Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, and Salman Khan are regarded as the prominent phenomenon in Bollywood. Dubbed the 'Khan trio', the three Khans have been instrumental in shaping contemporary Indian cinema since the late 1980s. While SRK is known as the 'King of Bollywood,' Aamir is called 'Mr Perfectionist' and Salman is fondly called as Bhaijaan by his fans. The Khan trio has collectively dominated the box office for over three decades, influencing trends and setting benchmarks in the industry with their unique style and approach. They are looked up as the indispensable 'Icons' of BTown.

However, recently, veteran actress Farida Jalal, who has worked with SRK, Aamir and Salman in several movies, revealed secrets about the Khan trio. Moreover, she also disclosed who is the 'hardest working actor' in Bollywood.

Farida Jalal has worked with almost every big star in the industry. She was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's  Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar, in which she played the character of the fun-loving grandmother of Tajdaar. Throughout her illustrious career, she has portrayed several characters. However, she is loved more in Dadi or Nani character onscreen.

Recently, the actress opened up about her experience of working with the Khan trio during an interview with Bollywood Bubble.

Farida called Shah Rukh as 'stubborn,' Aamir Khan a 'prankster' and Salman Khan as 'bindass.' Moreover, she also praised Hrithik Roshan and referred to him as the 'hardest working actor'.

'Shah Rukh is Stubborn...'

Farida Jalal, who has worked with SRK in some of the most successful movies, said, "Shah Rukh Khan is a stubborn person. Otherwise, he is extremely loving and caring. I don’t think he is someone who compromises very much, if he wants something, he will strive towards it till he has it. He is extremely ambitious. I knew he would someday become a big man, and today he is, I am so proud of him.”

Further, she revealed about Aamir. She was quoted as saying, "Every actor I have worked with, so far, are different in their own ways. Aamir Khan is so different and so good."

"He keeps pulling pranks on sets. But, I didn’t get to do enough films with him. I worked with him in Raja Hindustani. I am extremely eager to work with Aamir Khan once again,” she added.

'Hrithik is like My Own, he is a Hard Worker...'

Furthermore, she recalled working with Hrithik Roshan. Notably, Duggu worked with Farida in his debut movie.

Farida said, “Hrithik to me is like my own. I was a part of his first film Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai and since the first day, I developed a very special bond with him. Then we worked together in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. We were shooting in London for this film. He told me during that time 'I am going to watch an opera, and I will take you with me', but that date of ours never happened. He’s such a darling man.”

"I would also love to add that Hrithik is a hard worker. Everybody puts hard work in their respective jobs, but there is no comparison with Hrithik Roshan. I salute his efforts. I love him a lot. The way he is around me and treats me, and cares for me, is just amazing. I watch every film of Hrithik Roshan," she added.

Farida showered praises on Duggu stating how he seamlessly pulled his character as Mughal Emperor Akbar in Jodha Akbar.

"Even the most experienced ones fail to pull this off. When I heard him speaking in Urdu, I was thrilled and clapped in excitement," she concluded.
