Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan are among the most popular actors of Bollywood at this moment. The two ace performers of the tinsel town are now reportedly in the rat race of becoming the no. 1 in Bollywood. Both the actors saw formidable success last year. In fact, both the superstars churned out some box office hits in 2007. Shah Rukh Khan starrer Chak De India and Om Shanti Om rocked the box office, while Aamir Khan led the movie buffs to have a different taste with his first directorial film Tare Zameen Par last year.
Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan has recently involved in a verbal clash though you can term it one-sided as Shah Rukh Khan played it safe. Aamir commented that Shah Rukh Khan was the no. 2 in Bollywood after himself. However, Shah Rukh Khan accepted it saying that it was an honor for him to be no. 2 after Aamir Khan. No doubt, Shah Rukh Khan disappointed the media with his comment, stopping a possible verbal clash.
India Times reported:
Aamir Khan's recent comments on close contender is a testimony to the fact that today stars prefer waging wars in open than back-bitching. The usually reticent and media-shy Aamir was quoted saying, "Shah Rukh Khan prefers being No 2".
OSO was an instant hit while TZP was a slow starter though soon gained momentum. Interestingly, both, SRK and Aamir produced their respective films. And with their success stories both continued to be the most popular and saleable actors of Bollywood.
Well, I want to draw a line here indicating one of the sentences of Shah Rukh Khan’s comment. He said that they were different actors. I think, this is the truth and it would not be so easy to come to a conclusion on the question that who is the best between them. Aamir Khan is known as Mr. Perfectionist who recently turned down a Rs. 20 crore offer just because the party did not have any story right now to submit before him. Shah Rukh Khan, on the other hand, likes to do two to three movies in the lead roles on an average and also make special appearances in some movies a year. So, it is safe to say that both of them are successful actors in their own right.
