Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood Aamir Khan, who always supports social cause and chose to be present at an event which is related to the development of the society and not in the Award Ceremonies unless its presented by the Government. This time, he played a friendly match with the world chess champion Viswanathan Anand on Friday at the launch of a State Chess tournament.

Aamir and Vishy were invited to inaugurate the 3rd edition of Maharashtra Chess League. The superstar who is fan of Chess master used this opportunity and challenged for a friendly match!

You know who won!!

Aamir was quoted saying "I am a huge fan of Anand. The opportunity to play with him is something I would never let go off. I want to thank Vishy (Viswanathan Anand) for being so nice to accept this game. I certainly do not deserve to play this game with him by any stretch of imagination."

He revealed that he played chess with many Bollywood stars and won several times! Shammi Kapoor, Paresh Rawal and Katrina Kaif are some names he spoke about. When media asked about did he ever play chess with Salman? He answered that he haven't, but if Salman plays Chess, he will with (Gesturing to his muscles)!
