"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 said here Tuesday in an interview.
"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.
He also said that "Hawaa Hawaai" is a sports film about the underdogs.
"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," said Saqib.
The movie hits theatres May 9.
