I am not capable enough to compete with Big B: Aamir
Mumbai: Two big films–Aamir Khan`s upcoming home production `Delhi Belly` and megastar Amitabh Bachchan`s `Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap`–are slated to hit the screens on Friday but the actor-producer says he does not consider Big B as competition.
"I think every film has its share of space in the audience. I am a huge fan of Amitabh Bachchan and I don`t think I am even on the same platform as him. I don`t sense any competition with him. In fact, I feel I am not capable enough to compete with him," Aamir told PTI.
Produced by Aamir Khan Productions, `Delhi Belly`, an adult comedy, stars nephew Imran Khan, Vir Das, Kunal Roy Kapur, Poorna Jagannathan and Shenaz Treasuryvala.
`Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap`, produced by AB Corp, stars Amitabh, Prakash Raj, Hema Malini, Raveena Tandon, Charmy Kaur, Minissha Lamba and Sonal Chauhan in the lead roles.
Interestingly, both Aamir and Big B share similar opinion about the fate of their films.
Recently, Big B had said on his blog that, "We make films in this very homogenous industry not to compete or destroy or wage war with our compatriots…Aamir and his production company are much bigger than me and my AB Corp in commercial standing."
To which Aamir had said, "He (Amitabh) is being generous to say so. But I must say I am a huge fan of him. I feel he is much bigger as an actor. He is a bigger brand. I wish `Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap` to do ten times better than `Delhi Belly`."
In `Delhi Belly` Aamir will be seen in a retro look of the 1980s disco era in an item song — `I Hate You…Like I Love You..` While in `Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap` actress Raveena will be seen doing an item song ? `Main Chandigarh Di Star`.
