Aamir does all his challenging roles, but it's SRK who gets all the recognition, adoration , love, you name it
. SRK is an entertainer
, and indeed a superstar
who transcends Bollywood. I mean what other actor gets mobbed by non desis in every country they visit? He is doing just fine according to the cash registers around the world
Maybe thats the yardstick you use to judge an actor
, thats not mine
I prefer character actors like Om Puri, Naseeruddin Shah, Boman Irani
, Paresh Rawal
, Vinay Pathak, Konkona Sen Sharma to name a few. Aamir, Tabu, Vidhya Balan, Saif( for being cyrus, Omkara) from among the stars.
Rest assured i like Shahrukh
( when he's not hamming
). But I'm so over his roles playing a 'Rahul'or a 'Raj'. It was good while it lasted.One of my fav films is Pardes.
And why wouldnt he transcend bollywood, he's had the privilge to do the most Karan Johar Movies
(made primarily for the NRI'S-K3G,Kal Ho Nah Ho, KANK,MNIK)and all of them superhits.
Just read this. Amazing satire. http://greatbong.net/2010/02/14/my-n...gki/#more-6734
