"I feel Salman is ahead of me. Considering the way his recent release `Bodyguard` has broken all box office records if anyone, who is a number one box office star, then it is Salman," Aamir told reporters here last night, after launching the music of Sunil Bohra`s forthcoming film, `Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster`.

"He has proved with this movie that he is ahead of all of us. I am happy and my best wishes are always with him," he said.

Salman and Kareena Kapoor starrer `Bodyguard` that released on Eid, surpassed box office records of `3 Idiots` and `My Name is Khan`. Salman was in the US for a nerve surgery when the movie received such a massive opening.

"I had a word with him and his health is much better now. I had given the news of massive opening of Rs 21 crore. I had sent a text to Alvira and asked her to pass the message to Salman after the surgery. I wanted to be the first one to give him the good news," Aamir said.

Aamir and Salman worked together for `Andaz Apna Apna` and Aamir says they want to reunite again onscreen.

"I would love to work with Salman…we have a good tuning and it will be fun working together. But till we get a good script or something that excites us we will not come together for a film," Aamir said.

About his friend Sunil Bohra`s film, `Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster` Aamir said, "I am here to give my best wishes to him and the team. The title of the film is nice and the promo and characters look interesting."
