Aamir Khan’s Dhoom 3 became a massive hit and has redefined Box Office Collections in the last two weeks; having grossed almost Rs 370 crores. This, combined with his previous films which have been major success, effectively puts Aamir Khan at the top spot in the industry. However, Khan himself feels that another Khan, Salman, is a bigger star than he is.
Aamir said, “Salman is the number one star. He just bulldozes all the logic. I do not believe in competition. While I and Salman are big stars and both of us want to grow better with each film, I would say I have nothing but just warmth and love in my heart for Salman. I personally believe he is a bigger star than me. He has the ability to take a film on his shoulders but I don’t think I have the ability to do so. I am fond of him. I love him.”
On his other contemporaries, he said “Ranbir, I liked him in Barfi a lot. I felt the need to learn something from him. I love to see good work. I am also the audience. Good work gives me joy, and I don’t mind if it’s not mine. Even Shah Rukh! I really liked Shah Rukh’s Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and there is one film I want to see even now – Chak De! India. I think Shah Rukh is an extremely charming actor. He always brings a smile on your face.”
