After giving back-to-back romantic-comedy films, Shahrukh Khan came back with a film like Fan. The film was praised by the critics as well as the audiences but still failed to mint money at the Indian box office.
Now, in an exclusive interview to Indian Express, director Ram Gopal Varma claims that Superstar Salman Khan is already a bigger star than Shahrukh Khan.
RGV Had Earlier Also Posted Controversial Tweets About SRK's Stardom. See Below In the Slides:
He says, "He (Salman) already is a bigger star than SRK right now. Eventually stardom is about collections. The star whose last three films collected the biggest will obviously be the bigger superstar."
A few days, RGV had openly attacked SRK by saying that he will lose his stardom to Salman just like how Kamal Hassan lost to Rajinikanth.
On which he says, "Films work on two levels. I don't subscribe to the fact that it is the story that makes the film work. It is the emotion. Emotion can be created by a star. Just the sight of a SRK or Rajnikanth can give you a high. And all the film needs to do is not to bore you."
"It doesn't need to tell you a story also. I think especially for superstars it is very dangerous to take up a story or different kind of a concept unless he is consciously making the decision."
"That is where I drew the comparison to Leonardo Di Caprio. Caprio is a superstar but the fact that he wants to push himself into very different kind of cinema is a conscious decision that he has taken."
"That's up to him what he wants to do. But here somebody wants to become a superstar. He wants every film to collect 300 or 400 crores. Then you can't afford to be like that."
