Shahrukh Khan vs Salman Khan vs Aamir Khan
This is one of the hottest topics amongst Indian Movie lovers all over the world. I will try to summarize skills and capabilities of each of them, according to a realistic point of view. So let’s start the comparison:
Shahrukh khan (King Khan) is more of a romantic – charming type of actor, who could take his audience into dreams and make them feel like they are in another world for a moment. He has shown great skills and ability in acting, especially in Romantic acting like in DDLG, Devdas and KKHH. He has also shown some great natural acting ability in movies like Swades and Chak de India. His acting as a mental ill individual in the movie; My name is Khan was just out of this world!
Aamir Khan is more of a natural actor, compared to SRK. He has shown great versatility in acting and has made different characters look perfect on the screen. His acting in Lagaan, Dil chahta hay, Rang de basanti and 3 Idiots has been praised by many bollywood movie lovers.
Salman Khan is more known for his cute looks and a perfect body then acting ability but he has also provided some good on screen results. His acting in movies like May nay pyaar kya, Tere naam and Wanted have shown some great embarks. He has also improved as an actor as his career is passing by.
The Winners are both Shahrukh and Aamir in this category!
Shahrukh Khan has been given nick names like King Khan, Badshah of bollywood, Kind of bollywood. This only proves one point; he is the most popular bollywood actor around the world. This is not just shown by the words but also by the stats. If you look at the top ten international movie stats for Indian Cinema, you’ll see that seven out of the ten have been Shahrukh Khan’s movies. He is also very popular in India as well. His popularity has peaked up so much that two of the worlds largest museums have his statues.
Salman Khan has been a very popular actor because of his looks and body. He has been nick named, “Rock Star” off late, just for his attitude and living style. He is a party lover and likes to get it on with the top actresses of bollywood. Another aspect of his popularity comes from his scandals and love affairs. He has had relationships with the most gorgeous beauties of bollywood; Ashwerya Roy and Katreena Kaif (currently with her).
Aamir khan has picked up on his popularity with his latest movies; 3 Idiots and Gajini. But he is still behind SRK when it comes to international market. He is one of the most popular stars in India though.
The Winner is this category is Obviously Shahrukh Khan!

- 2 Indian Telly awards.
Well the list says it all, the Winner in this category is obviously again Shahrukh Khan!
I think I have reached to a point where I can easily state that Shahrukh khan is a better entertainer overall. Aamir khan is obviously giving him some heat and battle but SRK has always come above and will always come above. Aamir Khan is a great actor but SRK is a Great actor, a great entertainer, a great influencer, a great ideal and a great style Icon. By style I mean to refer to his acting style. It is the acting style which has captured millions of heart from the start of bollywood with Sir. Dilip Kumar and Mr. Bachan. Why were they so successful? There were other very good actors in their time as well but they were above them all, why? Because of their acting style; they had a tremendous and charming acting style which led them to become idols and made them King of hearts and this is what’s true with Shahrukh Khan as well!
So Shahrukh Khan is the Real King Khan!
