Hitting out at Aamir Khan for taking potshots at his marketing skills,superstar Shah Rukh Khan on Wednesday said he did not like to hear from others as to what he should be doing.

“I do not like people who compliment me seriously or deride me seriously. Aamir is a good thinking man and I will discus with him what comments he has made about me. Maybe they were out of context,” Shah Rukh,who spent the day doing a series of promotional events for his home production ‘Billu’ releasing this Friday told reporters in Mumbai.

“I may not be a good marketing person but people who know me say that I am a fantastic person,” he said.

Aamir had said recently said that Shah Rukh is a good PR person but not a good marketing man.

To a question on why he immediately agreed to drop ‘Barber’ from the film’s name on the eve of the release,he said,”I make a film to make everyone happy. There is no intention of hurting anyone. I may be legally correct on the title but representatives of the Salon and Hairdressers Association were very emotional. If the film is good,audience will come to watch it irrespective of the title. I hope nobody objects to name ‘Billu’. I don’t know what I will do then.”

He also told about his plans to create his official website. “I want to be as innovative as possible,” he said,referring to portal he started few years ago.

“The idea was ahead of the times. This is a good excuse to say if the initiative has closed down because it did not have any takers. But I do plan to create my website,” he said,adding he will have enough time to think on these lines creatively while recuperating from shoulder surgery.

When asked about actors taking to blogging,Shah Rukh said it was a good medium to clarify misunderstandings.

“Through media,I get what I want conveyed to my fans. So I don’t think there is anything more to write. If I start blogging,I will talk about life to youngsters rather than writing about my daily routine and posting pictures,” he said.
