Aamir Khan, who was in Chennai on Tuesday (December 17) to promote his movie Dhoom 3, is the latest star, who has admitted to be the fan of Tamil superstar Rajinikanth.

What many were not aware was the fact that Aamir Khan was influenced by Rajinikanth. They had earlier worked together in Hindi movie Aatank Hi Aatank way back in 1995. The Bollywood star said that he has been an ardent fan of the Tamil superstar even since he watched two of Rajini's Hindi films Uttar Dakshan and Geraftaar.
