‘Salman, Aamir and I can work in a film’
The relationship between Shah Rukh, Aamir and Salman has always been of interest to their fans. SRK speaks about the possibility of the three Khans working together. Excerpts...
Farah Khan (filmmaker) has said that ‘even God can’t bring the three Khans together’...
That’s not true. Honestly, a lot of times, it’s difficult to make a film with two lesser-known heroes as both think of themselves as stars (smiles). In this case, all three of us are actually stars (smiles). But, it won’t be a problem. All three of us are humble enough (to understand) that we are doing a film (together). We have to choose a film in which all three of us are kind of equals. I think we should do Ghostbusters (remake).
It will require too much of hardwork to achieve that...
Salman said somewhere there won’t be enough money (to make such a big film). But we can work on such points. Maybe, we can co-produce the film. But someone has to write an interesting film that the three of us can enjoy. I was reading the other day that Sajid (Nadiadwala) wants to make such a film, but my point is, ‘write a story first’. If it (the film ) happens, it’s great and even if it doesn’t, that’s also good. We don’t exist because we should be in cinema together. Instead, we exist because we should be in cinema. Period.
Have the three of you spoken about teaming up?
One day, we were sitting and Salman cracked a joke which was like, ‘yaar hum log na saath mein picture nahi karenge. Hum ladte hi rahenge. Yeh dimaag lagata rahega, tu jaldi jaldi khatam karega aur main time pe nahin aaunga’. So we discuss stuff like this.
We have been hearing about your autobiography. Do you plan to write it all towards the end of your career?
Why the end of my career? I write even now. I have written a book. Every time I think I will publish it, I find something amiss. So it could be a new failure or a new success which makes me feel, ‘I should write about this too’. I keep writing, and I don’t know when to publish it, if I ever will.
