Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan have been ruling the Hindi film industry for the past 25 years. The three Khans have been professional rivals for most part of their careers and that has sometimes affected their personal relationship as well.

Even though there have been many actors like Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Ajay Devgan, Hrithik Roshan who have delivered blockbusters but still they haven't come close to replacing or outdoing the three Khans. Shahrukh, Aamir and Salman are all in their late fourties but still filmmakers approach them to romance leading actresses half their age. The longevity and consistency and the everlasting support from their fans is the reason that Bollywood is not ready to move on.

SRK, Salman and Aamir have also seen ups and downs in their career. There have been talks at one point or the other that their career is over but every time they bounce back and prove their mettle. Their unparalleled dedication, devotion and commitment is the reason that the audience still wants more from them. It is difficult to imagine the industry without these three. They have totally changed the landscape of Bollywood.

Till date the fans haven't had the privilege to watch the three on-screen together, but if they do, one can't imagine the records that movie will break.
