Aamir Khan's younger brother Faisal Khan also tried his luck in Bollywood and was first launched by their father Tahir Hussain in Madhosh (1994). But that film flopped miserably. Faisal took a six-year-long hiatus before trying his luck in Bollywood once again, this time launched by brother Aamir in his next film Mela (2000). But that too failed at the box office. Post that, Faisal was only seen in a few B-grade movies.
Aamir's once close relationship with his brother hit rock bottom, when Faisal, who reportedly suffers from schizophrenia, accused his brother of working against his interests. However, the two are now believed to have repaired their relationship, ever since the death of their father Tahir Hussain in 2010.
