Shahrukh Khan's Rivalry with Mr Perfectionist

Shahrukh Khan is a newsmaker, be it the controversies or the spats with fellow actors, friends and even politicians, this Khan loves to be in the news and it seems that our scribes also love to write and capture every bit of his life.

The Aamir Khan-Shahrukh Khan rivalry is still one of the hottest topics to be discussed in the media. Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan in 2009 had created a stir by writing in his blog that his dog named Shahrukh licked his feet. Well, Shahrukh had wanted to give him a fitting reply but was held back by Gauri. Thereafter, in an interview with a leading newspaper he'd said: "Hum log hum umar hai — main, Salman, Aamir. Aur hum jab milte hain toh is se bhi ajeeb batein karte hai. (All three of us — Salman, Aamir and me are the same age and when we meet, we talk stranger stuff than this.) I have to take it with a sense of humour and I do have a sense of humour. If i can do it with others, then I should accept it."

This was not the first time when the actors were involved in a tug-of-war. Aamir had taken a potshot at Shahrukh again when the "Chak De" hero had claimed that he was No. 1 in the industry and declared himself to be the biggest brand other actors want to associate with. "You take the biggest brand in the country that is SRK and then use that platform to publicize yourself. I think Aamir rocks. The problem is that I cannot use another brand because there is no one bigger than me," SRK had said.

Aamir had retorted by saying "I remember him (Shah Rukh) saying that he was joking about calling himself No. 1. I find it very funny as I have never seen anyone proclaiming themselves as No. 1. Not Sachin Tendulkar, not Lata Mangeshkar, not Vishwanathan Anand. I am saying all this in a lighter vein too. But Shah Rukh's sense of humour suddenly disappears when it comes to me."  That same year Aamir's Ghajini had released and it was a huge hit at the Box Office and Aamir was named as the year's most powerful Bollywood personality by Filmfare. Therafter, Aamir had taken a jibe at Shahrukh and said: "I would like to ask Shahrukh, how it feels to be No.2" Shahrukh did not take it lightly and he said that he would speak to Aamir because he didn't say he was number one in arrogance but with a sense of humour and humility.

How Shahrukh Khan Got His Six Pack Abs

I have recieved several emails regarding six packs after the release of the song ‘dardedisco’ in which Shahrukh flaunts off a pretty lean body at the age of 40.

Many of the mails I recieved went like: I am doing 50 crunches (or ABS) a day and not seeing any results.


What is Shahrukh’s secret?

Now before we move on to getting a six pack, which I will make an entirely different post out of, let me just tell what is a six pack to begin with.

Six Packs are visible on people whose fat% is below 12 (10 for some). Why? Because fat which is around muscles is GONE. VANISHED. VROOM. WHOOSH. What remains is the visibility of the muscle.

I would like the skinny guys reading this to understand that they don’t neccesarily have a low bodyfat %.

*If I have a low bodyfat %, will my six pack show?*

Not neccesarily, I mean if the fat leaves there should also be a bit of muscle to flaunt.

Moving on to the King of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan.

From SRK Himself, we understand he maintained a very low fat, high protein diet and indulged in a lot of toning workouts and cardio.

As well as took up fat burners before flaunting the abs.

So what is his secret? NONE!

The reason it works for him more easily than it could for us is the wee bit of a difference of budget in millionaire him and us.

I mean come on, eating completely right, working out at extremely proper timings requires free time, equipment-nutrition budget and the comfort to lie down for endless hours once he is done working out.

So is it impossible for us to get a six pack? Definitely not but its much harder too, requires major lifestyle changes, a lot of effort and constant motivation

Who is a Bigger Brand - Shahrukh Khan Or Aamir Khan?

Call them arch rivals or call them good friends, the Shahrukh Khan vs Aamir Khan war has been fought time and over now since the past 14 years. Surprising there has been no clear winner because both SRK and Aamir Khan are hugely popular in Bollywood, with a sea of fan following.

Back in 1994, Shahrukh Khan's movie Ram Jaane released along with Aamir Khan's Akele Hum Akele Tum released on the same day. Believe it or not, both of them bombed. While SRK earned some pittance in the north, Aamir Khan's movie got some revenue in Mumbai and western parts of India. Since then both Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan have been very conscious about the movies they sign or produce. Viewers may note that both are friends but careful not to be subdued by one another. For instance, Rang De Basanti, Aamir Khan's iconic film had Shahrukh Khan initially in the role of R. Madhavan which he had declined. Shahrukh Khan had also asked Aamir Khan to be a part of Om Shanti Om, item number, but Aamir Khan had declined, because he was "busy".

Also Shahrukh Khan's loss has been Aamir Khan's gain and vice versa. Darr was supposed to star Aamir Khan who had doubts about doing a villain's role. The gutsy SRK did it anyway. Similarly Lagaan was offered to Shahrukh Khan who didnt think it would work and Aamir Khan ended up making history out of Lagaan.

Cut to 2007- 2008. Both the Khans, Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan size up for the competition in a big manner and pay attention to marketing their films in a sassy manner. Last year in 2007, Shahrukh Khan did his best to promote and market his film Om Shanti Om in the best manner possible, and the efforts paid off. Om Shanti Om became one of the biggest all time hits in Bollywood. Contrast to Aamir Khan who used low key marketing and let the product for itself in the form of his directoral debut Taare Zameen Par. But just as collections picked up, Aamir Khan made sure that Taare Zameen Par was reached out to everyone. He held charity screenings, marketed star kid Darsheel Safary in the best manner possible and did everything to ensure that Taare Zameen Par stayed in public memory for ever. Not surprisingly, considering Taare Zameen Par is one of the best movies of our times.

In 2008; ie now, Shahrukh Khan has gone for low key marketing. He did not market Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi aggressively. He stated that it was not the right time to promote or talk about his film considering the tragic 26/11 scenario. Though there was low key advertising and promotion, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is doing roaring business, proving that Brand Shahrukh is Brand Shahrukh. Well, Aamir Khan who adopted a low key strategy for TZP is now going all ends fired for Ghajini. He built an 8 packs physique an impressive one at that, following SRK's six packs wonder which he build for Om Shanti Om. Aamir Khan has come up with slick promotion tactics for Ghajini, be it print, television or online. He had promoted Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na well, but for Ghajini, he is leaving no stone unturned. Aamir Khan recently asked theatre staff of Big Cinemas and PVR, which are playing Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, to adopt the Ghajini hair cut. It is evident: you are watching Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi with the aura of Ghajini around you!

Asked what SRK thought of Aamir Khan's recent strategy for Ghajini, Shahrukh Khan claimed, "I think it is a good strategy. You take the biggest brand in the country that is SRK and then use that platform to publicise yourself. I think Aamir rocks. The problem is that I cannot use any another brand because there is no one bigger than me".

Shahrukh Khan - How He Became King Khan

Shahrukh Khan is perhaps the most loved Indian actor alive. From the most sought after actor to the most influential pop culture icon, the story of king khan is an inspiration to thousands of aspiring actors. Born on 02 November, 1965 in New Delhi to a middle class Muslim Family, Shahrukh never thought he would become one of the most popular men in the world. Both his parents migrated from Pakistan to India during the partition of Indian sub-continent in 1947.

Shahrukh Khan studied at St. Columba's school in New Delhi. He was not particularly good in studies but he was very much involved in extra curricular activities like sports and drama. Shahrukh Khan moved to Mumbai in 1991 to pursue a career in Bollywood. He had already done a few television series in Delhi and though he was not a household name at that time but he wasn't a nobody either. The same year even before sigining up a single movie in Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan married Gauri Chibber. Gauri Chibber belonged to a Hindu Family and neither she nor Shahrukh changed their religions. The wedding was performed as a traditional Hindu wedding.

Before landing in Mumbai, Shahrukh had already done his homework. He learned acting while working with famous theatre director Barry John's Theatre Action Group. After that in 1987 he debuted on television by appearing as commando Abhimanyu in t.v. series Fauji. Later he worked with Aziz Mirza for the tv series Circus. Shahrukh's bollywood debut movie was Deewana released in 1992. It was a box office hit and Shahrukh's career launched with a great success, however his next film Maya Memsaab didn't do that well on the box office. In 1992, Shahrukh Khan appeared in two very similar roles of an anti-hero in two different movies Darr and Bazigar. Darr was produced and directed by Yash Chopra one of the most successful Hindi film directors of all time. Both these movies did great business, not only these movies established Shahrukh Khan as the most popular new actors in Bollywood, they also had huge influence on the popular culture.

Looking at King Khan's career one would notice that Shahrukh worked with some directors more than others. He worked in several movies with Aziz Mirza, Yash Chopra and his son Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar, Farah Khan, etc. He has very good friendship with all these film makers and many claim that these friendships helped Shahrukh a lot in his career. His performances are often compared with fellow actors Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan. He has won Padma Shri one of the highest Indian civil awards for his career.

In the past decade Shah rukh Khan diversified his career a lot. He hosted TV show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati", appeared in advertisements, signed brand ambassador deals with world famous brands, produced big budget Bollywood movies, and bought a cricket team Kolkatta Knight Riders. He lives with his wife and two children in his house called "Mannat" which is situated in Bandra and is worth more than USD $27.5 Million.
