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.”
