The three Khans of Bollywood may be big players when it comes to box office collections. But, King Khan believes that none of the actors can compete with a Salman Khan movie when it comes to shattering box office records.
In an interview with Femina, the superstar spoke about competing with a Salman Khan film and pay disparity between male and female actors. Here's what he said-
'I Can't Compete With Salman Khan At The Box Office'
Shahrukh Khan was quoted saying, "I can't compete with Salman Khan at the box office; none of us can. That is the reality." Interestingly, SRK's upcoming film Raees was earlier slated to release with Salman Khan's Sultan last year.
'Today, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif And Priyanka Chopra Take Home Really Good Pay Packets, More Than Some Heroes'
In the same interview, he had spoke about pay disparity in Bollywood. SRK added, "Today, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra take home really good pay packets, more than some heroes. And they deserve it. I don't know if they take more than me or Salman but they're celebrated for their worth. In other fields like, say, with a male or a female pilot, both are paid equally for what they bring to the table. But market forces dictate our payment in the film industry because they define the result at the turnstiles. When we ask for equal pay, a lot of pressure is put on women actors to sell the movie on their own steam."
Going back to SRK-Salman's friendship, the two superstars seem to be bonding big time these days. From cycling together to promoting each other's films on Twitter, the duo never fail to break the internet with their warm camaraderie! In fact, SRK will be promoting his upcoming movie Raees on Bigg Boss too.
Bollywood's 'Karan-Arjun' have finally returned back!
