Shah Rukh Khan might lose his star status to Salman Khan, says Ram Gopal Varma

Ram Gopal Varma took to Twitter to share: "Megastar SRK becoming ordinary fan, dwarf etc is as big a same blunder as what Kamal Haasan did to lose his stardom to Rajinikanth (Salman Khan). Kamal was as big a superstar as Rajinikanth till he started doing dwarf, fat, tall etc and as a fan I hope SRK doesn't listen to wrong advisers."

Maverick filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma lashed out at superstar Shah Rukh Khan saying that he might lose his star status to Salman Khan just like Kamal Haasan did to Rajinikanth.

He also questioned SRK’s movie selection process saying that he “should learn from Kamal’s mistakes and just be Salman”.

In a series of tweets, the “Satya” filmmaker took digs at Shah Rukh Khan’s recent decision to turn into an obsessed fan in ‘Fan’ and also upcoming Aanand L. Rai’s project in which he will be seen as a dwarf. He also hinted at Kamal’s “Appu Raja”.

He shared: “Megastar SRK becoming ordinary fan, dwarf etc is as big a same blunder as what Kamal Haasan did to lose his stardom to Rajinikanth (Salman Khan). Kamal was as big a superstar as Rajinikanth till he started doing dwarf, fat, tall etc and as a fan I hope SRK doesn’t listen to wrong advisers.”

The filmmaker, who is awaiting the release of his Kannada directorial debut ‘Killing Veerappan’, based on the shooting down of the forest brigand, added: “SRK must learn from mistakes of Kamal and not listen to near and dear ones who are stopping him from becoming a Mega Rajinikanth.

“I call SRK as megastar because neither (he) has muscles of Salman nor workmanship of Aamir (Khan) but yet he is taller than both by being just himself. Rajinikanth is Rajinikanth because he always himself and Kamal always trying to be someone else. I hope SRK will remain like himself like Salman. Kamal could have been a better Rajinikanth if he didn’t keep becoming someone else … so SRK should learn from Kamal’s mistakes and just be Salman”.

The “Aag” director also shared that “great actors” are available in abundance, but being a star comes as a blessing.

He shared: “Great actors are dime a dozen in NSD, stage etc whereas stars like SRK come blessed by God/Allah/Buddha etc, which is what SRK is not realising. Clint Eastwood super star for 30 years being himself and then is critics Hero. I don’t believe in God but as fan I pray to Allah SRK realises truth”.

      Srk will never be anything but a STAR. The man has that certain something , and no one can take that away. I believe there will always be room at the top of the ladder for real artists,people who know their craft and deliver with the pion in the soul for their art. I believe acting is a true art form, it can be live theatre , film, TV. Or the electronic media, if you are a true artist you will be on the top rung of the ladder
