Among many films starring Govinda,one that Khan has seen a dozen times is ‘Sandwich’.

“I have seen his film ‘Sandwich’ some 10 or 12 times,” Khan said.

Directed by Anees Bazmee ‘Sandwich’ starred Govinda along with Raveena Tondon and Mahima Chaudhary and was released in 2006.

Without mentioning names of his contemporaries like Shah Rukh and Salman Khan,the actor said he does not like being0 compared with anyone.

“I m not comparing myself with anyone. I think they are all very successful and popular and doing films that have received a lot of viewership and have entertained a lot of people including me,” the 45-year-old star said.

Asked if his recent films like ‘Taare Zameen Par’,’3 Idiots’ and ‘Peepli Live’ are a step towards parallel cinema,Khan said he did not see cinema in commercial and parallel terms.

“For me its a mass media and I only d films that excite me. It should be economically viable and people investing money should not lose.”
