Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is returning to the small screen as a host with his upcoming show TED Talks India Nayi Soch, has stated that his contemporaries Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar are doing wonderfully well as the hosts. He added that he is not competing with them. Salman currently hosting Bigg Boss 11 whereas Khiladi Kumar is seen in a comedy show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge.

"To be honest, Salman and Akshay, what they are doing, they are in the league of their own. I am not even competing with them. They are doing wonderfully well," Shah Rukh said at the launch of the Star Plus show here on Thursday.

"Having said that, I am not saying that our show is so different that we are not competing on the platform. I feel that this (TED Talks) really is a different kind of platform where it has a different sensibility. I am not saying what they are doing is old, has been there and done dead.

"I know what Salman is doing, he is doing a Bigg Boss 11' and Akshay is hosting 'The Great Indian Laughter Challenge'. But this show is different and unrelatable," Shah Rukh added.

Shah Rukh said that TED Talks India Nayi Soch is an inspiring show.

"I think this will be running in a league of its own and not competing with anyone. It is generally a very hopeful and inspiring show. It will have entertainment. It is not plugged in to get ratings or audiences. The show is about sharing ideas. Hopefully we will be competing with ourselves for what aTED Talks' has created over the years," he said.

TED Talks India: Nayi Soch is a Hindi TV talk show created in partnership with TED, a non-profit organisation devoted to 'ideas worth spreading'. It will feature speakers from various fields sharing ideas in TED's signature format of short, powerful talks. This is the first time TED is collaborating with a major network to produce a TV series featuring original TED Talks in Hindi.
