They are only 45/46. Who retires when they are 45/46? LOL Plus who are we to say when they should retire or not? That's their decision na?
But I do agree that they need to start playing their age, or much closer to their age. Enough of pretending they're in their 20's..because they clearly cannot pass off for people in their 20's anymore. Late 30's to their 40's is much more acceptable. They can do romantic movies but there are such things as mature love stories also. And none of the Khans look amazingly good with any of the current actresses...if they don't look like their brother/jija, then they look like their uncles.

Aamir already seems to be taking a backseat with acting. check his movies in the recent years...RDB, Dhobi Ghaat, TZP, 3 I..he was sharing screen space with different actors! In 3 idiots he was barely there in the 2nd half! and now he does not seem to be acting in Delhi Belly!
I cannot imagine bollywood without the Khans, although each of them have done many non substantial movies! I definitely bow down to Amitabh Bachchan  he has made full use of his acting skills..been there done it! I hope we get to see the Khans as well  in the near future with tht career graph.

What about Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgan, Akshay Kumar, Anil Kapoor, etc.?  They are all close or a little older than the Khans!!!!  Why the double standard here?  They should retire to, right?!  All of them are romancing 20 year olds to!  WackoWackoWacko
Well said, for the first time I agree with you!! LOL but isn't it obvious... it seems like a classic cynics manufactured topic.. traget the person who is the most popular and get OTT, strange.. and huge reactions... just like your Katrina topics.. and topics on khans...

Isn't this high time SRK/Amir and Salman should either Retire or do the roles that suits them rather singing around the trees, kissing heroines ..or Punching villains' face at the age of 46 (I still count Amir as exception as he makes us believe whatever he does)...

most of us grown up from a toddler to a working professional/college going and they are still singing around the trees half of heir age .. forget about Heroines  Ermm? btw, heroines of their times - Raveena/Juhi/Madhuri retired long time back or atleast start taking the role that suits them, but these guys still doing the same stuff what they used to do say 20 years back.. Wacko .. either we are gender biased or these 3 are aeonians Ermm  I wonder what will they be doing when they reach Big Bs age? Geek .. btw, no one accepted big B as hero @ the age of 46 - ermmm poor Big B no botox that time Ouch and people criticized him for working with half of his age heroine Manisha Koirala (If I know correctly) 

Frankly, I dont understand the obsession of Viewers with all the 46+ actors playing lover boys?  Even Hritik is out from that kind of  stuff at the age ten years younger to them..  I would love to watch them doing some intense acting rather than running after Villains or dancing with Barbies.

i totally agree with you...when people want to see actresses retire at 30+yrs and start doing character roles ...then why not actors?

i want all these oldies not only khans to retire and give space to young ones...

Why should they retire?
As long as their talent stays intact, they can act till they drop dead.
Do people want Brad Pitt, Leonardo, Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler to retire? Wacko
BUT they need to start playing characters their own age.
I do think that Aamir and even Srk are shifting gears.
If you think about it, Leonardo, Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, Brad arent exactly very young guys either. Yet they're considered hotties and are still very much working.
But because hollywood writes such a variety of stories, they get roles that suit their age as well as still qualify as very much commercial hollywood material.
Its not the fault of the Khans that our writers are limited to love stories or hollywood rip offs.
Either way, I dont htink the Khans are going anywhere.
If anything, the Khans have just gotten more powerful. Look at the box office. The biggest of hits, the top grossers, the record breakers, are all movies with the Khans. If not the Khans, then either Akshay Kumar or Ajay Devgan, which is the same age bracket.
No Shahid Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, or Imran Khan will bring in those numbers. Its a clear sign that the people still love em. How can they retire?
