Aamir Khan emerges more powerful than Shah Rukh Khan
Mumbai: He believes in living life on his own terms. He doesn’t attend award functions. He doesn’t believe in partying and mixing business and pleasure. He is one-of-his-kind. He is Aamir Khan! According to reports, the unconventional actor has beaten them all, including the seemingly-invincible Shah Rukh Khan, to reclaim the top-spot in the Filmfare Power List.
Aamir Khan’s last three films – ‘Taare Zameen Par’, ‘Ghajini’ and ‘3 Idiots’ have earned around Rs 825 crore, enabling him to claim the No 1 position on the Filmfare Power List once again. His December 2009 release, ‘3 Idiots’ grossed over Rs 375 crore.
On the other hand, rival SRK is stationed at the No 2 slot for the third time. The actor has been sort of inactive but it didn’t alter Shah Rukh’s overall standing in the list.
Rajkumar Hirani has made it into the top slot at No 3 position with his two Munnabhai films and ‘3 Idiots’. Music maestro AR Rahman, who brought India two Oscars, is at No 4 slot from his previous high of No 8 in the 2008 Power List.
Karan Johar’s retained his No 5 position owing to Dharma Productions, which got accolades for the coming-of-age ‘Wake Up Sid’.
Yash Raj Films slipped to No 6 from their previous position of No 3 and Aamir Khan’s production made it to the No 7 slot.
Kareena Kapoor has defeated Katrina Kaif in the list to make it to the No 8 slot.
Hrithik Roshan stayed steady at the No 9 slot while Katrina is at No 10. The Bachchans are missing from the list a second time over.
