In the era where King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan is buying Sports team & other actors also like Abhishek Bacchan, Aamir is not showing his interest in this race. He refused to follow the footsteps of other Bollywood actors though he is big fan and supporter of sports. He is not keen to buy sports teams instead of it he would like to focus on films & wants to devote his time on it only. Aamir Khan told “I love sports. I love playing and watching sports but anything, which will take away me from films that I will never do. Usually people give three months to any sports in a year. In those 3 months, I will work on a film and that will give me more satisfaction and enjoyment. I support games and I loved watching the first match of Kabadi league. To support it, I don’t need to buy a team.”
