'Aamir is 100 percent number one!'

You see him everywhere -- in movies, ads, and now in cricket. Yup, Shah Rukh Khan is one busy man who is always in the news.

The media's darling seems to hog all the limelight, even when he's not anywhere in the scene! Take the tit-for-tat mental tennis going on with him and another Khan (Aamir). Then there is the Indian Premier League, which the actor has a stake in with his new Kolkata team called the Knight Riders.

Girish Rao decided to chat with the busy star about Aamir, IPL and more. Excerpts:

A few days ago Aamir took a dig at you, which you reacted by saying that you are number two...

Aamir is a very dear friend but my wife (Gauri Khan) has warned me that if I say anything funny or strange about him, she will beat me up. She is an ardent Aamir fan.

If he thinks I am number two then it's a compliment for me. Sorry for the slip of tongue. Having said that we are completely opposite -- he is more intellectual and intelligent person while I am more instinctive. We both are Khans and friends, and have great regard for each other. I know his jokes, and he knows mine. He is 100 per cent number one.

One of my greatest desires in life is to do a film with him and learn a little more from him. He is stand-alone and one of the nicest gentleman. I am actually a number 10 who tries to make it to number one.
