Shahrukh Khan, Salman or Aamir Khan – Who will rock in 2012?

Shahrukh Salman and Aamir Khan, who is the best for 2012 ? Well, as days pass, the triumphant three with their own share of dedicated fans will secretly (even if they say they don’t believe in numbers’ game) to become the number one for 2012. Let us look at what SRK, Aamir and Salman have in store for 2012

King Khan Shahrukh Khan plays it safe and special, he is back to what he does best- romance. It was mogul of romance, Yash Chopra who made him a star with Darr, DDLJ, Dil toh Paagal Hai, Mohabbatein and then made him consolidate his position with the beautiful Veer Zara. Yash Chopra himself who is back after a long hiatus post Veer Zara, will direct SRK in this untitled love story. Plus, we have one of the most beautiful women and talented actress Katrina Kaif as his love interest. Need we ask for more? Yes, we do; we have Anushka Sharma rounding up this romantic saga.

Let us come to Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan who promises great product with great promotional value. After raising the bar again and again with movies like Rang De Basanti, Taare Zameen Par, Ghajini and 3 Idiots and a cameo in Dhobi Ghaat, he is back with Talaash, a closely guarded suspense thriller which also has Rani Mukherjee and Kareena Kapoor in lead roles. . The movie is directed by Reema Kagti and is set to release on November 30.

3 idiots by the way, is the only movie in Bollywood to cross Rs. 300 crore mark. Considering Aamir Khan is someone who thinks ten times before signing a movie, we are sure Talaash may be a good movie. But will it be better than Kahaani, considered one of the best thriller movies in the world, ah, that seems like a tall order now.

Let us come back to Bollywood’s current number one hero –Salman Khan. Yes, with movies like Dabangg Bodyguard all crossing Rs 200 crore and Ready making Rs. 184 crore, you have reasons to believe his Midas touch. Salman Khan is the only actor in Bollywood who has the highest number of block-buster movies that have embraced cult status - Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Karan Arjun, Tere Naam, Wanted, Dabangg and Bodyguard.

 In 2012, Salman Khan is back with ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ directed by Kabir Khan, a prolific director who directed quality movies like New York and Kabul Express. Also please note that Salman Khan is smart enough to release his movies in Eid. The smarter thing is the release period of his film that is timed close  to Ganesh Chaturthi, which means the songs from his movies are played in full blast on loud speakers and in processions. This is one of the reasons on how the songs of Wanted, Dabangg and Bodyguard became popular with the masses.

Coming to Ek Tha Tiger, a Salman Khan movie now guarantees a terrific opening. Plus he is looking better than even before with ripped muscles and care-a-damn attitude while romancing his best friend Katrina Kaif. It is believed that for this Yash Raj movie, Aditya Chopra has paid one rupee more to Salman Khan compared to the mega price, he pays Shah Rukh Khan, his favorite.

We must also say that there are going to be a few dark horses like Ranbir Kapoor’s Barfi, Madhur Bhandkar-Kareena Kapoor’s Heroine, Ajay Devgan- Rohit Shetty’s Bol Bachchan, Akshay Kumar’s Once upon a Time in Mumbaai 2 and Rowdy Rathore, Farhan Akhtar’s Bhaag Milka Bhaag. So whom do you think will rock in 2012 – Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan or Aamir Khan or someone like Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan or Ranbir Kapoor ?
