In the wake of Ranbir Kapoor’s phenomenal success with “Animal,” which has grossed over Rs 750 crore globally, an old video featuring the late Irrfan Khan has resurfaced, causing a stir among fans.
The video, reportedly seven years old, captures Irrfan Khan ranking Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan, and Ranbir Kapoor based on their acting talent.
After careful consideration, Irrfan placed Ranbir Kapoor at the top, followed by Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan in second place.
When it came to Salman Khan, the late actor remarked, “Salman should come last,” after a thoughtful pause.
The resurfaced video ignited discussions on social media, with fans expressing varied opinions. Many SRKians took offense, citing the video’s age and the period when Shah Rukh Khan was experiencing a string of film flops.

One fan said,
“It’s widely accepted that SRK is more of a star than an actor. On pure acting skills, he’s miles below Aamir Khan, Nana Patekar, or Naseeruddin Shah and the likes.”
Conversely, Ranbir Kapoor’s admirers highlighted his recent stellar performance in “Animal,” solidifying his position as a formidable actor.
As the debate rages on, the internet remains divided over Irrfan Khan’s candid rankings from the past.
