The Reigning Khan of Bollywood- Aamir Khan recently appeared on the show called 'Talk Asia' for CNN with host Anjali Rao in front of a live audience. The actor who of late has been very media-savvy spoke at length on topics as diverse as his on-going war of words with Shah Rukh Khan to the terror attacks that devastated Mumbai on 26/11 last year.
Post the stupendous success of his last film 'Ghajini', Aamir is being termed as the new 'King Khan' of Bollywood. Commenting on this, the actor said, "I had absolutely no intention of kicking Shah Rukh off his pedestal. Though I have to say, I don't think, he ever was on it. In my opinion, the actor who I really look up to is Mr. Amitabh Bachchan. He is someone who's work I really liked, a fantastic actor & the kind of stardom Mr. Bachchan has seen, none of us can ever hope to see."
He also shared what he felt about 'Ghajini' breaking all kinds of records and emerging as the highest grossing Bollywood film of all time. "You can never really tell how a film is going to perform until you see the film with the audience. For me what is important is that when I see the film once it is ready, has it turned out the way we wanted it to? If we have done that, then that makes me feel happy."
The actor also expressed his views on the much talked about Oscar winning film 'Slumdog Millionaire'. "I thought the movie was well intended. It was a very sincere attempt, but it didn't touch me personally, and I suspect its because, I'm not used to watching Indians speak English, all these slum kids talking in English... it's strange."
