The bond between Aamir Khan and Salman Khan is well known in Bollywood. Right from the times of Andaz Apna Apna, the duo shares an honest friendship till date and no wonder, both have only good words to share for each other.
One of the most loved movies of Aamir Khan is Taare Zameen Par. The movie impressed the fans due to its amazing subject, and was immensely loved by the fans. Also the child character Ishaan Awasthi played by Darshan Safari was very well appreciated. no doubt till today when we see the movie we love to see it all over again.
Released in 2007, Taare Zameen Par was a large commercial also as critical success. The film is one among the cults by Aamir Khan and amongst the all-time favourites of Bollywood. But do you know that it had been none aside from Salman Khan, who suggested the film’s title?
Yes, you read that right! it was Salman Khan’s mind from where Aamir Khan’s Taare Zameen Par got its title. During one among the parties, Salman had suggested the title to Aamir (as per IMDb and different sources).
Directed and produced by Aamir Khan, the film features Darsheel Safary, Tisca Chopra, Vipin Sharma and others in key roles. it was 4th highest grosser of 2007 with a set of 62.50 crores. the first three spots were held by Shah Rukh Khan’s Om Shanti Om (79.50 crores), Akshay Kumar’s Welcome (71.25 crores) and Shah Rukh’s Chak De India (67.50 crores).
In an appearance on Koffee with Karan in 2013, Aamir spoke about his poor first impression of Salman, and the way they eventually patched up.
He said, “In Andaz Apna Apna I had a really bad experience working with Salman Khan. I didn’t like him then. I found him rude and inconsiderate. After tasting the experience of working with him I just wanted to stay away from Salman.”
But the 2 reconnected in 2002, when Aamir was in the middle of his separation from wife Reena Dutta. He said that he was drinking heavily then, and one evening, Salman came over.
He continued, “Salman walked into my life once I was at my lowest. I had gone through a divorce with my wife. But later we bumped into each other and he expressed his wish to meet me. We met again and drunk together and we connected. And it began as a real friendship and it’s only grown.”
Since then, Aamir has said that his stardom can never be compared to Salman’s, and had even attended the premiere of his hit film Dabanng. Salman, meanwhile, had nothing but praise for Aamir’s record-breaking blockbuster Dangal
Aamir Khan will next be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha, the Hindi remake of Hollywood hit Forrest Gump.
