Mumbai: Bollywood megastar Aamir Khan recently made a playful remark on Salman Khan. Riding high on ‘Peepli Live’s’ nomination at the Oscars along with the National Award for ‘3 Idiots’ and Aamir Khan – the ‘Perfectionist’ is making sure nobody takes away the limelight from him not even his colleague and good friend Salman Khan.
On being asked about Salman starrer ‘Dabangg’ doing great business with gigantic collections, Aamir said that the film is yet to break 3 Idiots’ record. He said, “I have seen Dabangg, and it’s a great film, people are liking it. But it has to break the record.”
Apparently, Aamir made it clear that ‘3 Idiots’ is still Bollywood`s biggest blockbuster and ‘Dabangg’ has a long way to go before it can break his film`s records.
The film ‘3 Idiots’ starring Aamir Khan was not only a huge success at the box office of 2009 but also created history with the maximum profit any Bollywood film has raked in so far.
The film grossed a profit of Rs 399 crore while ‘Dabangg’ is slowly inching towards similar figures. With Rs 300 crores in its kitty and it`s run continuing uninterrupted at the box office, Salman’s Dabangg is the only film that’s coming close to ‘3 Idiots’ figures.
