Superstar Aamir Khan, who has been ruling Bollywood along with Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan for over 20 years, says there is no secret formula behind their long and successful innings in the industry.
Aamir, who often draws comparison from the two Khans in terms of ranking and popularity, frankly acknowledged that Salman was the real number 1 star and more popular than him.
The 48-year-old actor, who became an overnight star with 1988 blockbuster 'Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak', agreed that the audience in India is star-obsessed but insisted same is not the case with the industry.
"I don't think the industry is star obsessed. It is the audience who is star obsessed and it is not a bad thing at all. As an audience, I am also star obsessed. I am a big fan of Amitabh Bachchan, Dilip Kumar, Waheeda Rehman, Shammi Kapoor. I have been star struck myself," Aamir said in an interview here.
"I think an entertainer has a great role to play in the society and he is often underestimated. I don't think any of us - Salman, Shah Rukh and me - know the secret to our longevity. I wish we knew it."
The 'Raja Hindustani' actor considers Shah Rukh Khan as a seasoned actor, who always brings a smile on viewers' faces.
"I think Shah Rukh is very well loved and fine actor. He is extremely charming and I love to see him on screen. It always brings a smile on your face when you see him," Aamir said.
"I have liked him in films such as 'Dilwale Dhulaniya Le Jayenge', 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'. I have heard good things about his work in 'Chak De' but I haven't seen it. It is one of the films that I want to watch. There are several other films of Shah Rukh that I have liked," he added.
