Mumbai: Telugu cinema star Nagarjuna says he has no problem in welcoming Salman Khan's Hindi film "Tiger Zinda Hai" alongside his son Akhil Akkineni's Telugu movie "Hello" on Friday.

"How can we oppose the release of a Hindi film just because it is expected to be a success? That's not healthy competition. In my times, so many of my Telugu films were dubbed and released in Hindi," said Nagarjuna.

"At that time, nobody opposed my dubbed appearance in Mumbai's theatres. So now when Bollywood films, or for that matter Hollywood spectacles, are our competition we should be thinking of equalling not killing the competition," he added.
