Indian movie megastar Aamir Khan, who starred in and produced Oscar nominated Bollywood epic Lagaan, has signed with LA talent agency Endeavor for all areas of representation in the US.

Khan, who has starred in more than 25 films, made his film debut in 1988 in Qayamat Se Qayamet Tak. His other recent credits include Dil Chahta Hai (2001), Mela (2000), Sarfarosh (1999) and Mann (1999).

'We're excited to be working with Aamir Khan,' say the Endeavor partners in a statement. 'In addition to being a gifted actor and producer, he is a key player in the most important growth area for the motion picture industry today.'

Khan continues to be represented by his London-based agent Michael Foster of Artists Rights Group. He was not the only Lagaan film-maker to secure US representation as a result of the film's Academy Award profile: director Ashutosh Gowariker signed with ICM.
