The superstar, who has completed two decades in Hindi films, believes Hollywood has enough actors of his age.

Many Hindi film actors are making their way to Hollywood as well as politics, but superstar Shah Rukh Khan says he is happy acting in Indian films and does not consider himself fit to be in 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," Khan told reporters here today.

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

Khan, who has completed two decades in Hindi films, believes Hollywood has enough actors of his age and he wants to dedicate his future to only Bollywood.

"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 enter politics in the future, he 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."

However, if he gets the chance to play a politician on-screen, Khan said he would love to play Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad.
