New Delhi: Over his career spanning 25 years, superstar Akshay Kumar has achieved many feats. He has experienced different genres, reinvented himself and with his hard work become one of the most sought after actors of Bollywood.
Given his superstardom Akshay has been many times likened to the superstar Khans of Bollywood, Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir. The box office numbers, the number of movies they have done and the count of hits they have given has all been compared.
But, Akshay feels that there is nothing to compare. While speaking to a leading daily, Khiladi Kumar said that though he respects all three of them, he feels it is foolish to compete with them.
“The Khans are a force to reckon with. They are the ‘Khans’ for a reason. I have never competed with them. It would be wrong of me to want to do that. I know who I am, and I know where my name and effort can take me. I’m more than happy with my space in this world,” Akshay was reported as saying.
He also added that this is not a rat race where coming first is the only thing on his mind. “I’m not running a marathon that has no finish line. On a lighter note, I can run around the block and come back home in time for dinner. I admire the Khans’ star power and salute their success. They do the same with me. But we are not in the same race. We never have been, and never will be,” said Akshay.
