Aamir Khan says Salman Khan is No.1

Gearing up to release his much awaited thriller Talaash, Aamir Khan is one of the most bankable stars of Bollywood, but the 47-year-old thinks that it is Salman Khan who sits at the top

When Aamir Khan, the ultimate perfectionist of B-town, has something to say, you better sit up and listen. These days Aamir is eager to see how his reality show Satyamev Jayate will be received by the audience. Once the show goes on air, Aamir will wrap up his much awaited thriller and then start working on Yash Raj Films’ Dhoom 3. Khan certainly has some great roles up his sleeve. And considering Aamir’s extreme choosiness about the projects he accepts, he’s likely to get a promising response at the box office.

Though Aamir has always been one of the most saleable stars of B-town, he doesn’t believe in the ranking business. “I am not No.1. Salman is. Look at his fan following and you will know what I mean,” said Aamir in a recent interview to a daily. He also says that he did not quite stir up euphoria in the early days of his acting career. “Main bas ghodagiri kar raha hoon,” added Aamir. We think Aamir is trying to win us over with his over-the-top humble statements. After all, nobody can deny the fact that he’s always been the chocolate boy of Bollywwod and has always enjoyed an enviable fan following for his looks and acting skills. But we second Aamir’s opinion on Salman. With a string of successful movies like Wanted, Dabangg and Bodyguard, Salman is the number one Khan of the industry. Sallu Bhai’s commanding presence at the box office must be giving a certain King Khan sleepless nights, for sure. But does Shahrukh Khan care these days? We often wonder….
