Mumbai: Saif Ali Khan, who is currently working on ‘Aarakshan’, a film looking at caste-based reservations and the politics around it, doesn`t like politics in real life.

"I can`t bear politics. I`m a little aware about it; I read the papers but I just feel that with the kind of politics this country has, it`s so difficult to keep everyone happy... it`s something very exhausting," said the 40-year-old.

"I think I`m in the right profession for me. Things keep changing every now and then in acting, but at least there is no politics here," he added.

Directed by Prakash Jha, ‘Aarakshan’ also features Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Manoj Bajpayee and Prateik. It is slated to release Aug 12.
