Many Bollywood actors are making their way into Hollywood as well as politics but superstar Shah Rukh Khan says he is happy acting in Indian movies and doesn't consider himself fit to be a part of politics.

"First of all, I have not been offered any Hollywood movie. I know a lot of people working in the production of Hollywood films. There are a lot of studios here, so we keep meeting the studio heads also. But I don't feel I have the USP of being in Hollywood," Shah Rukh told reporters here Friday.

The actor was here to speak at the HT Leadership Summit with his "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" co-star Katrina Kaif.

Shah Rukh, who has completed two decades in Hindi film industry, feels Hollywood has enough actors of his age and that he wants to dedicate his future to Bollywood only.

"I don't know kung fu. I'm not the greatest dancer. I'm not like a cool guy. I think they (Hollywood) have enough actors of my age. I desire to work in Indian films and be a part of Indian films in any which way I can. I dedicate my coming years to Indian cinema only," he said.

Asked if he plans to be a politician in future, Shah Rukh said: "I have been asked this question for the past many years. I know many politicians and have huge amount of respect for them. I talk a lot to them too, but politics is not my job profile."

"My job is to make films and entertain people through this medium. I just want that people, who are fed up of continuous ups and downs of the political world, breathe a sigh of relief and get entertained through my films," he added.

However, if he gets the chance to play a politician on-screen, Shah Rukh says he will love to play Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad.

    No politics - agreed! No hollywood - Why?! I would love to see him attain success even on that platform! Day Dreaming
    I so love the fact that he's so honest and not fake. He doesn't know himself how charismatic he is and that makes him all the way more charming!! HeartHeart

    SRK you might not be the best dancer, actor or the coolest guy but you definitely are the most classy, charming and charismatic person I've ever seen.
