Aamir Khan’s last release, Secret Superstar did not just receive love and praise in the superstar’s home country, India, but it has also entered the prestigious Top 5 list of all time grossing films worldwide. Even though Aamir Khan only had a cameo in the film, yet his loyal fans thronged the theatres to watch it because of their faith in the content that he brings to the table.

With the entry of Secret Superstar in the top 5 list, 3 of Aamir Khan’s films are now part of it. It is not an easy feat for any actor to have 3 of his films on the list of Top 5 Indian grossing films worldwide but Aamir Khan has managed to do that. With Dangal collecting 1908 crores, Secret Superstar collecting 874 crores and PK gathering 831 crores, Aamir Khan is the only Indian actor ever to set such a massive record with his films.

It’s not just about delivering superior content but it is also about doing that consistently. While all these above-mentioned films did phenomenally well in India, they also received humongous response overseas, especially in China.

Dangal: 1908 cr
Bahubali 2: 1700 cr
Secret Superstar: 874 cr
PK: 831 cr
Bajrangi Bhaijaan: 698 cr

In fact, according to Chinese IMDb, Aamir Khan is the top-ranked foreign actor there and Dangal is the top ranking film. The other two films apart from Aamir’s in the list of Top 5 Indian films worldwide are, Bajrangi Bhaijaan (5th rank) and Baahubali 2 (2nd rank).

While merrily lashing out at “competition” (read: Deepika Padukone) Anushka Sharma also took a snipe at Sushant Singh Rajput , stating rather unnecessarily, “Sushant has only eight days of work (in Raj Kumar Hirani’s PK)…he is just a small chapter in my life.”

Taking deep umbrage to what is being seen as an attempt to undervalue the newcomer, a source says, “Isn’t Anushka pissed off about her colleagues trying to downplay and downsize her stardom? Then why is she doing the same to another colleague? Why is Anushka commenting on the length and breadth of a co-star’s role? How does she know the size of Sushant’s role? No one except probably Aamir has read the full script.”

Setting the record straight, the source says, “Yes, it’s a relatively small role. At a time when he’s playing the lead in a Yash Raj film, Sushant has agreed to do the role in PK for one reason only, Rajkumar Hirani. It was Sushant’s dream to work with Raju. When he was offered the role, Sushant was over the moon. Raju warned him it’s a small but important role. Sushant said, ‘Doesn’t matter, Sir, even if you ask me to walk from one side of the frame to the other I’d do it’.”

Apparently, Sushant has not charged a single penny for the part. Says the source, “Raju gave Sushant Rs.20 as signing amount, and asked him what he’d like as his fee. Sushant refused any payment, got the Rs.20 laminated and has framed the same on the wall of his living room. That’s the kind of regard Sushant has for Rajkumar Hirani.”

The source informs that Sushant Singh’s role in PK would be billed as a friendly appearance. “He will be seen at the beginning of the film. His character then disappears and reappears at the end,” informs the source.

“Anushka wants her colleagues to stop commenting on her roles. She should follow what she preaches,” the source adds.

Sushant Singh Rajput remained unavailable for comment.
