Aamir says he is biggest idiot.

IT SEEMS like the ' pucca idiot' effect. Actor Aamir Khan appears to be in no mood to stir up the Khan war again, especially with Shah Rukh Khan, as his next movie 3 Idiots gears up to open this Christmas Day.

" I am not the emperor. Instead, I am a joker, I am the biggest idiot," he said when asked for a reaction on being called ' the emperor of Bollywood' -- that clearly puts him above the ' King' Khan SRK -- by his 3 Idiots ' co- star Kareena Kapoor.

Last year, besides taking a jibe at Shah Rukh's No. 1 status in Bollywood, he had also termed Salman and SRK as the industry's idiots along with himself.

But now, he clearly doesn't want a clash or war of words.

" Did I really call them idiots? I don't remember," he said while jokingly checking with other journalists if he had really said it. " I feel a person's opinion keeps changing with times. At different points, distinct people appear idiots to you," he said.

Aamir's latest reaction is in sharp contrast to his last year's diatribe. Maybe, all of that had to with the fact that his last year's hit -- Ghajini -- released in the same month as SRK's Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi . But this time round, he has no competition. Coming to Salman, Aamir firmly clarified that his blog shouldn't be viewed as a publicity vehicle for his films. " My blog is not meant to promote films," he stated when asked about Sallu's newly- launched blog for his new film, Veer . However, Aamir was all praise for Kareena. The actor, in fact, found her " too pretty" to be called the fourth idiot. " Kareena has worked hard in this film. As a creative girl, she has come across as very clear and evolved," he added.

Aamir was in town on Wednesday to release a new song of 3 Idiots . Though the event was initially slated to kick off at Sri Ram College of Commerce, it was shifted at the last minute to a fivestar hotel due to security concerns.

" I worked very hard for my physique in 3 Idiots after bulking up for Ghajini . I lost all the weight in six- seven months to look like a college boy," said Aamir, who was accompanied by " the other two idiots -- R. Madhavan and Sharman Joshi." It's not surprising that Aamir took the centrestage even as Madhavan and Sharman looked on.

Unlike Aamir, the two actors could " easily identify with" their roles.

Aamir conversely felt he " never experienced college in real life." " I started working right after my school days as an assistant director in films. So, I could never really experience the thrill of college life. But my school life was fun since I was into sports and would always get less marks," he stated.

Low marks notwithstanding, he has a personal take on the education system. " It should help build complete personalities instead of just focusing on results. I think the current HRD minister is taking the right steps," he said.
