I like SRK =)
but his recent films SUCK =(
DDLJ KKHH and stuff were awesome!
I mean he looks good and all and seems like a very nice person...but every film Aamir has done has always been SUPERHIT!
It's just Aamir's opinion.
I still like them both

I don't know if it's jealousy or what but seriously what does AK want to prove? That he's the King Khan? Sorry  I have to disagree.  I have not been the greatest fan of SRK although now I do like him a lot more than any of the other Khans, but the truth is the truth.  I am not denying that AK is a good actor but SRK is the best actor I have seen around in Bollywood in a while.  He puts his heart and soul into his characters and it's apparent when you watch his movies.  I loved him in RNBDJ and his DDLJ has completed 700 weeks in theatre.  So let's hear AK's comments on that..... Which one of his movies has done that?
 
Again, I have nothing against AK but I do like SRK a lot more than him.  I don't think that AK wanted to attack SRK.  If you read the whole article it's not as bad as it sounds. 
 
And AK has his own opinion.  So I don't have any problem with that.  If he thinks SRK is not the King Khan then that's his problem and his opinion and if a million other people think that SRK is the King Khan then it's their problem and their opinion.  In my case, I respect both.
 
And as far as SRK's fights with other actors like Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan are concerned, then a lot of it is media hype.  I mean seriously who really has time to go around and fight with every other person.  And as far as Salman is concerned, he fights with so many other people as well so if SRK is also on his list - big deal!
 
Long and short of it is that any such statements from AK or anyone don't lessen SRK's popularity and his worth.  He is one of the best actor and that's not shown only through the awards he has been given but also with the fact that he is the MOST popular person on earth even more popular than Brad and Tom Cruise.

You're calling youor own opinion as the truth. Tongue And btw, every actor puts his heart and soul in his work. No one joins the industry to fail. Some of them may not be so good at acting but all of them do try their hardest. So,if you please can you name one actor who just does films for the sake of it and doesn't really care whether it succeeds or not.
 
I loved him in RNBDJ and his DDLJ has completed 700 weeks in theatre.  So let's hear AK's comments on that..... Which one of his movies has done that?
 
First of all there are many who thought RNBDJ was a crap movie. Secondly, let's not confuse between popularity and quality. Obviously DDLJ had a good performance from SRK - Kajol, but the film became popular more because of the entertainment factor provided by the whole script.
If you measure by that 700 weeks yeardstick then all movies have to be declared as crap compared to DDLJ. Do you really think that's the scenario??
 
Again, I have nothing against AK but I do like SRK a lot more than him.  I don't think that AK wanted to attack SRK.  If you read the whole article it's not as bad as it sounds.
 
Well reporters will always spice things up, that's what they get paid for. So, headlines doesn't represent even half the truth. 
 
And AK has his own opinion.  So I don't have any problem with that.  If he thinks SRK is not the King Khan then that's his problem and his opinion and if a million other people think that SRK is the King Khan then it's their problem and their opinion.  In my case, I respect both.
 
That makes sense.
 
And as far as SRK's fights with other actors like Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan are concerned, then a lot of it is media hype.  I mean seriously who really has time to go around and fight with every other person.  And as far as Salman is concerned, he fights with so many other people as well so if SRK is also on his list - big deal!
 
Ohh... actually people have a very short memory. They see and comment on things in front of them. A year down the line if SRK retaliates, everyone will be talking about how SRK is attacking Aamir Khan. Fact is SRK has done it on a no. of occassions and most of the times unprovoked. One I remember is around 2000 - 01, when Hrithik Roshan was just beginning to become popular. SRK commented something to the effect of that he has seen a lot of one film wonder or something (I don't remember the exact quote). Now, what did HR do to him??
 
Long and short of it is that any such statements from AK or anyone don't lessen SRK's popularity and his worth.  He is one of the best actor and that's not shown only through the awards he has been given but also with the fact that he is the MOST popular person on earth even more popular than Brad and Tom Cruise.
 
Obama is currently very popular in US. So, he is the greatest human being America ever produced. Osama is very popular among terrorists, so he is the best person in the world. Himesh Reshammiya is very popular, so he is the best singer at the moment. Rajneekanth is very popular in South India and Japan, so he is the best actor.
SRK is a great performer no doubt but his popularity is not an indication of anything except for the fact that he knows how to charm his audience and makes lots of money for that.

Well I saw this post and couldnt help but comment. I think Amir was wrong when in ranting about him but you know what..he is right. Who even gave Shahrukh Khan the title as King Khan. He just started to refer to himself as that..and I feel thats a bit conceded.

Okay , I'm a HUGE SRK fan , and at the same time , Aamir Khan is  my second most favourite actor....so its obvious I'm slightly partial towards SRK but I'll *try* to look at the thing from an impartial POV . TRY , I said ; )

Well , I think BOTH of them should stop doing this . Just as Aamir Khan takes digs as SRK , SRK does the same . I can cite numerous examples of this , such as :

AK [ on his blog] : "I'm sitting in my bungalow in Panchgani , and Shah Rukh is licking my feet "

SRK [ in a Hindustan Times interview ] : "I would have named my pets after Aamir too , but they vehemently refused "

Now WHAT do you mean by this kind of exchange ???Dead
---------------

What I mean is , this sort of public bashing through the media is unbecoming to both . I'm not getting into the fact about who's a better actor than whom , I think Aamir Khan is the better actor by far , but if I have to choose between them as human beings , I'll choose SRK any day .But thats purely my opinion .

OK , I went off-track , but I do think BOTH of them should stop this public mud slinging . For heavens , you two are both 40+ , are amongst the most senior actors in B'wood today - experience,films,exposure,endorsements,accolades,fans- you name it , the two are on an equal level ! There are millions of youngsters all over the world and in India of course who idolise both of you , so why would you be bent on ruining your images ? I thought they were friends , even if they arent NOW , there's no need to take it public .

So , the bottom line for me : Watch BOTH of them in their movies and ENJOY their movies too : ) On a personal level , their media war doesnt affect us : D As long as they keep making movies , it ought to be all right for us = ) = )

PS - I ALSO think this thing has been stretched toooo far . If we , as their fans , stop paying attention to it , the media will [hopefully] stop bouncing this around as well . And I earnestly hope that that will be the end of this whole Khan vs Khan thing .

 I think both of them do this , and it is very very common in the film industry . Aamir is an intense actor and SRK , a very succesful entertainer , and there may be varied subjective opinions about who is the better one , but where they are on par is the petty jealousy platform . Both of them are the types who like to take digs at others with a sophisticated smile and while doing so , they betray their petty competitiveness and insecurities . As far as the King khan thing is concerned , one cannot really blame SRK for crowning himself . The media does have a hand in it . Media often coins such special phrases for certain actors ......The Big B for Amitabh , The First Family of Filmdom for the Kapoors , Bollywood for the Hindi Film industry , The Little Nymphet for Padmini Kolhapure [ long time Back ] ........the media purposefully does this . Hits come and go . Sometimes , SRK gives a smashing hit in league with Karan Johar , sometimes AAmir gives one like GHajni . Sometimes Hrithik or Akshay race ahead one particular year , while both SRK and Aamir do plainly okay .  SRK has often , to his credit , admitted in many interviews that he is an entertainer . And I must say , he does this job pretty well . Aamir , more in the Dilip Kumar category , focuses on one film or two a year and is definetely not just an entertainer but more in the mould of an intense actor . Being an entertainer is diffrent and being an intense actor is diffrent . In this sense , there really can be no comparison between the two . Aamir has made a mould of his own for himself with films like Lagaan , taare zameen par etc and will never be looked at as an entertainer even if he says so  now as his intensity has come across and made its mark on the public , who perk up whenever an Aamir khan movie is being released and wonder what he will be delivering next ? This is the public's special tribute to him as an intense actor . The same public flock to SRK's shows and movies and come back highly entertained with the dances , the candy floss dramas , and say paisa vasool .

 So  why this insecurity and why these cheap digs ? Coz honestly , they do not befit both of them . What reason do they have to be insecure of each other ? They have both made a place for themselves in the film industry that cannot be usurped by the dozens of Friday arrivals that pour in today compared to yesteryears .

Just look at OM shanti Om . It is an outright common movie , made succesful by a variety of factors like Shahrukh's own pull , rigorous publicity campaigns , that song with many film actors roped in specially to draw the audiences ,......is there anything really very great about that movie ? It ran very well , but is it that great ?

Same about Ghajni . The very talented Asin , the hype that it was a big hit in the South , Aamir's extremely intense perfomance , careful publicity ..........Ghajni became a hit , but was the script that great ? There were many loopholes in the fim , the events were not shown in a convincing way , the drama could have definetely been intensified much more , and the main villain , Ghajni , was an ordinary actor who played a sidekick to villains in movies and not at all the Gabbar Singh kinda villain who pulled in crowds coz of his sheer persona  like Amjad did in Sholay .I mean c'mon , the film was named after the villain Ghajni , the least they cud have done was taken sumone new who wud have aroused our curiosity . If not new , sumone with a standing . The actual villain is rather a damp squib for a movie to be named after it....yet it became a super hit coz of Aamir's acting and the efforts he put on his body building . Asin helped , of course . So both SRK and Aamir r in the same boat . Very succesful , very lucky , and yes , unecessarily insecure .
