Aamir Khan is regarded as the perfectionist of Bollywood and why not so. He nearly rejects hundreds of scripts before selecting one. But the movie he says yes, ultimately becomes a Blockbuster. In the recent five years, Aamir Khan is doing one project in 2 years. But the movies that he has acted in, has actually competed among themselves to become the highest grossing Bollywood movie. ( Dhoom 3, PK, Dangal). Such is the charm, persona, dedication and sheer personality of our perfectionist Aamir Khan. In terms of paycheque and remuneration for every movie, he also tops the chart among all Bollywood actors.
