  • @James what do you mean compare him to aamir? Aamir is far bigger star than akshay. And don’t talk about bhai. He is nowhere close to aamir. Poor bhai always struggled to give ATG after one fluke ATHG called hum aap ke hai kaun which was madhuri starrer. So keep your mouth shut. Aamir is biggest megastar. No one is close to him in Bollywood. Aamir khan>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>whole Bollywood.
