Bollywood’s King Khan Shah Rukh Khan, who will be soon seen in his upcoming show TED Talks India Nayi Soch, remarked that he does not plan on competing with Akshay Kumar or Salman Khan on the small screen.
He further said that his contemporaries are doing “wonderfully well”.
Dabangg actor Salman is currently hosting the season 11 of controversial reality show, Bigg Boss, while Akshay is the super judge on 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 while speaking to media at the launch of the event.
“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.”
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 a TED Talks’ has created over the years,” he added.
This is the first time TED is collaborating with a major network to produce a TV series featuring original “TED Talks” in Hindi.
