History: Filmfare Best Actor Awards

Filmfare Awards introduced in the year 1954 is the oldest and the most coveted trophy of the Hindi Film Industry also known as Bollywood. Out of more than 20 categories and trophies presented each year, the Filmfare Best Actor Award is something that the whole industry and fans look forward to. Its also the most fiercely competed and discussed category, as those nominated for the Best Actor award are usually a combination of immense popularity and talent.

The Filmfare Best Actor records

  • Dilip Kumar has been nominated 19 times and won 8 awards. The legend is also the only actor to win 3 back to back awards.
  • Shahrukh Khan has been nominated 30 times (all categories) and has won the Best Actor award 8 times, a record which he shares with Dilip Kumar.
  • Amitabh Bachchan has been nominated for a record 29 times but has won just 5 awards.

Something for you to comment on

  • Any actor that you feel didnt deserve the Best Actor award for his performance in a film? (See the full list above)
  • Do you think Filmfare has been unfair to the likes of Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar or any particluar actor?
  • Since 2000, the Best Actor awards have surrounded around Shahrukh Khan (3) and Hrithik Roshan (4), are they truly the best actors today?
  • Do you think Filmfare is ignoring great performances in smaller and less popular films? Like Naseeruddin Shah for A Wednesday, Rajeev Khandelwal for Aamir in 2009?
  • Should Filmfare ditch the current system of 50% Jury and 50% audience votes; and give more importance to critical acclaim than popularity / mass appeal of a film / performance / actor?

    first of all i m not belong to any camp .. n i dont hav any connection.. with any one..

  • hey people,

    these awards ceremonies are fixed. so forget about who deserved the award better than who etc.

    i do beleive there was a time when the awards were NOT fixed, and had integrity. nowadays its all to do with money. whoever is the flavour of the season and whoever can do good business for the ceremony organisers will get the award. for example in the recent awards (i think it was screen awards) akshay kumar categorically came out and said that the award organisers had ‘promised’ him the best actor award, and in return they want him to perform at the awards ceremony. akshay kumar had the guts to come out and tell the truth ! no one else in history has ever disclosed something like this. akshay kumar is honest enough to admit it. but as he refused to perform at the awards ceremony, the organisers gave the best actor award to hrithik instead !! its all on youtube.com. have a look.
    the organisers always give it to actors they can benefit from financially !!

    i think it goes like this : they count the votes to see who will win the best actor award. if they then see there is no benefit for them in that actor winning the best actor award, then they will offer it to the next nominated actor who they can benefit from.

    in the old days money was not much of a concern to many people. they believed in producing good work. nowadays the competion is so tough, its all to do with money. so that is why the awards are fixed these days.
    so there is no point in wasting your breath in arguing who should have won the award etc. post 1995 i think all award ceremonies are fixed. unless there is no financial benefits involved with any of the nominees. then they will just give the award to the vote winner.

    the awards are fixed. they also have no integrity, and come up with silly awards each year that have no meaning whatsoever. like for example: the style icon award, the best jodi award, the special award (for what ?), . all these awards have got nothing to do with acting !! they are a complete joke !

    its all to do with money baby.

  • Hi Spiderman

    Do you think Akshay Kumar would have said what he did, had he won one Filmfare? The truth is, he never deserved the best actor award. Your comparing Hrithik in Jodha Akbar to Akshay in Singh is King? What a joke..!!

    You’ve got to remember that Filmfare is a Jury and popular award combined. So the chances of guys like Naseeruddin Shah winning is close to nil. How many people have watched Wednesday? The audience votes (50%) would go to either Hrithik or Aamir or SRK. In recent times Akshay, but Akshay had no chance 3 years ago, he wasnt even in the top 10 most popular actors. From the nominations this year, I would say every nominated performance was better than Akshay’s in SIK.

    To be honest with you, Hrithik closest rival this year was Aamir. But we all know Hrithik deserved it more.

  • Complete Joke? Fixed? I think most deserved it

    2000 – Sunjay Dutt (Vaastav) — Fully deserved it best performance of the year.
    2001 – Hrithik Roshan (Kaho Naa Pyar Hai) — Cant get a better performance than this
    2002 – Aamir Khan (Lagaan) — Sunny Deol was good but Aamir was flawless.
    2003 – Shahrukh Khan (Devdas) — I dont agree with Filmfare here
    2004 – Hrithik Roshan (Koi Mil Gaya) — Best performance ever in lead role. I dont think it can get better than this.
    2005 – Shahrukh Khan (Swades) — Not very popular as the movie tanked. Yet i rate this as one of SRK’s top performances.
    2006 – Amitabh Bachchan (Black) — Deserved to win
    2007 – Hrithik Roshan (Dhoom 2) — Dont agree again with Filmfare, but then it would have gone to Hrithik for Krrish. So the right actor won, although he won it for the wrong film.
    2008 – Shahrukh Khan (Chak De India) — SRK’s best ever IMO.
    2009 – Hrithik Roshan (Jodha Akbar) — Best of the year and Hrithik second best performance.

    So as you see.. They havent been very consistent but the deserving winners have won except 2003.

  • I agree to Spiderman to some extent bcoz in case of Saif Ali Khan’s Hum Tum he won the National Award if im not wrong but he didnt get a single Best Actor Award that year ’05 instead SRK takes it home.
    i guess plp agree to the fact that National Awards r given to the best acting performance.
    and ’07 awarding it to Hritik for D:2 only made me feel its all rigged and Suniel dont mistake me but Aamir (Fanaa & RDB) was way better than Hritik(Krissh) its only bcoz Aamir sued Filmfare the reason it went to Hrithik, and i thnk we shud not consider Aamir act in RDB a supporting one.

    I wud say post 95 its all rigged…

  • hi again … yes i m agree some time film fair award r fixd ..
    for example

    1992.. shahrukhkhann deserv best actor award for raju ben gaya gentle man … but award gose to anil kapoor the award r fixed..

    1994.. shahrukhkhann deserv best actor award for kabi han kabi na … but award gose to nana patiker the award r fixed..

    1996.. shahrukhkhann deserv best actor award for chahat .. but awar gose to aamir khann the award r fixed

    1999.. shahrukhkhann deserv best actor in comedian role for badshah award but the award gose to jhony lever.. the award r fixed

    2000.. shahrukhkhann truly deserv best actor award for mohabbat but the awar gose to retic roshan.. the award r fixed

    2001.. shahrukhkhann truly deserv best actor award for ashoka but the award gose to aamir khann .. the award r fixed..

    2003… shahrukhkhann truly deserv best actor award for kal ho na ho.. but the award gose to retic roshan the award r fixed..

    2005.. shahrukhkhann truly deserv best actor award for peheli but agian the award gose to amitabachan the award r fixed

    2006 shahrukhkhann truly deserv best actor award fot Don but the award gose to retic roshan again the award r fixed..

    in recently 2008 ..shahrukhkhann truly n really deserv best actor award in Rab nay Bana di Jori n again again again the award gose to retic roshan … in these year the award r truly fixed ..

  • My dear Khann, u are so so right. My heart goes out to u. SRK is so fantastic and should have won in all the years u mentioned. It is so unfair. I wish I could lend u my shoulder to cry on but instead I will send u a packet of hankerchiefs and a brand new tissue box, full of soft fluffy tissues. Use them to have a good boo-hoo. These will arrive at Peshawar at 12 noon. Pls pick them up from DHL office. Once again so sorry for the unfairness and from now on it will be SRK and only SRK who will win…then u can send me the hankies back.luv u khann

  • suniel

    you are wrong. the award ceremonies are fixed, without a doubt. please do your research before putting forward your argument.

    yes, certain years the deserving actors got the award. but you will find its either because the award had to be given to them – the award organisers had no other choice, or that there was no financial benefit elswhere for the award organisers . or that the acting of that actor was so great that there would be a public outcry if the award was not given to that actor.

    also, with regards to the film vaastav and sanjay dutt winning the best actor award. he fully deserved it because his acting was mind blowing. BUT, there was also financial benefit involved. sanjay dutt agreed to perform at the award ceremonies free of charge !! please do your research and find out.

    also, iam not saying akshay kumar deserved the award over hrithik roshan. i know hrithik roshans acting was much better. but to be honest, although hrthiks acting was very good, the best actor award should have gone to aamir khan for the film ghajini. aamirs performance was out of this world and his career best performance to date. the whole industry even agrees with this being his best performance ever. so the award should have gone to aamir.

    the question is, why didn’t aamir get the award ?? the simple answer is because he does not attend award ceremonies. so the award organisers ‘chose’ to give the award to someone else, as there is no benefit for them in aamir not attending.
    at least akshay kumar had the decency to acknowledge aamir as the only deserving award receiver,and dedicated his award to aamir.

    so you see my friend, its all to do with politics and money.

    going back to my original statement, yes, indeed, the award ceremonies are fixed. so please wake up to this fact. the sooner you all realise this, the less headache it will cause you.

    one more example. we all know that amitabh bhachans best performance was in the film sholay. probably one of his best acting roles ever. but why didn’t amitabh win the best actor award for his performance ?
    simply because amitabh was a relatively new actor at the time without any influence or power and the director was also relatively unknown, the producers being not that successful either. so it made no sense for the organisers to give amitabh the best actor award. he had no influence and there was not any financial benefits coming from him. hence he never won the award for that role. but now after all these years we know that role was probably amitabhs greatest role ever and was very well acted in a very sensitive manner. that role actually made amitabh a legend. a bit like what vaastav did for sanjay dutt.

    so you see my friend, the awards ceremonies are indeed fixed most of the times.

    also, can someone tell me what on earth is the point of the best jodi award ??? and the best style icon award ??? these awards have got nothing to do with acting whatsoever !!! i mean, this isn’t a fashion show is it !!??
    it is another example of the organisers making awards up as they go along, just to add to thier incoming rumeneration and tons of extra benefit.

    its a joke alright.

  • Aryan and Spiderman thank you for your comments above.

    I know u will not like to hear this but Aamir Khan is NOT as talented as Hrithik Roshan. Hrithik is far more versatile and superior in immersing himself completely into his roles. Being so young, this is mind-blowing. SRK Aamir and Akshay fans are being very mean spirited about this. Today Hrithik is the best actor in the industry and no amount of agruements can alter this simple truth.

    Aamir is very good. But he has developed a very bad attitude. This is evidenced by the petty acts of not even providing clips of his films to Filmfare. I cant blame Filmfare in this. If someone were to sue you, would you keep any relationship with that person? At least, they are still nominating him and infact for TZP they gave him the best debut director and best film award. So whose behaviour is worse here, Aamir’s or Filmfare’s?

    As for Ghajini, Aamir was good in it but Hrithik was far more superior as Akbar. So how could Aamir win? If the industry says this was Aamir’s best performance, their vision is colourfully tainted by the 200 crores! He was much better in Fanaa, RDB and Lagaan but still not better than Hrithik in Krrish and D2.

    As for Akshay (dedicating the award to Aamir at the Star Screen Awards ceremony), he was just trying to impress the viewers and annoy SRK and Hrithik. He wrongly thought that this move would influence Filmfare not to give Hrithik the award he deserved. Now he has approached Ashutosh and not Aamir to do a film with him! How ironic!

    So awards are fixed in many categories but with Hrithik, they did right. As for Aamir, he should stop being petty….

  • But ofcourse Khann, SRK is the Sun and the whole world HAS to revolve around him. To remind you of this, I am going to send you a globe with SRK’s picture stuck on each and every country. Keep it on your nightstand and before you go to sleep, give it a good ole swirl, let it spin and spin and let that remind you of SRK’s greatness. This will arrive @ Peshawar at 12 noon tomorrow. Please collect it at your local DHL office. Luv u Khann.

  • Khann, I request you to stop spamming here. If you have anything sensible to discuss or add to the topic, please do, else your comments will be deleted.

  • ABD, i dont know y but with Hrithik he jus doesnot want to b wit the senior actors he is happy doing his roles, he is jus following his dad’s footsteps to b low profiled, remember wen KNPH was a mega blockbuster n it was Hrithik who was all over the place flaunting bare chest, biceps and dance skills he was on clound 9 and it took just few films to bring him to ground reality and wat it takes to b in bollywood, he was getting considered as the next Kumar Gaurav. He is already bitten with stardom so its his modesty that makes him the obvious contender.
    Filmfare knws this if v cant giv it to SRK giv it to Hrithik everybodies happy.
    I am not saying he is avg actor he is a good actor but not versatile.
    To me the most versatile actor is AB,Anil Kapoor & Govinda(not post ’98 though)

  • Hrithik indeed the best actor the bollywood has….The mode of selection(50% jury n 50% audience is the best way to judge best actor) also justifies hrithik to win the award bcoz he totally has got thumb’s up from both critics and audience for his role as akbar whereas SRK cannot win awards al due to his popularity there must be some strong roles or characters that should win the award so he was rejcted by critics but was not let down by audience .
    The roles hrithik plays in every film is just variable from each previous one(KNPH,KMG,FIZA,MK,KMG,LAKSHYA,DHOOM 2,KRIISH n jodha akbar) all roles r so different that makes him a complete actor.whereras u c roles of SRK all romantic one’s(DDLJ,KKHH,DTPH,DEVDAS,RNBJ,OSO etc) he knows nothing else(Except baazigar,chak de).Does he deserves awards for all romantic oriented films he does again n again.
    Akshay and aamir do play some different roles but whn compared to Hrithik they go down at that year but thier chances of winning awards at other non hrithik films year is taken away by SRK. so hrithik with 4 awards in 14 films he has done is quite a good job.
    Also hope hrithik wins next year for KITES (in another different role ) and hope akshay (kambahkt ishq and 8/10 tasveer )brings him 1st filmfare award as SRK again in same romantic role MY name is khan will not be accepted by critics.

  • ABD

    it is clear you are a huge shah rukh khan fan and hence your views are clearly biased. and that is why you are trashing the likes of akshay kumar, aamir khan etc.

    you talk about akshay and aamirs fans being mean spirited about shah rukh, yet you yourself are doing exactly the same thing ! clearly showing your support for shah rukh by making outrageous statements such as ‘the whole world has to revolve around shah rukh’ and trashing aamir khan and akshay kumar without any rational explanation.
    this is double standards my friend.
    this forum is not about our favourite actor and we should support him at any cost, but rather about logical, rational and factual discussion based on evidence.

    what i told you about the award ceremonies being fixed and the reason why the best actor award did not go to aamir is absolutely true. its all to do with politics and money. if aamir khan had decided to attend the award ceremony or even perform there, the scenario would have changed and maybe amir would have walked away with the best actor award.
    as for aamir having a bad attitude. he has always been like that, since day one. since the qayamat se qayamat tak days. he has always been very meticulous, very shy, very hardworking and very self protective, a perfectionist. he does things his way. thats his personality. so, he has not developed a bad attitude all of a sudden ! those who know him will confirm that this is the way he has always been.

    as for hrithik roshan being a better actor than aamir khan, that is debatable. aamir khan can carry off even a low budget mediocre film on his shoulders (taare zameen par). if hrithik had done taare zameen par, do you think it would have been such a big hit ? i do not think so. it would have done average business. hrithik cannot carry a film based on his acting alone. evidence – films like lakshya, fiza, and the recent film with farhan akhtar etc that flopped.

    people go to see aamirs films because of his acting prowess. everyone knows he is one of the better actors in bollywood history. whereas people generally go to see hrithiks films because of the gloss and glamour factor. that doesn’t mean hrithik is not a good actor. he is. but aamir has far better acting skills than hrithik. hrithiks performance in jodha akbar was good, but aamirs performance in ghajini was out of this world and in a far superior class.

    i do not have any particular favourite actors. i like shah rukh, akshay, aamir equally. so my views are not biased in any way. one has to tell it like it is.#

    the fact remains, these award ceremonies are indeed fixed most of the times.

  • Did I just read someone saying that Hrithik is not a versatile actor? Pray tell, does this person KNOW the meaning of lversatile This is indeed laughable because making that statement is surely an act of foolishness. Dictionary anyone?

    Spiderman, hush hush, don’t ruin the moment. Can’t you hear this? Listen…such sweet sans-Khann silence. Now Spiderman, it seems my humour just washes over you like rain off a duck’s back. Please don’t be so “blonde”, it is a really big buzzkill when you don’t appreciate the art of irony. Sarcasm anyone?

  • Addressed to Mr. Spiderman,

    First and foremost, believe me, my friend ABD is NO fan of SRK. You have badly misunderstood his comments made to Mr. Khann. Perhaps you should revisit the dialogue between ABD and Mr. Khann and you will see how wrong you were.

    Aamir Khan has the prowess to register very big hits. That is why this year, he is No. 1 on the Filmfare Power List and that is where he should be. 200 crores plus is no small feat. Bravo to him!

    However, in our discussions on this site, whether an actor can carry a film and make it a hit is NOT A CRITERION. Our discussions are solely on acting ability, even if the film is a flop.

    Aamir Khan is and has always been an excellent actor. I have admired his work in many films. My favourites are: Lagaan, Hum Hai Rahi Pyar Ke, Rang De Basanti and Fanaa. However, Hrithik Roshan has undoubtedly overtaken him in acting ability. This is now a fact, no longer debatable. Aamir was excellent in RDB and Fanaa but Hrithik was better i.e. above excellent in Krrish and Dhoom 2. Similarly, Aamir was very good in Ghajini but Hrithik was undoubtedly superior in Jodha Akbar, So, Hrithik may not be able to carry a film on his own and make it a hit, but when his performance is considered on its own merit, he is above all the others, at the moment. This may change, who knows, but right now at this time, he is the best!

    I firmly believe he could have done even better than Aamir in TZP as the teacher of the dyslexic child. I also firmly believe that if Hrithik was in place of Aamir, Mangal Pandey would not have flopped. Hrithik could also easily have done Aamir’s role in RDB and Fanaa and also in Ghajini.

    By the way, do not forget that Ghajini was a remake of a Tamil film and Aamir already had the Tamil actor’s performance as a backbone to work on. To date, there has never been a film featuring a young Akbar (before marriage). In Mughal E Azam, Akabr was an old man. This was the case also in Anarkali so Hrithik has to create the role of the young Akbar from scratch. Even SRK had Dilip Kumar’s role in Devdas to help him recreate the same role.

    You say you are not biased but from your comment I can see clearly that you ARE biased against Hrithik, otherwise you would not “debate” his role in Jodha Akbar agianst Aamir’s role in Ghajini. Also I dont hear you protesting against why Aamir was not given the award for Hum Hai Rahi Pyar Ke, Akele Hum Akele Tum, Rangeela, Mann etc but you are very vocal about why he did not get the award for his role in Ghajini. As I have said Ghajini was not even an original performance and Hrithik was miles ahead as Akbar. So, definitely there is a bias against Hrithik.

    All in all, Aamir wields more power as his fanbase is greater and his films are very big hits but as far as acting goes, Aamir is very good, even perhaps excellent, but Hrithik is well above him. This fact should be accepted with humility. Nobody can remain the best forever. Soon, somebody will come along who will be even better than Hrithik. That is all in the hands of God. Each actor should therefore be humble, work to the best of his ability and use these gifts of fame and wealth to further the cause of humanity for as long as they will last. Only God is perfect and it does not befit us to give human beings like Aamir Khan the title of “perfectionist”. Everyone has flaws, weaknesses, flops etc. This should be accepted with humility. For every human being there will always be someone else who is a little bit better.

  • ABD i dont know if you r a male/female, i will take ur comment directed to me anywayz as far as ur comment above goes let me tell u wat is the meaning of versatile = Competent in many areas and able to turn with ease from one thing to another. and wen i say competent its not like giving a try…
    If you doubt this u can search in web.
    Now coming 2 ur point abt Hrithik being versatile…i wont agree to it unless he does one comic role/ make plp laugh with his histrionics. I laughed at his poor acting in Lakshya (First 30 mins) trying to emulate Aamir’s character in DTH , this is wat i mean by versatality…
    Actors like AB, ANil Kapoor hav excelled brilliantly in all areas b it a small role/lead watever these r the one’s which r called Versatile actors being the best in everything…

    “Versatile doesnot mean Jack of all”

    no hard feeling though…

  • Dr. RC Patel, i knw this is none of my business to come in-betn U n Spiderman…but i hope u will allow me to interfere…Thank you…

    I really dont agree to u wen u write Hrithik cud hav done better in aamir’s role in the films that u mentioned. Hrithik is good with magnanimous roles alone…do u really think he was convincing in Luck by chance or some of his Avg movies in BO…
    do u really think he cud hav pulled off Fanaa first half i seriously doubt that…whereas i can surely tell u Aamir cud hav done mcuh better in JA, Mangel Pandey lacked good screenplay or magic moments, his acting was on the money same was the case wit Lakshya.
    It really makes me wonder hw can a actor do Lagaan kindof movie n follow it up wit DTH in the same year wit atmost elan..

    Believe me many will disagree on u saying Hrithik cud hav done better than Aamir in the above movies u mentioned u may hav seen more movies more actors than me but…
    “I respectfully Disagree to you”

  • According to me, Hrithik and Aamir can be compared to Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle. It is very difficult to say who is the better of the two singers. Both excel in their respective strong areas but both have weaknesses too. Yet, they are both legends. Some like Asha better, others like Lata better. The same applies to Hrithik and Aamir. So we are lucky to have both of them to entertain us, and comparing them will lead to the “chicken and egg dilemma”.

    I love both Aamir and Hrithik but this year because of Jodha Akbar, and because of many weaknesses in Ghajini, Hrithik deserved the award for best actor. But are marvellous in their own ways. So Aryan and Spiderman, just as it is hard to choose between Lata and Asha, it is hard to choose between Hrithik and Aamir.

    Your points are valid and respected but so are ours i.e. myself, Dr. R.C Patel, Anonymous, Karthik, Suniel, Indicine Team etc. And it is also a fact, and most important fact, that both Aamir and Hrithik are miles ahead of SRK, thank God.

  • aight plk
    can someone tell me, in what month of year this award comes up?
    did srk or anushka get anything for rab ne banna di jodi, or the movie came up late and it will be nominating next year? :D

  • first of all I want to know is there problem between filmfare and Salman_Khan … Really I want to know why they don’t accept him as Best Actor first in 1989 ( Maine Pyar Kiya ) Salman did amazing job in his first debut movie but he didn’t recieved any award , in 1994 ( Hum Aapke Hain Kaun ) In my opinion Salman best role did I see there as role ( Prem ) but the filmfare award goes to nana .. in 2003 ( Tere Naam ) who don’t Cry for his role there as [[ Radhie ]] also he didn’t get filmfare award . So there’s many questions why Salman Khan as abig Super Star in Bollywood does not won 1 award in his career from 1989 till 2009 it’s 20 years not a short time .. please filmfare See this Actor and as small thing to give him he should won 1 filmfare at least as a actor for his brillent and successful career .

    2008 I Think that Hrithik Roshon did a good job in ( Jodha Akbar ) but there is an actor who deserve the filmfare award for the 3rd time in his Career Aamir Khan for ( Ghajni ) the biggest hit film all over Cinemas .. I accpet Hirthik role he desrve Critics award for it .

  • hi
    ABD thanks for your all comments. But from my point of view you are a movie specialist. i dont understand why the different award functions are not selecting you as their member of jury pannel. one more thing i thing you are jelous about srk. otherwise how a normal person can write comments like that srk has no quality in acting for getting award not even in ddlg, dtph, kkhh, not evn in devdas, swades, chakde india,.
    I think you are the no 1 officer in special intillegent bach who has found that filmfare has been paid by srk to give him award. Really yopu have done a nice job for this reason you should be appointed as cvi chief and you deserve varat ratna. hum lok kitna khosh nasib hu tomhari tara cvi officer, critic aur knowledgeable person in the whole india. I want to know who has appoint you to discover the fact that srk gives bribe for award. we are proud of you

  • Aamir khan is the best actor ever………………Hrithik also good actor
    But filmfare is not a balanced award ceremony.I accept the attitude of aamir to the filmfare…..

  • hi every 1…. salman khan deserved award in the film tere nam that was the only film he acted seriously, but the father(Amitab) overtook him, who really produced a very touching film in 2006. salman khan does not deserve awards in any other single film coz all he knows is to firt hehehe which really makes no sense, on the other hand srk is the best actor i’ve ever seen, aamir cannot compit with srk, by the way srk is very famous like the other great asian actors jackie chan, bruce lee, jet lee and e.t.c he is well known thats why he is known even here in north africa , aamir is very nice actor but he cannot act like srk, example srk darr people sympathize with the wrong against the write, thats how he acts, guys u cant blame srk for aamir not winning awards, and ajay dev doesnt even deserve to act coz he wants every point on his way, look srk he gives u no:1 actor but still he wins e.g darr sunil took everything people are still with srk, shahrukh khan is the best india don’t blame him……….

    i hope every 1 that i disappointed will 4give me bye indicine

  • guys i am back and i am sorry about my wrong spelling above… i ment to say, in the film darr people (audience) sypathize with the wrong against the right…

    people are with srk and thats all about acting.

  • hi liza i agree every point with you, and jelousy is what made aamir khan insult sharukh khan , and finally ran away from the film industry .

    and ABD if u mean the whole bollywood is paid by a brilliant actor like srk u r very wrong, and u think u r intelligent than those many educated people who decided all those awards . wether u like it or not srk in the best actor who can really compit dillip kumar……

    shame on aamir.. he cant act like srk thats why he insulted him you better cry aamir
