They have not fought at a birthday party yet, but the way Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan are sniping at each other, it’s clear that there is no love lost between them.
There was that time when Aamir caused a stir by revealing that his dog is called Shah Rukh. Now SRK has got back at Aamir with his own dog dig.
We asked SRK about a statement reported in the media: “Gauri gets upset when I crack jokes about naming my dog Aamir. She thinks why should I bring myself down by doing or saying such things? I understand that she doesn’t want me to lose my dignity, but sometimes I think it is absolutely necessary as people ask for it.”
When asked to elaborate, SRK told HT City, “Aamir had said it was a joke that his dog was named after me… and I said if it was a matter of [a] sense of humour, then my joke would have been that I also wanted to name my pets after Aamir, but my pets vehemently refused. My wife said people don’t understand your jokes, so please refrain from doing so... though I felt it was quite funny but I didn’t say it at that time. Nobody said anything about stooping low, etc. Stooping low would be a height joke.”
On a recent visit here, Shah Rukh had said, “I don’t take him [Aamir] on all the time. But yes, I don’t like some things he says... I’ll take it up with him.”
Earlier, Aamir had made fun of Shah Rukh by calling himself number one. To this, SRK replied, “I will confront Aamir and ask him why he said such a thing. I accept a lot of things, but I think this is not funny. When I say I am number one, I definitely don’t mean it in arrogance. I say it with a sense of humour and a sense of humility. But I guess it will take a lot for Aamir to understand that.”
Awaiting the next round.
