I am competing with myself and not with SRK or Salman: Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan has held a special video conference with select media today afternoon. He held the conference to celebrate Dangal success. At the event, he stated clearly he doesn’t have any interest in working for Hollywood.

On talking about his competition in Bollywood he said, “I’m only competing with myself. I’m not competing with Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar or anyone. There is Ajay, Hrithik, Ranbir, Ranveer – there are so many actors there who are wonderful actors. I am not a competitive person by nature.  When I see somebody’s good work, I love it. When I saw Sultan, Dabbang – I loved it! When I saw Munnabhai…. I loved Sanjay’s work. When I see Ranbir-Ranveer’s work, it really inspires me, makes me happy. I don’t find myself competing with anybody, I only compete with myself. Competing is a very strange word. I am trying to better myself. I am trying to learn and do better than what I did earlier. As a creative person, as an artist, I am trying to improve myself. So yes, I am trying to be better than what I did earlier – as a creative person, not from a business point of view.”

He also shared his thoughts of working with Amitabh Bachchan in Thugs Of Hindostan, “We are not competing with each other. I will never see this in a competitive manner and I believe Mr. Bachchan is a much greater actor than me. I will just do what I’m supposed to do while working for the film.”

Aamir also revealed that he does not care for commercial awards. “For me, Dangal has already got the biggest award. The way the audience has given the love to the film, yeh sabse bada award hai mere liye. Commercial awards are of no value to me and I don’t think it will never change.”

    Dilwale which was last Christmas release grossed around $26 million. Despite the fact that it was an average film and faced strong competition from Star Wars, the film grossed huge due to the presence of Shahrukh Khan.

    koi poch rah tha mujhe stardom yani kya…stardom yani opar lines…jo Amir ke pass bilkul nahi hai…
    script khan…THE LAASH best example

    • To fir fan ka kya hua..oscar material film thi wo to..bhool gaya kajol bhi thi saat me dilwale me..

    • Dr janghir Khan aamir Khan film was competing with rogue one passengers and assassins creed oh yeah and will smith’s collateral beauty and like I said before if srk or salman did talaash film would struggle to do 50cr domestic let alone the 93cr it achieved.

    Top 10 bollewood grosser films
    Aamir khan = 792+ 684+542+395=2413
    Salman = 626 +580+405 =1611
    Srk =422+391+383= 1196
    Salman + srk (6 movies) = 2807
    Amir alone (3 movies ) = 2413
    [Note: dangal is still in theaters, and yes to release in china ]
