Mumbai, Mar 13 : Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan has said that he was happy to be called 'No. 2' of Indian cinema.
Aamir had recently remarked that he himself was the numerouno of Bollywood and Shahrukh was only number two.
To this, Shahrukh Khan's reply was: "Aamir is a dear friend and if he has said that I am the No. 2 actor, it is a great compliment to me".
"We have great regard for each other. He is 100 per cent number one," he said addressing a press conference for Indian Premier League here.
Shahrukh, whose recent flick 'Om Shanti Om' was pitted against Aamir's critically acclaimed 'Tare Zameen Par,' described the latter as "an intellectual and intelligent person".
"We are completely opposite. The only similarity is that we are both Khans," Shahrukh said, terming him as "a more instinctive and physical actor".
Aamir, while talking to reporters on Wednesday said, "Well what can I say. Shahrukh always likes to be in the second position".
When asked that if he had a chance to interview Shahrukh, what would be his first question, the actor said, "That's a tricky question. I would ask Shahrukh how does it feel to be second after Aamir?"
