Aamir, Shahrukh and Salman...The Khan Brigade
Hindi movie's 3 famous icons :
The latest Hindi movie released, " 3 Idiots" has not only become a box office hit but also brought fame to Aamir Khan. Now the so called Badshah Khan, Shahrukh will surely feel the heat. And Salman Khan at the other end might have become sleepless hearing the big news.
Shahrukh, after his left shoulder surgery has not made something noteworthy in the movies, recently. Where as Amir had already strengthened by his movies like Taare Zameen Par and Ghajini. Both these brought him great reputation in the Bollywood arena.
Big hit that has brought fame to Aamir
The Raj Kumar Hirani directed movie, 3 Idiots has already grossed Rs. 240 Crores. So, it became the most successful movie in the history of Bollywood. This movie has beaten the records of the previous movie Ghajini which was also starred by Aamir. Ghajini had already made him a numero uno actor in the Hindi film industry.
Aamir's brand value can be well estimated from the fact that he has shown a great deal of maturity in this movie with his strange disappearing act. 3 Idiots had the widest release for a Bollywood movie. It had released simultaneously in 40 countries.
The Aamir Khan's movies have managed to win over the west. An unconquered territory so far held strongly by Karan Johar and Shahrukh Khan. The success of 3 Idiots' success opens a new chapter in the clash of the Titans.
Amir vs Shahrukh, clash of the Titans :
The cold vibes between Aamir and SRK has been witnessed by people many a times and both kept on cracking comments and jokes at each other whenever they got a chance.
King Khan Shahrukh for years has been facing the threat from this Aamir, so called 'Perfectionist Khan.' He had never faced such a stiff competiton in his career time from any of the actors in Bollywood. But now he feels the heat because of Aamir's great hits. Now Shahrukh is waiting anxiuosly to see his new movie release My Name Is Khan. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi was of course going great guns until the release of Aamir's Ghajini. But the release of Ghajini wiped off all the romantic mood that was created around by Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
What next ?
Whatever it may be then, but currently, Amir Khan's pallada is bhari ( his side of balance has become heavier) because of the super hit movies given by him. Shahrukh Khan has to strive hard to maintain the top position in the Hindi film industry with some special acting and unique movies.
At the other end, the muscle man Salman Khan has seen his career having lots of crest and troughs. He is the favourite and a great god to his cheering fans. Also, when it comes to fan following he might well beat both the other two Khans, Shahrukh and Aamir. After seeing a great deal of ups and downs, recently Salman Khan is all geared up for his new movie Veer. This high budget period drama might be a 'do or die' movie for the Bollywood icon.
He has become a part of charity events and also distributed autographed audio CDs to promote the movie Veer. He is struggling hard to get to the top. Katrina will be another asset to show case her greatness in this particular movie. People might be in the feel of a double role performed by Katrina here. Because Katrina's look alike Zarine Khan makes her debut in this movie. Salman himself did some stunts for this movie.
Let's wait and see how the new movies will work for both these Khans.
