Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan feels words of praise coming from his actor-friends Salman Khan and Aamir Khan is due to respect they have for each other.
Recently, at an event Aamir had said Salman and Shah Rukh were bigger stars than him in the Hindi film industry. On this, Shah Rukh said, "I think between myself, Aamir and Salman we have huge liking towards each other. I also feel they are bigger stars than me. If you ask me I will say that thing and if you ask Salman he will say same thing. I think it is out of respect."
It's been 25 years since the King Khan, Dabangg Khan and the perfectionist know each other. "The day I stepped into their lives and houses they have been very kind. Aamir shows respect, regard and he is dignified," SRK added.
The 50-year-old star is all praise for the poster of the Aamir-starrer "Dangal". "I was shooting with (Director) Nitesh Tiwari yesterday and I tried calling up Aamir but couldn't get through him. His new poster of "Dangal" is beautiful. I really liked it. We are at a stage where we respect each other for what we have done."
The King Khan reveals he is yet to see Salman's latest blockbuster "Sultan". "I haven't seen 'Sultan'...I haven't got time but I have heard it is very nice. I will see it as and when I get time."
In the Aditya Chopra-produced "Sultan", Salman is seen saying good things about the "My Name is Khan" star. "When I see it I will thank him (Salman)," SRK added.
The dostana between Shah Rukh and Salman made headlines as the duo went cycling together recently on the streets of Bandra early in the morning. "Wo pata hi nahi chalta jab hum saath mein hote hai, subah hogayi! So I was going and he said cycle mein chalte hain, thoda healthy hota hai. Pata nahi use kyun subah-subah aisi healthy-healthy soojhi! So I said okay, we'll go in a cycle! So we just cycled from his house and then I sent him back in my car."
(We didn't realise when morning came! As I was leaving, Salman suggested that we should go cycling as it was a healthier option. I don't know why he was thinking of health this early in the morning! So I said okay, we'll go in a cycle! So we just cycled from his house and then I sent him back in my car.)...
