Both the actors were contenders on Big CBS Prime's show "India's Prime Icon". While Aamir is out of the race, Big B is among the top three icons along with politician Narendra Modi and master blaster Sachin Tendulkar.
"I don't even feel I am on the same platform as him (Amitabh), I am not even anywhere close. I can't compete with him because I hold him in such high esteem," Aamir said in a statement.
The two actors, who share a mutual admiration for each other, haven't yet worked together in a film.
