The Sarkar filmmaker's statement is spreading like wildfire...
Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan - who is a bigger star in Bollywood today? Well, many would give you a tailor made safe answer and talk about how the number one game is unfair and invalid. But Ram Gopal Varma begs to differ ad he not only has an answer to this controversial question, but also an explanation. In an interview to The Indian Express, when RGV was asked about Salman's growing popularity and rise as compared to SRK, the filmmaker said, "He (Salman) already is a bigger star than SRK right now." That's not all Ramu also went on to say, "Eventually stardom is about collections. The star whose last three films collected the biggest will obviously be the bigger superstar", suggesting that Salman has outperformed Shah Rukh at the box office. The Veerappan director's first reaction to this question was, "What do you mean by emerging?"
A while back RGV hd taken on the Raees actor on his Twitter page, he wrote....
While Ram Gopal Varma declared Salman a bigger superstar than Shah Rukh, he also went on to compare the Fan actor with Leonardo DiCaprio, he said, "I think especially for superstars it is very dangerous to take up a story or different kind of a concept unless he is consciously making the decision." And added, "That is where I drew the comparison to Leonardo Di Caprio. Caprio is a superstar but the fact that he wants to push himself into very different kind of cinema is a conscious decision that he has taken. That’s up to him what he wants to do. But here somebody wants to become a superstar. He wants every film to collect 300 or 400 crores. Then you can’t afford to be like that."
We wonder what SRK has to say. Will he take RGV's these blunt yet flattering comments as a underhand compliment or then otherwise.
