Difference between Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan

Bollywood is India’s counterpart to America’s tinsel town and boasts of several actors and actresses who have contributed so much change and dynamism into the landscape of India’s TV and film industry. Although Bollywood may not be as huge as Hollywood, it is extremely famous and well acclaimed all over the globe for its unique productions and manpower, consisting of hardworking talents, producers and directors.

Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan are two of India’s most celebrated figures in the field of TV and cinema. They are not only recognized for their acting, but are also known to be film producers in the country. Let us take a little peek into their lives and see why they are two of the most successful actors in Bollywood.

Aamir Khan
Shahrukh Khan

Background

Aamir Khan was born on March 14, 1965 in Mumbai, India. It was quite predictable that a flourishing career in cinema was a possibility for the young Aamir, as entertaining ran in his family: his father and uncle were both film producers, the latter also dabbling in acting and directing. When Aamir was still quite young, Nasir Hussain—his uncle—gave him his very first taste of acting by starring him in a movie in 1973.

Shahrukh Khan was born in November 2, 1965 in New Delhi, India. His family’s background was geared towards a different direction, having an activist father and a mother coming from a politically involved family. From the beginning he was quite a promising student; he took economics courses in college, graduated with honors and even decided to take up a Masters in the field of Mass Communication.

Careers Highlights

Although Aamir Khan was a child actor in one of his uncle’s films, he professionally began his acting career in 1984 in a film titled ‘Holi’. ‘Lagaan’, a 2001 film he starred in, happened to be one of the most critically acclaimed films locally and internationally—it was nominated during the 74th Academy Awards under the category of Best Foreign Language Film. Though it did not win, it shed brighter light to the movie industry of India and was given several awards in India and earned Aamir Khan his second Filmfare Best Actor award. So far, he has starred in over forty films, produced six and directed three.

Shahrukh Khan took up acting at Theatre Action Group in Delhi. He started with small roles in television before moving up to starring in his debut film ‘Deewana’ in 1992. During the early 1990s he gained recognition for starring in quite villainous and unexpectedly violent roles, one of which earned him his first Filmfare Best Actor award. A documentary titled ‘The Inner and Outer World’ of Shahrukh Khan was made by producer Nasreen Kabir in the year 2005, giving Shahrukh fans a more intimate view of his life as an actor and family man.

Achievements

Aside from accomplishments in the field of acting, producing and directing, Aamir Khan is also the owner of Aamir Khan Productions, a Mumbai-based film production and distribution company.

Shahrukh Khan has molded himself quite well, earning thirteen Filmfare awards. He has also founded two production companies and has also dabbled recently into television hosting.

Summary

  • Both actors are highly acclaimed in the field of acting, producing and directing.
  • Both actors are Filmfare awardees.
  • Both actors have created their own production companies and have experience in other fields of the film industry in India.

WOW that's a tough one!!!

Hmmm I gotta say Aamir's movies are more society awareness oriented whereas, SRK is just a rainbow of characters.

As much as it pains me to pick between the two, I have to say honestly, SRK's the king! SOrry!! Though Aamir's really great too

Srk is best

SRK is always repeating himself in his films ..always romance is so boring. .while Amir Khan is the most versatile actor ever he is the only actor who rise bollywood to Hollywood level in whole bollywood history

Tu sachcha chutiya hai. Badhiya paidaish hoti teri toh tu itna chutiya na hota shayad, par koi baat nahi, ismein teri kya galti hai.

Amir Khan is better than SRK in all aspects if we compare between the two always Aamir win over SRK:-

In Flops ; Aamir only has 8 flops while SRK has around 25 flops loooool

amir is over-confident bloody son of a ****, SHAH RUKH IS THE ONE AND ONLY KING KHAN.

The word "King" was used by Shahrukh by himself then the media started calling him "King" because medias need masala that shahrukh gave them. Shahrukh has more than 60 films while Amir has around 40. If you campare this and the time gap that Amir takes,makes him far ahead of Shahrukh. Shahrukh plays with media while Amir does not care. He does not go to receive his awasrds even He wins.Shahrukh does films like "Devdas" and "Don" which were already superhits in the past and both Dilip Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan got a Best Actor award respectively, so it is not a surprise that he did the same and in one them received best actor award. Shahrukh does very less challenging roles. But Amir is more experimental and great and a real superstar.

Get ur fact corrected dear...The word "King" was first used by none other than Big B for SRK, on which ur loser Amir called that "If he is a King m the Ace(TOI)" Now u cn assess the character of Amir..n Amir does not play with media bcoz he doesn't hv the capability to do that..Yes Amir does not go to receive his award bcoz everytime SRK beats him..check the data (n if u loser can not find request me to send it to u)... Amir can not even touch SRK's acting in DDLJ, Devdas, Chak de n multiple other movies..SRK has world's (plz notice) biggest fan following beating even Tom cruise & Brad Pitt (Times Magazine)..Ab batao bhai where does Amir comes in picture..he is jst another actor n SRK "The King"

Only Dilip Kumar won the no of filmfare awards (best Actor) equal to SRK 4. Five times SRK beats Amir in the race of best actor (Filfare) 5. Biggest fan following in the world beating Tom Cruise n Brad Pitt(Times Magazine)Amir ko koi jaanta bhi nhi 6. Statues in Madam tassaude, London (Only actor other than Big B) 7. Only actor having comparison with Big B (none other actors got this much appreciation) 8. Most varsatile actor (Darr, Anjaam, Koyla, Shakti, DDLJ, Devdas, Chak de, Mohhabatein, Josh n many more)... n countless features which Amir even can not touch.

1) Aamir and srk has won padma shri award which is 4th biggest award in our country. But Aamir has also won Padma Bhushan award which is 3rd biggest award in our country. This makes AAmir up than SRK according to civilian honour.

2) If you look at Oscar nominations Aamir and his productions has more movies nominated than Srk movies nominated. This makes Aamir up than Srk at international level.

3) Aamir has done acting in movies of al d types, where as srk dont have guts to do that. He only can do romantic movie (RAHUL name in majority of movies hahahahaha)

4) When it come in TV shows we al know how badly SRK's "koun bnegaa crorepati" was fucked by Sallu's "Dus ka dum".

RANKING ACTORS KI AAISI HAI:

1) Aamir

2) Salman

3) Srk

SRK is the one who is very jealous from the other actors especially from khans because he lack the handsame look ..no comparison with the handsame Amir and the fagot SRK. .even this jealous SRK always want to make fun of the other khans infront of media and public in many occasions that is enough proof that makes Amir and Salman much bigger than SRK

youseff bhai aaraam se.who is copycat we all know.shahrukh is just the tail of amitabh.whatever big b does so called king khan does the same.take for example in om shanti om he brought all actors together in a song but mind you that thing was copied from amitabh's movie naseeb.then amitabh made abcl shahrukh made red chillies.big b hosted kbc, shahrukh did the same.big b acted in 1978 don.its boring remake starred shahrukh.even at 67 amitji can act way better than shahrukh who is 23 years younger tah him.and talking of amir his films are loved by all.all gives some messages.remember overseas audience loves shahrukh but amir khan's films are loved by hollywood[oscars] lagaan,taare zamee..... amir khan can do action-ghajini. he can do comedy-3 idiots.he can do romantic roles-raja hindustani.shahrukh is not a complete package.amir rockssssssssssss.

aamir is the best....shahrukh just buy awards

1000 percent right. thats why nowadays most of the Indian Film stars are critisizing the Awards, specially the Filmfare. Shah rukh buys them. He wants to show only he is great others are nothing. but the kind of shahrukh khan does not about general public's understanding capabilities. they know what is wrong and what is right.

You are right Jackie. I want add here some more facts. "Bazigar" was a nearly remake of "Trishul", "Devdas" all know about it. its always of Dilip Kumar. Shah rukh did the same. "Don" belongs to Amitabh. "Om Shanti Om" is a remake of superhit, a Rishi Kapoor starrer, "Karz". Problem with shah rukh is he does all those films that already rocked the screen before. So he wants to play secured game always. He does everything to get awards, specially Filmfare awards. He wants to show that only he is the star that tops all which is not true. If you look the National Awards then you know where his position actually is.If you campare the Films he did and Amir khan's film even Hrithik Roshan and compare the ratio between the films and awards he is very bottom position.

To answer you i want you to compare ghajini against Baajigar and Don, 3 idiots against yes boss and raja hindustani aginst several such as kuch kuch hota hai, ddlj, devdas etc. You will see more action of shahrukh in Ra-1 and Don 2 Now you imagine shahrukh's role of devdas by Amir... impossible, Similarly, director even can't think of Amir for the role in Darr, Anjaam, my name is khan and Devdas. But dont forget Three idiot and Ghajini was at first offered to Shahrukh. Now its very clear who is genius.

my friend you imagine role of srk in films of amir. among the 17 all time blockbusters, salman and amir lead with 3 films each.maine pyar kiya, hum aapke hain kaun, dabanng, 3 idiots, ghajini, raja hindustani all would have been flops if srk was starred. srk only can cry and overact like girls. ki...ki.....ki......ki..........kira...n.

ha ha ha...losers alwaz crib n cry...jo Salman ko actor keh de usse bada wala to ho hi nhi sakta ha ha ha

srk did not act in ghajini and 3 idiots bcoz he knew that he would not be able to act perfectly as aamir...srk looks like 50 years old so how can he play the role of a 23 years old boy....and in ghajini he would not have gud body like aamir had.....although aamir is older than him yet he look younger...that is what aamir is...aamir is ace khan and u can say srk is king khan but rember that king khan can be changed but ace khan is always one.... never can be changed
