MUMBAI, India (AP) — Aamir Khan says he's happy he's been able to entertain people during his quarter-century in Bollywood.

He became an instant superstar with his debut in "Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak," which premiered 25 years ago Monday. The film with Khan opposite newcomer Juhi Chawla was a modern Romeo-and-Juliet tale that created box-office history.

He said: "I can't believe how I have reached here, and I feel so happy from my heart that I was able to entertain people."

He's become one of Bollywood's biggest stars and has the cachet to make any project he chooses.

Khan says he sees his failures as being as important as his successes.

"I give importance to my wrong steps because I have (had) opportunity to learn from them and I was able to improve myself."
