Salman's 'Jai Ho' is slated to release next month.

With Bollywood witnessing a trend of setting box office records these days, superstar Salman Khan says he does not have the ego to outrank the business records of Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan's films.

"I believe a film should be good. The promo should be the deciding factor for people whether they want to see the film or not. It (promo) should be good enough so that people would want to see the film," Salman said here last night during the trailer launch of his upcoming film 'Jai Ho'.

"Today it is about Rs 200 crore, 300 crore or 400 crore but I don't see it that way. There is no ego that if Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir's film has done 'x' business, then my film should also do so and cross it (the record mark)," he said.

"I wish and hope everybody's film should do well so that the business is more, industry grows, etc," he said.

Salman did not have any film release this year, while SRK gave his biggest hit 'Chennai Express' in 2013, which earned Rs 226 crore at the box office in India. Aamir's 'Dhoom 3' is yet to release.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's romantic drama 'Ram-Leela', featuring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, has reportedly earned Rs 100 crore at the box office. Even Prabhudeva's 'R...Rajkumar', with Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha, is also doing good business.

When asked if there is any pressure to break the ecord of 'Ram-Leela' and 'R...Rajkumar', he quipped, "If these are good films then I don't want 'Jai Ho' to be in good film category."

Notably, Salman is seen wearing a hat these days given by his actor-friend Aamir Khan to promote the latter's upcoming film 'Dhoom 3'.

"Since the time I have started wearing Aamir's hat, I am getting those kind of genius marketing ideas for film. I hope 'Jai Ho' creates 'Dhoom'," he said on a lighter note.

Salman's 'Jai Ho' is slated to release next month.
