Back From The Past: When Shah Rukh Khan insisted Aamir Khan To Purchase A Laptop
Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan have been friends since decades now, but their fallout had us shatter. The BFFs have been ruling the box-office numbers since the inception of their careers and we still love them. In between, there are endless stories of some sort of a tiff between the Khans, but it only takes one picture on social media to prove that all is well between Aamir Khan and SRK.
However, a video has resurfaced the internet wherein, Aamir Khan recounts an interesting anecdote about Shah Rukh Khan and his passion for technology. We all know that SRK is a tech-freak and back in ’90s when Aamir-Shah Rukh were the best buddies SRK insisted Aamir to purchase a laptop and while Aamir agreed, his story has us literally rolling on the floor laughing.
During the media interaction, Aamir Khan starts by saying that unlike SRK who loves technology, Aamir’s relationship with technology is not so great. Aamir say, “Technology and me are so far remote. I will tell you one joke. Shah Rukh Khan and I were in 1996, we were doing a show together in the USA and UK and Shah Rukh is very into technology, even at that time, he was up-to-date and all that. Woh time par ek naya computer aaya tha Toshiba and he told me ki mein le raha hu and it’s a latest computer. He said I think you should also take this computer, and I had never used a computer in my life toh I said mujhe kya zaroorat hai computer ki toh he said nahi, tu samaj nahi raha hai, ismein tu office daal, yeh daal wohdaal mereko buhut samjhaya usne toh I said jo tu lega apne liye, wahi tu mere liye lele.”
“Whatever you are buying, you will buy the best, buy it for me. So, poor chap, he went and bought two computers, laptop, laptop naya naya aaya tha woh time par. He got his laptop, he got my laptop and I came back to India,” added the actor.
Now, while SRK used his laptop, what Aamir did with the laptop will leave you in splits. “That laptop I did not open even one day and I m not joking. Uss laptop ko 5 saal ke baad mera ek nayamanager aaya toh usne bola that sir aapka ek laptop mein dekhta hu hamesha pada rehta hai, can I use it and I said please use it and he opened it and woh on hee nahi hua (laughs),” recounted Aamir.
Further on the actor continued, “And that is my connection with tchnology, if I have to watch a film or netflix then I have to tell someone like my kids or my manager someone has to put it on for me. Because that machine tends to know ki Aamir aya hai aur fir voh on he nahi hota hai machines don’t like me.”
