The three khans—Aamir, Salman and Shahrukh started their career almost at the same period. Where, the latter came without any solid filmi background relying on his passion for acting, and of course a generally well-to-do family.

The three khans are on their fifties. They still look young, energetic, dynamic and fit like they’re twenty years back. Youngsters like Ranbir Kapoor, Ranvir Singh, Varun Dhawan, Tiger Shroff and others still look pale in terms of Box-office records, screen presence, and popularity.

Recently, the perfectionist, Aamir Khan belted out two Box-office biggies—‘Dhoom 3’ and ‘PK’ after the huge success of ‘3 Idiots’! Dhoom 3 raked in moolahs worth Rs. 536 crore worldwide.

Another Aamir gem ‘PK’ courted controversy, but wowed the audience with Rajkumar Hirani’s treatment of a sensitive subject. ‘PK’ managed to earn Rs.740 crores across the world, it’s the highest grossing Bollywood movie ever made, so far.


Salman is in cloud nine amidst his sub-judiced cases as he has shown his acting prowess in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. This film gave Salman another Blockbuster besides giving him a serious actor tag that can do well if given a good role.

Shahrukh is yet to deliver after ‘Chennai Express’ success. Although, SRK’s ‘Dilwale’ and ‘Fan’ done quite well at the box-office; but ‘Chennai Express’ stormed the box-office with elan. This khan has always managed to hog the limelight. Who can ignore his unparallel demand in endorsements in advertising world? He is the king, and Brand Shahrukh does sell.

Among these evergreen actors, Aamir and Shahrukh are stronger on the acting part. Whereas, Salman is known for his bindass attitude on and off the screen; his shirtless sexy body can make any young beautiful lady drool over him! And, why not he’s still a bachelor, after all!

These three superstars have brought the trend of Hollywood with Amitabh Bachchan where Actors grow up young, and continue to do variety of roles even at an older age.

The magic of these khans shall continue believe all trade experts like Taran Adarsh, Komal Nahta and all. At present, we’re yet to get any substitute of these phenomenons. And, it’s really tough to find anyone, because their shoes are too big to fill, at the moment; isn’t it?
