I can never compete with Amitabh Bachchan: Aamir Khan

Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan

Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is all praises for megastar Amitabh Bachchan and says he can never compete with the senior actor.

Aamir, who is known as Mr Perfectionist in B-town, does not think he is anywhere close to Big B and holds him in "high esteem".

"I don't feel I am on the same platform as him, I am not even anywhere close. I can't compete with him because I hold him in such high esteem," Aamir, 47, said in a statement.

The 'Talaash' star was in the race for Big CBS Prime's 'India's Prime Icon' title along with Bachchan, but has failed to make it to the top three.

Bachchan, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and ace cricketer Sachin Tendulkar are currently battling it out as the Top 3 contenders for the title.
