Indian filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma doesn't seem to appreciate the fact that superstar Shah Rukh Khan is branching out his acting career with different roles such as Gaurav from his new movie Fan.

Varma has taken to Twitter to warn SRK not to follow in the foot steps of Indian actor Kamal Haasan or else he will lose his star status to Salman Khan.

The Satya filmmaker criticised Shah Rukh's role as an obsessed fan in Fan as well as his upcoming project with Aanand L Rai in which he will be seen as a dwarf, which parallels Kamal’s role as a dwarf in Appu Raja.

Varma also notes that it isn't great acting that has earned SRK his title as a megastar - "Stars like SRK come blessed by God," he tweeted.

The director claims SRK doesn't have the same amount of muscles and workmanship as Salman Khan and Aamir Khan respectively, but is still of a higher status by "being just himself."

He notes that Salman Khan has always been himself, and if SRK starts experimenting with roles that do not compliment his superstar persona, then Salman will take his place.
