Mumbai, Mar 13 (UNI) Reacting to fellow actor Aamir Khan's tongue-in-cheek dig, labelling him as number two, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan said with his whacky humourous style that it was a great compliment for him.
On being asked to react to Aamir's widely-reported remark during a function yesterday that if he were to ask Shah Rukh Khan a question, he would ask as to how it feels to be number two, Shah Rukh said, ''Aamir is a dear friend and we respect each other's sense of humour. Even if he has said that seriously and thought that I am second to him, it's a great compliment to me.'' He said that his wife is a great Aamir fan and has warned him against saying anything funny about Aamir. ''Aamir and I are completely opposite persons. He is an intelligent, intellectual person whereas I am more of an instinctive man. I would love to share screen space with him,'' Shah Rukh said.
King Khan said that the only thing common between them is that they share the same surname ''Khan''. He then said, ''I said I love K-K-K-K-K-Kiran for a film and Aamir loves K-K-K-K-K-Kiran in his real life.'' Shah Rukh even matched TV host and anchor Sajid Khan's witty style on stage. Sajid said that he wanted to be in the Kolkata team and wanted to know from Shah Rukh why he was not taken in. The actor replied, ''You cannot be part of Kolkata Knightriders because the motto of the team is not just excellence in life. The first tenets of being a member is that you need to be honest with integrity and a good person.'' To which Sajid said, ''But I am member of the film industry.'' Shah Rukh said, ''In that case, both of us are not fit to be part of the playing team. So I am going to be the 12th man serving water and drinks.'' UNI MR NM AG RL RS1645
