Is Shah Rukh more influential than Aamir?
Both are kings of the box office. While one knows how to charm the media and thus attain better publicity, the other knows how to market his product better. Both are tremendous actors and crowd pullers. However when theatre actor/filmmaker decided to make a film on a street girl and her chance encounter with superstar SRK, called ‘Shah Rukh Bola Khoobsurat Hai Tu’, Makrand chose SRK over Aamir as the inspiration of his film.
This comes as a bit of a surprise as Makrand’s first film happens to be Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak which had Aamir in the lead role.
“Aamir is a great actor but I look at him as a teacher, professor and perfectionist. Shah Rukh is more influential. The way he talks. He arrests you in his conversations. That connectivity is what I needed. That aura of a superstar and how his one line can make a whole lot of difference to a girl’s life”, said Makrand justifying his choice of Shah Rukh over Aamir.
Makrand’s independent cinema is ready and is slated to release on 19th November.
