While Aamir played a teacher in Taare Zameen Par, SRK
essayed the role of a hockey coach in Chak De India. And
soon, Saqib will be seen as a skating coach in his forthcoming film
"If people make such a comparison, why should I have a problem?
I have only done four films and if I am compared to someone great
like him (Aamir Khan), it's a good thing for me," the 26-year-old
"But I am not inspired by anyone for the character. It is my
interpretation of a young 24-year-old coach. Comparisons will
happen, but it is a good thing for me. They are comparing me with
Aamir and some also with Shah Rukh Khan in 'Chak De...'.
For a young actor to be compared to such great (actors) is a great
thing," added the 'Mere Dad Ki Maruti' actor.
"It is a sports film. This is world's first film on inline
skating. Ultimately, it's an underdog story and everyone connects
with the underdog. Like in 'Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar,' when
Sanju wins the race it is a sense of feeling for everyone. So, the
audiences always connect with an underdog story," added
