|The media may choose to call it a cold war, but Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan have always maintained that the verbal potshots they frequently exchange through media is nothing more than good natured banter.
Now, Aamir snubbed SRK again on Sunday while speaking to a TV reporter at the Mumbai airport after his return from France. When the reporter asked Aamir if he too, like SRK, was detained for questioning at any major airport, Aamir replied in jest: “No one checks me as I am an idiot.”
Aamir has often self-effacingly been calling himself an idiot ever since he began working in Rajkumar Hirani’s film 3 Idiots.
But when the reporter asked about SRK’s detention, Aamir unleashed a potshot by saying that SRK’s problem is that he’s “too intelligent”, obviously alluding that SRK thought himself too clever and therefore overreacted after being detained by immigration authorities in the US.
Though Aamir’s remark is tongue-in-cheek, we are waiting for SRK’s reaction to it.
Meanwhile, reports have it that filmmaker Danny Boyle is thinking of casting Aamir and SRK together for this next film which, however, will be directed by Anurag Kashyap.
Wonder what will happen when these two bantering Khans come together on the big screen for the first time!
