Shah Rukh popularly known as the ‘King Khan’ seems unlikely to subdue his counterpart Aamir Khan.

If everything goes as planned, you can see Aamir Khan playing the role of legendary Kishore Kumar in Percept Pictures next film. Aamir Khan may most probably end up giving his nod for playing the role of legendry singer-actor Kishore Kumar in the biopic that is being made on him.
"I have been approached by Percept Pictures for the film on Kishore Kumar. They have asked me to play the role of Kishore Kumar,” Aamir told during a function.

Though most people can’t stop raving about the actor’s ‘bald head-bare chest look’ in his forthcoming flick ‘Ghajini’, Aamir himself is apparently not happy with the way his new look has turned out to be!
If reports are to be believed, the actor feels that he could not give his hundred percent, and could have pulled off a far better job with his killer street-fighter look if he had got the chance to train more.
No matter how much the filmmaker and the cast of 'Ghajini" claim that the Hindi film is not an exact 'remake' of a South film by the same name - which, in turn, is the remake of Christopher Nolan's 'Memento' - the stark similarity between Aamir Khan and Guy Pearce's look is hard to miss! In fact, it a little tough to buy the "not being similar" story!

Many star struck men and boys visited the salons to get the perfect Ghajini cut. Two lucky fans got their hair buzzed by the Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan himself at a market in the capital. Aamir said, "Quite a lot of people are getting this Ghajini haircut from various places, so I thought I will give the cut to some of my fans myself. I felt very light when I got it done - there was no need to comb my hair after the bath."
A great hair cut was given by Aamir to Shamshir, a hairstylist, and Shivek, a grade five student, in the presence of a huge crowd.
Here’s sad news for perfectionaist Khan aka the Bollywood legend Aamir Khan fans.

The look carried by Aamir is worth noticing and it has already become much hype among the youth. The body covered with tattoos and the much sort after hair cut is supported by his super fist that can beat multiple scary-looking villains who attack him all at once.

After having tided over the copyright row, this time, Ghajini is up against the social activist Pratibha Naitthani.

Recently Aamir Khan said that he has no qualms about working with Shah Rukh, however, King Khan is “scared” to work with him. He also talked about his movies, ambition and the ‘perfectionist, control-freak’ tag that trails him whatever he does.
Aamir said, “I'm not a control freak. I'm realistic about my limits. When I act in a film, it's the director who is the boss. It's not my responsibility to control the film. But I'm always there if the director wants any help or suggestion. I just go with the flow.”

We caught up with Aamir Khan on his 44th birthday at his Pali Hill residence. Aamir who has been on a diet for his forthcoming film Three Idiots was avoiding eating his own birthday cake! When queried he said, "I am surviving on milk and few bananas as I have been asked to lose weight for the role."
About the war of words ensued between him and Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir clarified, "I only wish the best for him. There is no bad blood between me and him."
Well, Aamir Khan didn’t find the Oscar winning movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ a great film and was not impressed by its success. He also went public about it
But Danny Boyle seems to be interested in the Bollwood actor- director- producer's body of work. He also told the media that he loved Aamir Khan's work in ‘Taare Zameen Par.’
The actor who also saw success with ‘Ghajini’ was seen bonding with him and chatted for almost three hours at an event.
Danny Boyle was earlier planning a dark thriller on Mumbai and there’s a strong feeling that he might be casting Aamir in his next.
Aamir Khan has plans to send out voice messages to everybody's mobile phone urging them to vote. The star will be recording this public message very soon that will be part of a social service initiative launched by an NGO called ADR (Association of Democratic Reform).

I think I needed a break in any case, as I was kind of not really there last couple months, if you know what I mean. So I will see you now in June. Or end May. Unless I start turkeying in which case I’ll drop a line. And once I"m back rested from my holiday I'll be much more connected.”
Aamir Khan’s fan club has just got itself another member.

Rang De Basanti debutante Siddharth is yet to have his second Hindi release since three years after the Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra super hit released. While his second signed Hindi film, Striker is in the making for over two years, he doesn't seem to be making any headway in Bollywood. He has been more in the news in Bollywood town over his on and off affair with his Rang De co-star Soha Ali Khan than for his work.

Our very perfectionist Aamir Khan has turned out to be one of her fans. Reportedly Aamir is a self-confessed fan of the late talented and beautiful actress and her movies, `Roman Holiday', `Sabrina', `Breakfast at Tiffany's' and `My Fair Lady'.
Aamir Khan's used to giving autographs to others.
So imagine the experience he had when he had to stand in a queue for an autograph, that also from cartoon star Mickey Mouse.
It was for his children and as a good daddy he had to do it for their sake.
It happened during a trip to Disneyland.
He's said in his blog: "... there roaming about in the theme parks were the characters of Mickey Mouse and Minny Mouse, with loads of children queuing up with their respective parents for an autograph and a photo with their favorite cartoon character."
Aamir Khan has decided to take a break from work and globe throttle with his two children.
All work and no play can make anyone dull, including Mr. Perfectionist.

He recently enjoyed his Canadian skiing vacation thoroughly and is recommending it to everyone.
Aamir Khan is getting ready to shake his legs for ‘Delhi Belly’, which stars his loving nephew and a dashing star Imran Khan, in the lead.
The item song, which will be a part of the film’s promotion, definitely add one more feather to the flooded cap of reasons to watch ‘Delly Belly’, which is directed by ace ad filmmaker Abhinay Deo.
There is also news that Mr. Perfectionist will himself handle the different factors of the song.
On this, Mr. Deo said, "I just cannot confirm or comment anything right now, since it's not yet confirmed."

Raakh will be released on 12 June with

Though RAAKH is arriving for commercial release with a mid sized release being planned (there are talks that 200 odd prints of the film would be dispatched across the country), SAARANSH is coming due to purely emotional reasons.

In his blog, the worried Khan wrote that he is most disturbed to hear about racist attacks on Indian people.
“While this doesn't mean that all Australians are racists, the frequency and seriousness of such attacks, I think, calls for an extraordinary reaction from the Australian authorities. And while we want action to be taken by authorities in Australia, equally we should remember all the various crimes against foreigners who visit India,” the blog reads.
Reports are that Aamir Khan is set to be a dad once again as his wife Kiran Rao is pregnant for the first time.

After recently getting discharged from hospital, Aamir Khan’s loving wife Kiran has been hospitalized again after the fever recurred.
After thorough tests, doctors discovered that Kiran has lung infection.
Presently, Aamir is more worried about his wife’s health than anything else.
Bothered Aamir, who attends Kiran during night in hospital, heaved a sigh of relief after doctors identified Kiran’s problem, and with proper treatment she may get back in good condition.
When it comes to Bollywood, one can choose to be either a good actor or a commercially viable hero. Guess the only one who has struck a balance between the two is Aamir Khan. No, that’s also not true. There is one more name, Shreyas Talpade. Yes, yes, before you say the two cannot be compared, we are not comparing either. Just driving home the point that Shreyas can be a great actor and at the same time a commercially viable hero too.
Remember the famous late Mohd Rafi’s evergreen song, ‘Kya Hua Tera Wada’ or ‘Tum Kya Jano Mohabbat’, where one handsome boy sings these songs. He is Tariq, cousin brother of actors Aamir Khan and Faisal Khan. He was during those considered the hottest guy every girl would dream of marrying. He gave three biggest musicals hits of all time in Yaadon Ki Baraat, Zakhmee and Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahin. Last week we caught him at the grand launch of Ali Reza’s Sheesha Sky Lounge, Andheri. He was seen with his wife in good mood but no one recognized him. He is presently working in a courier service.
The most gorgeous lady, Katrina Kaif and the hottest stud, Aamir Khan come together to recreate the magic of Guru Dutt and Waheeda Rehman on silver screen. The duo will be seen in a Guru Dutt biopic by Rakesh Om Prakesh Mehra.

Aamir Khan donned the classic look of Guru Dutt and draws a lot of similarities by his dressing and hair style, while Katrina is looking an elegant reminiscence of Waheeda Rehman.
It is going to be a battle worth a watch as three biggies are all set to clash on the Republic Day weekend. Amitabh Bachchan's Rann, Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots and Ranbir Kapoor’s Rajneeti are slated now to release on January 22nd 2010.

Despite our best efforts we were unable to avert a miscarriage. The last 2 months have been a struggle for us and that is one of the reasons I was absent from the blog in more ways than one.”
Here’s a good news for ‘Quick Gun Murugan’ actor Rajendra Prasad.
The Tollywood actor has impressed none other than Aamir Khan, the perfectionist actor of Bollywood.
Aamir watched the movie at Ketnav theatre in Bandra with his cousin sister Nuzhat and friend Amin Haji. The Ghajini actor was so impressed by the movie that he mentioned about in his blog.

New Delhi, Oct 16 - Bollywood star Aamir Khan has finished shooting for Rajkumar Hirani's much awaited "3 Idiots", based on Chetan Bhagat's bestseller "Five Point Someone", and confesses that now he is worried about the audiences' reaction.
With top notch Bollywood celebrities sashaying down the ramp, the second edition of the HDIL India Couture Week was high on glamour and less on couture.
All the Khans of the industry — Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan, and Imran Khan walked the runway. Giving them company were B’town faces like Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor, Sridevi, Gauri Khan and Shruti Hasan.
After his personal and professional life went haywire, Aamir Khan’s step brother Hyder Ali realized that he needed to change his name to Rehaan Khan. His friends suggested the name change to him.
He has finished working on two films with his new name– Raja Bundela’s Dil to Deewana Hai with actress Sada and Triumph Card, an action film.
New Delhi, Oct 23 - The six-pack or the eight-pack abs of Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan may look mighty impressive but it's inspiring many youngsters to pump iron without being aware that this "exercise addiction" could prove fatal. This week two people in India were victims of "exercise addiction".
Forty-two year-old Ranjan Das, the youngest CEO in the country, collapsed with a massive cardiac arrest after working out in his in-house gym in Mumbai, while in Jaipur a young aspiring model died while working out at the treadmill at a gym.
Mumbai, Nov 5 : Ahead of the release of his new film "3 Idiots", Bollywood actor Aamir Khan Thursday drew a distinction between the term "idiots" and "stupid", saying that "idiots are very normal persons" who at some point prove themselves in an "unconventional way".
At an event in a city hotel to promote the first song of Rajkumar Hirani's "3 idiots", Aamir said: "Idiots are thought to be very normal persons but at some point of time they prove themselves to be someone with extra calibre. They are not stupid, rather they come to limelight in an unconventional way."
While Aamir Khan is an extremely talented actor but he was faced by a challenge when he had to ‘look’ like he was in his 20s for his role in 3 Idiots. He had to work hard on looking, behaving and dressing like youngsters these days do. His inspirations were mostly his son Junaid’s friends.
His character in the film, Rancho, is apparently based on his cousin Pablo, who is Mansoor Khan’s teenaged son. Aamir likes the way Pablo is so fidgety that he can’t stay still for a minute. He doesn’t stop to even talk.
Aamir Khan will be playing a ventriloquist in an upcoming advertisement. However, well-known ventriloquist Ramdas Padhye will actually be operating the puppet.
Padhye was shocked to see Aamir’s reaction on meeting him. Aamir said, “It’s lovely meeting you again” even though it was the first time they were meeting. He later found out that Aamir used to watch his show on Doordarshan, Meri Bhi Suno, regularly. Aamir couldn’t remember the puppet’s name but was very excited when Padhye brought it along with him one day and kept staring at it excitedly.
Aamir Khan had an embarrassing situation yesterday. He needed to use a bathroom urgently and had to rush past journalists who were waiting him at a press conference.
Aamir was stuck in the traffic for two and a half hours and was desperately looking for a bathroom. By the time he reached the five star hotel, he was almost pushing past the media and pleaded that he needed to use the bathroom.
We can’t help but feel a little bad for Aamir now.
Aamir Khan is being given a run for his money for the title of Mr. Perfectionist by south sensation Surya as he takes his Hindi lessons way too seriously. Honing his Hindi vocabulary, Surya is learning the perfect pitch to deliver his dialogues for the Ram Gopal Varma political thriller Rakht Charitra.
Apparently so serious is Surya to make a perfect Bollywood debut, that he has gone ahead and hired a tutor to improve his diction in Hindi. RGV must be so proud of him.
Apart from Surya, actor Vivek Oberoi is also to be seen in this flick in the role of gangster Paritala Ravi. Rakht Charitra is expected to go on floors from February 2010.
The box-office is in for a Rs 400 crore party. And that too hosted by the big daddies of Bollywood. Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots, which is slated for a December 25 release, is closely followed by Hrithik Roshan’s Kites on January 15, Salman Khan’s Veer on January 29 and Shah Rukh Khan’s My Name is Khan on February 12. So much so that over Rs 400 crore are said to be riding on an investment of Rs 275 crore, within a span of 42 days!

Though he is not the producer or the director, Aamir was instrumental in organising the music release of the much awaited film.
Moitra and Kirkire are touched by the actor's gesture to call their parents instead of a Bollywood biggie to launch the music.
New Delhi, Nov 25 : He might be a superstar today, but Bollywood actor Aamir Khan has no qualms in admitting that he has undergone various punishments during his education days - from getting caned to kneeling down for the whole day.
"When in school, kneeling down in front of the principal's office was a regular feature. I have also been caned a couple of times. It is strange that when you get caned, you don't realise the pain instantly, but after two seconds it shoots so badly... It's awful," Aamir told reporters here.
Mumbai, Nov 27 : Aamir Khan, who is currently busy promoting "3 Idiots", has decided not to take any new acting assignments in 2010 because he wants to concentrate on his three home productions.
"Aamir had earlier decided to take one year off. But now he has decided to extend his sabbatical by one more year. Filmmakers who have approached him with projects have been told that Aamir intends to take approximately one more year to supervise the post-production and final look of his three films," said a source close to the actor.
The perfectionist in Aamir Khan has yet again proved the credentials of his title. He doesn’t seem to be pleased with the current technology to handle the traffic in the chat rooms. So, he has decided to design a chat room his way. But what is the reason for this disappointment?
Aamir recently conducted a fans chat on the occasion of music launch of 3 Idiots on the Internet and during the chat he discovered something, which compounded the reason for his misery.
Aamir Khan and Salman Khan are spending a lot of time together these days. And Aamir has admitted to his friendship with Salman saying that they spend time together whenever they can.

Loosely based on Chetan Bhagat’s bestselling title ‘Five Point Someone,’ the Rajkumar Hirani-directed ‘3 Idiots,’ though essentially a comedy genre film, is a fairly serious take on a cruel examination system that sadly forms the basis of the Indian education system.

"Aamir told me, 'Don't move on until you've got what you want and once you've got it, don't waste time.' That was his one mantra for me," Kiran told IANS.
Debutante director Kiran Rao's "Dhobi Ghat", which released today, is a personal homage to Mumbai, her dream city.
Dhobi Ghat brilliantly shows all the aspects of Mumbai that has thus far stayed untold.
The busy traffic, the lively street life, the quick life of people, and the grave and driving rains plays an important role in the flick.
The film's title has been inspired from a well-known place in Mumbai known as Dhobi Ghat.
The flick features Aamir Khan together with three newbies including Monica Dogra, Kriti Malhotra and Prateik Babbar.
Aamir and Salman Khan are the perfect example of being in the right spirit and great frame of mind when it comes to friendship beyond competition.
Both the deadly Khans are known to be the best of buddies and have no airs or attitude coming in between them and not even their professional lives with both having an equal amount of popularity amongst cine lovers has been a hindrance to their genuine love and appreciation of each other.
Prior to the discharge of Kiran Rao’s primary directorial project, Dhobi Ghat (DG), her husband, Aamir Khan, and Kiran herself have expressed remorsefulness to the members of the ‘dhobi’ (laundryman) community if they had hurt their feelings. However, as per the two, the reservations of the laundrymen have been amicably resolved.
