Mumbai : When asking who is bigger star today, Veerappan director Ram Gopal Varma said that Salman Khan is a bigger star than Shah Rukh Khan. Meanwhile he said, "What to do you mean by emerging? He already is a bigger star than SRK right now. Eventually, stardom is about collections. The star whose last three films collected the biggest will obviously be the biggest superstar," RGV told in an interview when asked if Salman is emerging to be a bigger star than Shah Rukh. Salman's last three movies "Kick," "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" and "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" turned out to be three of the biggest box office hits of the actor. While Shah Rukh's "Dilwale" and "Fan" failed to stand up to the expectations.
Earlier, the "Veerappan" director had earlier raised eyebrows when he had tweeted that Shah Rukh would lose his stardom like Kamal Haasan had lost it to Rajinikanth.
