Aamir Khan: I can't compete with Mr. Bachchan

10th January 2013

He is a man whose big heart and affectionate ways have warmed the entire nation to his inimitable style. His stardom transcends borders and the fan frenzy he generates is unmatchable. Such is Mr. Amitabh Bachchan's aura that even Aamir Khan, the perfectionist admits to being in awe of him.

Apparently, Big B alongwith a few other have been nominated for India's Prime Icon held by Big CBS Prime.

The Shahenshah of Hindi cinema, Amitabh Bachchan and the reigning Khan of Bollywood, Aamir Khan have always admired each other's personalities, work ethic and ability to be an all-rounder.

While Big B has shown great appreciation towards Aamir's work and his mannerisms, even though the duo have never acted together in a movie, Aamir too has been very open about the respect he holds for the enigmatic superstar.

In spite of once being in the running for India's Prime Icon himself, the Bollywood's 'Mr. Perfect' admitted that he does not find himself comparable to Mr. Bachchan's stature in the industry and otherwise.

When asked about the original 'Don' of Bollywood, Aamir commented, "I don't even feel I am on the same platform as him, I am not even anywhere close. I can't compete with him because I hold him in such high esteem."

With India's Prime Icon fast approaching its finale, it remains to be seen whether Aamir's icon will be the one who will walk away with the prestigious title.
