Most Smarter Producer: Aamir Khan or Shahrukh Khan?: Media has pitted Bollywood actors Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan loads of times against each other. While some say that the debate as to who is greater is futile, there is nothing more delightful to a movie buff than comparisons.
Just like cricket lovers love to have their say on the issue- who, between Tendulkar and Bradman, is a greater batsman; similarly, the comparison between Aamir and Shahrukh is a fantasy for the film lovers.
If we talk of Aamir and SRK as producers, then one can say that Aamir has done what the King Khan has failed to do. Aamir has smartly carried out his films from the whirlpool of controversies and accorded them huge publicities which have lured the audience to the theatres.
Be it ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’ or the non-starry ‘Peepli Live’ or the hearty ‘Taare Zameen Par’, there has been no dearth on his part. And no complaints! Viewers have relished what he has offered.
In fact, recently, Hindustan Kanojia Association objected to his naming his upcoming film ‘Dhobi Ghat’. But Aamir instead of bowing down to their stupid demands went ahead and won a court case. The court found nothing objectionable or insulting in the name ‘Dhobi Ghat’.
Unfortunately, Shahrukh had to scissor out the word ‘Barber’ from his film ‘Billu Barber’ which later released under the stripped name of mere ‘Billu.’ Perhaps, SRK needs to take a leaf or two out of Aamir’s books when it comes to stringent movie production.
