"Directed by Amole Gupte, Hawaa Hawaai stars Partho Gupte in the role of a young boy who aspires to become a skating champion."
Mumbai, April 23 - Saqib Saleem is just four movies old and people have already started comparing the young actor to suprestars like Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. Saqib is undoubtedly enjoying it.

While Aamir played a teacher in Taare Zameen Par, SRK essayed the role of a hockey coach in Chak De India. And soon, Saqib will be seen as a skating coach in his forthcoming film Hawaa Hawaai.

If people make such a comparison, why should I have a problem? I have only done four films and if I am compared to someone great like him -, it's a good thing for me, the 26-year-old said here Tuesday in an interview.

But I am not inspired by anyone for the character. It is my interpretation of a young 24-year-old coach. Comparisons will happen, but it is a good thing for me. They are comparing me with Aamir and some also with Shah Rukh Khan in 'Chak De...'. For a young actor to be compared to such great - is a great thing, added the Mere Dad Ki Maruti actor.

He also said that Hawaa Hawaai is a sports film about the underdogs.

It is a sports film. This is world's first film on inline skating. Ultimately, it's an underdog story and everyone connects with the underdog. Like in 'Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar,' when Sanju wins the race it is a sense of feeling for everyone. So, the audiences always connect with an underdog story, said Saqib.

Directed by Amole Gupte, Hawaa Hawaai stars Partho Gupte in the role of a young boy who aspires to become a skating champion.

The movie hits theatres May 9.
