Star Aamir Khan said his friend Shah Rukh Khan is an entertaining person and a terrific storyteller.
Aamir said that while both of them are curious as personalities, he opts to take heed to what Shah Rukh says.
"I have sat with Shah Rukh many times. He is a very entertaining person to sit with. He is wonderful in telling stories. I love listening to him. I think between him and me, I am more curious because I like to hear him talk.
"I like the way he tells his stories. He really conveys the moment live. He is a terrific storyteller and there is great fun in taking heed to him," Aamir said in an interview here.
The 'Dangal' actor is currently busy promoting his upcoming production 'Secret Superstar', in which he acts as a flamboyant music composer.
The 52-year-old actor said there are "actual people who live" like his type, merely he is nowhere close to him.
"Why it is a tough role for me is because I have to feel like that type. When he is full of himself, I must feel 'I am the best.' It should come from inside, which doesn't usually get to me. I am constantly questioning my work.
"My natural instinct is to be critical of myself, whereas this guy is not at all. He is certain that he is the best, no doubt about it," he stated.
Aamir also refuted the rumors that the theatrical role is inspired by music composer Anu Malik. "You may see glimpses of people, but it's not modelled on any single individual. It's not inspired by any one."
Composed and directed by Advait Chandan, 'Secret Superstar' chronicles the story of a child, played by Zaira Wasim, who aims to be a vocalist. The film reunites Aamir and Wasim post their blockbuster 'Dangal'.
While both the movies talk about women empowerment, "'Secret Superstar' is a bigger film than 'Dangal'", he says. "The difference is, in 'Dangal' the lead character is still a man. It is Mahavir's dreams that we are seeing getting fulfilled. It is when he decides, not son but my daughter can also do it. It's his decision, not the daughter's.
'Secret Superstar' is scheduled to release on October 19.
"In 'Secret Superstar', it is driven by a female character, a 14-year-old girl in Vadodara. While 'Dangal' talks to the parents, trying to tell them not to differentiate between a girl and a boy child, this film talks to the teenagers," Aamir said.
