There is no doubt that Aamir is the best.
Since I am neither a fan of Shahrukh nor Aamir, I can answer this question unbiasedly. Few actors can emulate Aamir’s natural ability to disappear in a role like Patrick Wilson, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Uttam Kumar, Manoj Bajpayee, Pankaj Tripathi, etc. However, in terms of versatility and adaptability, he is miles ahead of Shahrukh.
In 3 idiots, he looked believable as a college student (despite being in his late forties), and in Dangal, he looked believable as a father.
Whenever Shah Rukh Khan appears on screen, it is evident that he is acting like someone else.
Acting is always in his nature (mostly overacting). Like sound Visual Effects, a good actor is not noticeable in their role. In a movie, you don’t see the actor; you see the character he is portraying. The results are likely to be the same for anyone with an unbiased view of this topic.
Aamir Khan or Shah Rukh Khan is a better actor?
VERSATILITY, DEDICATION, and INTENSITY are the essential characteristics of a brilliant actor. As far as his acting is concerned, SRK only exhibits the last one. Even though he is a successful actor, he has recently chosen lowbrow movies, directors, and actors. In almost all his films, he portrays a romantic man, e.g., K3G, KANK, Om Shanti Om, Veer Zara, Happy New Year, Ra One, etc. No role worth being proud of was portrayed. In the eyes of the Indian mob, that’s not an actor but a STAR. Keeping on repeating stuff and earning a lot of money, he knows the taste of Indian people. Only a businessman; he is not a professional.
We are talking about the most talented, versatile, dedicated, intense, courageous actor of our time. It is impossible to compare his versatility with any other successful actor in Indian cinema. In the opinion of Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan is a better actor than him. His excellent VERSATILITY and quality movie choices are evident in such films as Sarfarosh, Andaz Apna Apna, PK, Dhobi Ghat, Taare Zameen Par, Lagaan, Mangal Pandey, Rang De Basanti, etc. Maintaining Bollywood’s position in world cinema by delivering quality films.
These are some quick facts about the Khans of Bollywood.
According to Shah Rukh Khan, “I’m glad I’m after Aamir Khan.”. We have the most outstanding actor in our country. It is a pleasure to be friends with Aamir, Salman, and me. Aamir is a great person. Gentlemen like him are rare. Please do not compare Aamir with me, and do not put him down. He is indeed No. 1.”
“We hold each other in high regard. There is no doubt in my mind that he is the best.”
Aamir Khan’s critically acclaimed Taare Zameen Par was competing against Shah Rukh Khan’s Om Shanti Om at the time. According to SRK, the actor is intelligent and intellectual, and we are the opposite.
