Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan are the three superstars of Bollywood. There was a time when their name was enough to make a film blockbuster at the box office. But from the past couple of years, that’s not happening. Well, audiences have started comparing, Ayushmann Khurrana, Vicky Kaushal and Rajkummar Rao with the three Khans.

Recently, when we met Rajkummar Rao and asked him about being compared to SRK, Aamir, and Salman, he said, “Nobody can be the new three Khans of Bollywood. The kind of status, the kind of superstardom they have, we love them as superstars and they are our superstars. So, I think people just compare and they tend to do that, but I think we are very happy in the space that we are there. Aamir sir, Salman sir, and Shah Rukh sir, they are people that we also love. We never in our dream also can think of becoming like them. They are huge.”

Rajkummar Rao is undoubtedly one of the most talented actors we have in the industry. He started his career with small roles in movies Love Sex Aur Dhokha, Shaitan and Talaash. But he became a household name with his performance in Kai Po Che and then there was no looking back for him.


Rao received a National Award for his performance in Shahid. Last year, with Stree he gave the biggest hit of his career. The actor is gearing up for the release of Made In China which is slated to hit the screens on 25th Oct 2019. The movie also stars Mouni Roy and Boman Irani. It has received mixed to positive reviews.
