It's not easy to sing praises for your arch rival, but looks like Aamir Khan is different. In an interview to a daily, the actor admits he's a fan of and loves watching his movies. He, however, refused to compare himself with SRK.
When asked who's the biggest Khan right now, Aamir told the daily: "I am not able to judge myself. I find it very difficult to do that. I think, at this point of time, Salman's popularity is on a big high. I personally believe he is much more popular than I am."
"I am a fan of Salman Khan's. I love watching his movies. I must tell you a secret. I do not know how to whistle. But whenever Salman organises a trial of his film for me; which he always does; I carry a plastic whistle with me and I bring the house down with my ceetis. I don't know about Shah Rukh. I can't compare us," he was quoted by the daily.
This is not the first time Aamir has showered Salman with compliments. The Perfectionist Khan strongly feels that Sallu's Ek Tha Tiger would be a superhit.
"I have seen the promos and I really liked it a lot. I even messaged Kabir (director), Adi (Producer Aditya Chopra) and Salman that I liked the promo. I think it will be a superhit film," Aamir said.
