I can't compete with Salman Khan at the box office: SRK

Shahrukh Khan who is one of India's biggest superstar has said that he can't compete with Salman Khan at the box office. He was talking to Femina magazine for an interview.

"Let’s look at it like this. I can’t compete with a Salman Khan at the box office; none of us can. That is the reality. In other fields like, say, with a male or a female pilot, both are paid equally for what they bring to the table. So a designer, doctor, architect, chauffer or engineer is paid the same, irrespective of gender. But market forces dictate our payment in the film industry because they define the result at the turnstiles. When we ask for equal pay, a lot of pressure is put on women actors to sell the movie on their own steam. I know that women actors work five times harder and get paid 10 times less than men.

In my own small way, I have asked for their names to appear before mine in credit roll. I attempt to pay them as well as I can in my own productions; I’ve co-produced films with women directors and actors. I believe I am the change. I always see a story from a woman’s point of view, make sure the woman’s role is meaty. Do you know that my walk in Don was fashioned after a lady’s ramp walk? And to be honest, I feel that it’s not entirely a losing battle. Today, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra take home really good pay packets, more than some heroes. And they deserve it. I don’t know if they take more than me or Salman but they’re celebrated for their worth."

Shahrukh Khan is going through a rough phase recently as some of his films have not fared well as compared to his contemporary Salman or Aamir.

  1. Not even Aamir...being a Salman Fan i honestly accept that Aamir & srk are much better actor than salman..but when it comes to stardom in bollywood, no one can beat salman, i repeat no one

    1. Aesalan well said bro

      I said many time that aamir is good actor but in stardom he is behind from salman

      Which is proved that aamir got higher grosser coz of his contant movie but with normal contant he cannot get blockbuster which is proved already

      In my article many trader and site already wrote only salman can overshadow story and contant with his personna

      We always except truth but some dumb aamir fan always argue like parashya and Saurb and they will keep continue same path coz they will prove that they are.biggest dumb here

      Too much fun

      1. I also agree with u in stardom sallu will lead but in acting skill noone beat aamir.. as we called them actor,and we know those who do good in their respect field is known as master or legend, so u can guess who is legend now...

      1. Dumb here people talking for stardom and fan following with charisma

        Not talking for Christmas mini World Cup star ?

        Too much fun

    2. Chamchagiri ki bhi hadh ho gai remember when he called himself king Khan well salman Khan is blockbuster Khan

  2. Band kar apni bakwaas.9 saalo se aamir ko koi beat nahi kar pa raha hai aur Yeh pagal bol raha hai no one.

  3. Teri Aukaat hi kyaa hai ....
    You can't even compete with Hritik.

  4. I know it will hurt u @saurabh ?..par aamir ne pichle kuch saalo me bahut jabardast movies ki h 3 idiots, pk, dangal jaisi..uska script selection bahut faadu h...Salman ne pichle kuch saalo me Ready, bodyguard, prdp, dabangg2 jaisi weak script wali movies ki h aur unko blockbusters banaya h..thats why Salman has more stardom than aamir, accept it or die ?

  5. bollywood has two category
    actor and star
    all top personalities of bollywood are mixer of these two elements. Salman is 80% star and 20 actor, Ajay devgn 65% actor 35% star like wise we can go on
    currently its only Aamir who is perfect combo or star and actor and Ranbir is coming close to it

  6. Form (stardom) is temporary but class is permanent ! No body can stop aamir khan being the greatest actor of all time. Saira banu said he is next dilip Kumar , Rishi Kapoor said he is raj Kapoor . some people say he is guru duty, a legend actor. So stardom doest not matter it ends one day. Many superstars came and gone but class remains.

    1. saira banu said....and dilip kumar said no one can matches with SRK after wacthing Devdas...wo nahi pada...

      saira banu has close realtion with Mansoor and Nasser saab...so keep his heart bol diya.

  7. First I'm Bollywood Fan & i've watched srk salman aamir movies in cinema the fact is if you don't have a gud script you won't get good results so those who r saying stardom is everything thats totally wrong .. stardom factor is only for week end & on holidays ... no one can give a hit movie wid bad script + widout holidays... not salman not srk not aamir no one & on week days the content of the film is tested.. stardom won't bring neutral fans out even you're fan won't come to watch if its not a gud film .. i'm a SrK fan but Happy new year was a bad movie still it did 200 crores just bcoz his first week end collections were big (all time record) ... same happened wid FAN movie ..if you ever want to know abt srk stardom just look at his Overseas collections even his average movie Dilwale was a blockbuster.. he's world biggest star for a reason .. indians should be proud of him

  8. Sale uski aukat toh naye.actors se bhi compete karne ki nahi hai and reality is that he knows that he can't break any records of salman so he gave this statement
    I want to beat srk if he said it again

  9. SRK or AAMir acting wise badde actor hai SRK ko bus ek film chahiye jis se unka career dobara track pr aa jayega Stardom he sb kuch nahi hota aaj ki generation content dekhti hai chahe wo content bold he kiun naa ho

  10. Salman khan ne apne career mein just films aisi ki hai jinka content strong tha ek Bajrangi Bhaijaan or dusri SULTAN Aamir Khan ne bhi aaj tak Salman khan ki just 2 films ki tareef ki hai ek Bajrangi BHAIJaan or dusri SULTan Aamir Khan or Salman Khan Jis waqt romantic films krtey thy us waqt SRK villain ke role kr ke zaida famous ho chuka tha ache content ki movies pehle SRK he offer hui SRK ko he 3 idiots pehle offer hui SRK NE vidhu vinod chopra ko kaha tha ke mil kr 3 idiots produce krte hai magr wo nahi manna phir Munna bhai MBBS bhi pehle SRK Ko he offer hui magr us waqt SRK shoulder injury ka shikaar thy

  11. amir lives with perfection,he is the gentleman........and most importantly his acting looks NATURAL compared to salman or srk or anybody else and that is how it all means to be an actor......that is why everybody likes him......and nowadays his films are worth to be watched ........he gives life,he brings something new every time....am i right or wrong......???

  12. just simply wow.....

    statistics dont lie......atleast dont lie completely.....

    hats off to Aamir .........time n again, he's shown how visionary he is.......

    one movie in two years.......is some SERIOUSLY BIG RISK......more so for someone in showbiz .......

    dont think you can call him any less star than anyone else .......Aamir has some GREAT EXTRAORDINARY fan following, just that not all those come out fighting or participate in online polls.....!!!

  13. Ye hakla inke to kya akshay ke samne bhi khada hone layak nahi hai haklu bakri media made pluto star

  14. srk is ryt for a mean while but he wil be back in his upcoming movie raees. raees will not make huge collection because of the battle and the releasing period, i am sure that it will be liked by the audience........

  15. tu abhi bacha hoga doodh pita, srk ka kaam dekha hai kabhi. dekhta toh khud hakla ho jata.......

  16. Ek dum sahi bolo shahrukh .. salman bhi is Tarah kuch bolta hogA mere pass shahrukh ke tarah awards nahi hai.. shahrukh flop film hua tho kya award tho tu hi le Jata hai ..

  17. Truely agree with you Srk that women works harder than men but paid 10 times less than men....
    Hope srk will bounce bank again with raees....
    Best of luck bollywood industry...all actors to give best movies in coming years...

  18. Talking about Srk,aamir and salman...
    All are great actors and hope they will do good movies in future...
