Khan showed the world how adaptive he was when he took on his various roles. His exquisite style showed the world a man who could be charming, clever, and at times maniacal and dangerous. During his decades-long career, he won his way into many fans hearts.

His rise to international fame came with his role in the movie Slumdog Millionaire. This movie won seven BAFTAs and eight Academy Awards. Khan also had memorable roles in other movies such as, Jurassic World, Life of Pi, and The Amazing Spiderman.
