Salman is my friend. He is a bigger star than me, Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan showered praise on his contemporaries and said that good work of his colleagues make him feel happy. He described Salman Khan as the ‘powerhouse of star power’.

He said: "I can answer for myself. I don't have any negative thoughts about competition with anyone and I thank my ammi (mother) for it."

"It's not in my nature. I understand that there are people who think otherwise, but it's not in me to look at another person's work, and think, 'How come he did so well? How will I do as well?' I just don't feel like this."

"When I saw Sanju (Sanjay Dutt) in Munnabhai M.B.B.S. and Lage Raho Munnabhai, I was so happy with his work, or even when I saw Ranbir (Kapoor) in Barfi!," he added.

The 48-year-old whose next release is ‘Dhoom 3’ went on to praise Salman's magic.

"Salman is my friend. He is a bigger star than me. When I see him in Dabangg, I feel very happy. Salman doesn't need to do anything. He is a powerhouse of star power."

" Woh sirf belt hilaata hai, chashme theek karta hai, and see his magic. I have no competitive feeling," said Aamir, who is known to be a meticulous method actor.

At an event, Aamir received a request from his fans to either perform a bit of tap dance or to show his perfect body. The perfectionist has not done none of them.

Then pointing to the difference between himself and Salman, he quipped: "Salman would have done it both - tap dance and he would have shown his six-pack as well."

"I am a shy kind of person," he said.
