I am competing with myself and not with SRK or Salman: Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan has held a special video conference with select media today afternoon. He held the conference to celebrate Dangal success. At the event, he stated clearly he doesn’t have any interest in working for Hollywood.

On talking about his competition in Bollywood he said, “I’m only competing with myself. I’m not competing with Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar or anyone. There is Ajay, Hrithik, Ranbir, Ranveer - there are so many actors there who are wonderful actors. I am not a competitive person by nature.  When I see somebody's good work, I love it. When I saw Sultan, Dabbang - I loved it! When I saw Munnabhai.... I loved Sanjay's work. When I see Ranbir-Ranveer's work, it really inspires me, makes me happy. I don't find myself competing with anybody, I only compete with myself. Competing is a very strange word. I am trying to better myself. I am trying to learn and do better than what I did earlier. As a creative person, as an artist, I am trying to improve myself. So yes, I am trying to be better than what I did earlier - as a creative person, not from a business point of view."

He also shared his thoughts of working with Amitabh Bachchan in Thugs Of Hindostan, “We are not competing with each other. I will never see this in a competitive manner and I believe Mr. Bachchan is a much greater actor than me. I will just do what I’m supposed to do while working for the film.”

Aamir also revealed that he does not care for commercial awards. "For me, Dangal has already got the biggest award. The way the audience has given the love to the film, yeh sabse bada award hai mere liye. Commercial awards are of no value to me and I don't think it will never change."

  3. Dilwale which was last Christmas release grossed around $26 million. Despite the fact that it was an average film and faced strong competition from Star Wars, the film grossed huge due to the presence of Shahrukh Khan.

    koi poch rah tha mujhe stardom yani kya...stardom yani opar lines...jo Amir ke pass bilkul nahi hai...
    script khan...THE LAASH best example

    1. To fir fan ka kya hua..oscar material film thi wo to..bhool gaya kajol bhi thi saat me dilwale me..

    2. Dr janghir Khan aamir Khan film was competing with rogue one passengers and assassins creed oh yeah and will smith's collateral beauty and like I said before if srk or salman did talaash film would struggle to do 50cr domestic let alone the 93cr it achieved.

  4. Top 10 bollewood grosser films
    Aamir khan = 792+ 684+542+395=2413
    Salman = 626 +580+405 =1611
    Srk =422+391+383= 1196
    Salman + srk (6 movies) = 2807
    Amir alone (3 movies ) = 2413
    [Note: dangal is still in theaters, and yes to release in china ]

  5. One can confidently say that Aamir Khan is truly one of a kind.

    He's really an artist, a film maker, loaded with passion.

    There are few like him not only in the industry but even in life in general!

  8. I respect aamir for his hardwork....For just one shot(fighting as young by aamir)he transform his body from a fat man to totally fit and healthy man....
    But all other actors are also good like salman,Srk,rabir,ranver,akshay,ajay,hrithik,varun.....

  9. Comment:all stars are good in there works I have huge respect for Akki, Aj, srk, sk and Ammir because what ever they are today because of their hard works and dedication towards the work

  10. kisi or acter k pichwade me dam h....jo sirf roll k liye buddha bn jaye...??....kya pta fir recover hi na ho paye....buddha or faty hi rah jaye...??

  11. salman khan is biggest star...cz without content jo itni saari blockbuster de skta h...wo to great star hi ho skta h.... aamir khan without content kuch v nhi h....salman ne bajrangi bhaijan movie banayi content wali...amir ki faad di thi...aamir ko s s rajamoli ko thanx bolna chaiye, jo bahubali release kr di us time....aamir ki tarah ticket k rate v nhi badhata salman, tax free krakr v 400 crore nhi kama paa raha aamir, ek mahine se akele lgi h hall me...ghanta ka star h...only content se kamati h movie...content se to kangna v 150 crore kama leti h...

  12. Yaar, I don't know why people brings Christmas/Eid/Holiday season into the picture when talking about the success or a failure of any movie. Kisi ne mana to nahi kiya koi aur movie release karne ke liye. It's the stardom & the reputation of an actor only which creates a doubt in the mind of other producers & actors & that refrains them to release their movie during that time or even 2-3 weeks after that & hence Aamir Khan has done they precisely.

    Also if content is the only parameter behind the success of Aamir Khan movies, then why the hell producers are casting him as an actor? Why are they not approaching anyone else who can do the same job in half of the price that Aamir Khan is charging to them?

    However I somewhat feels that Salman Khan has got the maximum stardom in the industry & hence the reason why his movies are making such a huge money even after an average script & acting standards.

    So It's up to an individual to prefer stardom over script or visa versa but somehow I feel the time has come where people (specially in metro cities) do prefer content or a message to society over the stardom.
