Talking about competition with the two actors (Salman and Akshay) on the small screen, SRK said that he is not competing with any of his contemporaries, reports PTI. "To be very 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," PTI quoted SRK as saying.
"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 India: Nayi Soch) 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 Bigg Boss 11 and Akshay is hosting The Great Indian Laughter Challenge. But this show is different and unrelatable," Shah Rukh added.
