CareerEdit

Khan made his acting debut in 1998 with a leading role in the romance Prem Aggan, which garnered him the Filmfare Best Debut Award. Khan rose to prominence with starring roles in the acclaimed thriller Jungle (2000), the crime comedy Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega (2001), the drama Om Jai Jagadish (2002), the supernatural horror Bhoot (2003), the romance Janasheen (2003), and the comedies No Entry (2005), Heyy Babyy (2007), Life Partner (2009), and All the Best: Fun Begins (2009). He earned critical recognition for his performances in the 2001 thriller Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya, the 2004 drama Dev, the 2004 romantic thriller Fida, and the 2005 crime thriller Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena.

In addition to acting in films, he has participated in concert tours and stage shows. In May 2001, Khan was arrested for attempting to buy cocaine.[5]

In 2010, after his last starring role, Khan took a hiatus from the movie business in order to focus on his family. In December 2020, speculation arose that he may be planning a comeback to acting after being spotted outside the office of film director Mukesh Chhabra. Chhbra later confirmed that the two were exploring opportunities and that they would begin working on a new project in 2021.[6]
