Mumbai: Bollywood’s perfectionist Aamir Khan, whose debut TV show commenced today is pretty excited and nervous about the same.
With Aamir’s arrival into the world of small screen, speculations were rife that other Bollywood biggies were being roped in by rival channels to beat the star’s show.
Reportedly, Salman was offered a mammoth fee to host a TV show that would be pitted against Aamir’s ‘Satyamev Jayate’. But the ‘Dabangg’ superstar chose friend Aamir over the tempting fee and declined the lucrative offer.
Aamir too had recently expressed his equation with Salman.
Talking to DNA, Aamir said, “Salman is a very dear friend, and we do catch up, but not to discuss people. Nor are we a bunch of schoolers to team up against anyone. My friendship with Salman has nothing to do with my equation with Shah Rukh or his equation with Salman. I have a lot of respect for Shah Rukh.”
Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman are the three biggest names of Bollywood and it seems their success stories have always been intertwined with their professional and personal rivalries.
Explaining how he does not intend to break anyone’s record, Aamir said, “Why only them, there’ve been so many other actors on TV. But, you know, I am really not looking at breaking anyone’s record. That’s not my or my show’s motive.”
Hmmm…well said Aamir.
