Mumbai: Actor Rajeev Khandelwal says that being in the film industry is like an endless marathon and the one who survives till the end is the winner a la Amitabh Bachchan.
"I don`t believe in competition. So many films are being made in a year. In this industry, it`s the endless marathon and the one who survives till the end is the winner. Amitabh Bachchan is the biggest winner in today`s date," Rajeev told.
Since "Aamir", the 38-year-old has not done too many movies because he feels that one needs a lot of patience to do his kind of cinema that also includes titles like `Shaitan` and `Table No. 21`.
He said: "The kind of films that I do one needs a lot of patience and will power. You should not get tempted. I don`t want to go wrong in a hurry.
"The kind of films that I want to do is different and the scripts for those kind of films are not written often. Now things are changing and I hope in future I would get to do more films of my kind."
His next is `Samrat & Co` and he had to come out of his comfort zone to play a detective in the thriller coming out April 25.
"This was out of my comfort level. I have never played such a character ever. It was a challenging role for me. They have written altogether a separate script for `Samrat...`"
Directed by Kaushik Ghatak and produced by Rajshri Productions, "Samrat & Co" features Madalsa Sharma as the female lead.
