the film industry are well-known, be it the more experienced lot of celebrities or the newer lot. Tahir Hussain is arguably one of the lesser-known names in this category, especially for those who started following the film industry in recent years. However, his accomplishments are no less, attaining success as a producer and also portraying roles as an actor and director a few decades ago.
Tahir Hussain is also the father of Aamir Khan. On Tahir Hussain’s 10th death anniversary, Aamir paid a tribute to him by sharing amazing throwback pictures. The actor is only seen as a baby in these pictures, but his father hobnobbing with some of the biggest names of the industry that showed his legacy.
In one photograph, a young Aamir is all smiles as a kid in the arms of his father. In another, he is much younger and chubbier as his father has held him while his mother Zeenat has held his sister. Another snap features Tahir Hussain sharing a fun-filled moment with Shammi Kapoor and others from his younger days.
