When it comes to the name “Khan”, three names come to our mind. They are none other than Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan.
Notably, they are successful actors and have time and again delivered hit films. Notably, they have a massive fan base across the world. In fact, all these three actors are unrelated. However, they happen to share the same surname.
Surprisingly, all three of them were born in 1965. It is due to their longevity and popularity, that they are considered the most successful actors in the history of Indian cinema.
Shah Rukh Khan is one of the great actors who has been ruling Bollywood for decades. He has a massive fan following in India and has totally ruled the box office whenever hit movies hit the screens. Notably, fans would turn up in numbers to watch all of his movies.
For the uninitiated, SRK is India’s richest actor, filmmaker, and TV personality. He is famously known as the Badshah of Bollywood and has appeared in over 80 films. The actor graduated from Hansraj College.
When SRK Reacted To Ranbir Kapoor ‘Competing’ With Him and Said this thing
In an old interview, the video which is now on Reddit, Shah Rukh Khan was asked about actors like Ranbir Kapoor comparing themselves. When asked whether he too finds younger and older actor completion and his views on this competitiveness in the industry, he said, “No, I don’t have any competition. I’ll be very honest. I don’t say that with immodesty or self-centered pompousness. I (shrugging) don’t have any competition.”
Shah Rukh Khan continued, “I’m not come here to compete, I’ve come here to rule and I believe that when I wake up in the morning. I don’t want it to be a universal truth that I feel I am the king, I am the best – I’m not saying it to that (inaudible). This is what a simple lower-class, middle-class boy gets up in the morning, and has dreams in his eyes, when he comes to Mumbai says ‘I’m going to rule this. I’m going to rule it over the people who existed here – in all goodness, in all niceness. I don’t have a father, I don’t have a grandfather, I don’t have a mother who can give me that extra push here in Mumbai. But I’m going to be a star who is self-made.”
King Khan continued, “If I’m going to be self-made, I’m going to create a catergory for myself that doesn’t exist before and will never exist after. My son will not be able to get up in the morning and say ‘I’m going to be a self-made star,’ I’m an individual star. I like it that way. For 20 years, I have wrongly been compared to greats like Mr Bachchan and I feel very embarrassed when I’ve done that. For 20 years I’ve been compared to youngsters who just started and are 3 films and I feel very sorry for them. That is unfair to them. Like it is unfair for me to be compared to Mr Bachchan, it’s unfair when they are compared.”
He further added, “When an actor or an actress says I want to beat Shah Rukh Khan, I want to be Shah Rukh Khan -bring it on. That’s absolutely alright. Personally, I would say, don’t mess with this (while pointing at himself). I would tell my son this ‘Don’t mess with this. Don’t… Do your job. Be nice. Be Aryan Khan. Become Suhana Khan. Try and be whoever you want to be.”
