The director of two of the highest-grossing films in the history of cinema, Titanic and Avatar, Cameron shared the stage with the actor known as 'Mr Perfectionist' at the India Today Conclave 2010 and said that he was honoured to do so.
"I am honoured to be sharing the stage with Aamir Khan. He is on top of his game and it is his birthday tomorrow and he chose to attend the session with me foregoing his birthday, so I consider that a great honour," said the 55-year-old director.
When speaking about the meeting of Western filmdom with India's own Bollywod, Aamir said that he has not yet been a part of a Hollywood film, to which Cameron quickly replied, "We could fix that as soon as possible."
Aamir too expressed his admiration for the Terminator director saying that he came to listen to him and learn as much as possible.
The director and the actor have a lot in common, including the fact that they hold records for highest grossers.
While Cameron's 3-D sci-fi-epic Avatar broke global box-office records, Aamir starrer 3 Idiots is the highest grossing Bollywood film of all times.
The two were speaking on the topic 'Future of Cinema' at the conclave, where the audience included Cameron's wife actress Suzy Amis and Bollywood actors Ranbir Kapoor and Asin among others.
