Why does Aamir Khan consider Salman Khan as a bigger star than him?

The Dhoom:3 will not be promoting their film on the most popular television reality show Bigg Boss 7, but that doesn’t change the equation between the Khan buddies

Salman Khan sported Aamir Khan’s trademark hat from Dhoom:3 on Bigg Boss, was this a friendly gesture? And now returning his favour Aamir Khan has sung praises for the Dabangg actor. Aamir lavished praise on his contemporary Sallu, even went on to call him ‘powerhouse of star power’. At a recent event when Aamir was quizzed about the Khan rivalry between Salman, Shah Rukh Khan and himself AK said,  “I can answer for myself. I don’t have any negative thoughts about competition with anyone and I thank my ammi (mother) for it. It’s not in my nature. I understand that there are people who think otherwise, but it’s not in me to look at another person’s work, and think, ‘How come he did so well? How will I do as well?’ I just don’t feel like this.  When I saw Sanju (Sanjay Dutt) in Munnabhai M.B.B.S. and Lage Raho Munnabhai, I was so happy with his work, or even when I saw Ranbir (Kapoor) in Barfi!.

The Dhoom actor spoke highly of Sallu, “Salman is my friend. He is a bigger star than me. When I see him in Dabangg, I feel very happy. Salman doesn’t need to do anything. He is a powerhouse of star power.  Woh sirf belt hilaata hai, chashme theek karta hai, and see his magic. I have no competitive feeling.” That compliment would definitely bring a smile on the Sallu’s face, na BollywoodLifers?

His praise for the Wanted actor didn’t end there, when he refused to oblige to public demand to show off his well toned body and his Tap dance. However he added, “Salman would have done it both – tap dance and he would have shown his six-pack as well.  I am a shy kind of person.”
