Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, who is riding high on the success of "Singh Is Bliing", said that he has a "healthy jealousy" for the Khans of Bollywood.

Akshay is considered to be in close competition with Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan as far as box office hits are concerned, but the actor asserted that he never does anything with the intention of beating them at anything.

In an interview with Hindustan Times, Akshay was asked if he keeps a track of his competition with Salman, Shah Rukh and Aamir and the superstar stated that he does keep a track of what they do, but does not really compete with them. 

"I keep track of their films and philanthropic activities only out of respect for them, and to know what they are doing in life. I don't follow their moves so that I can beat them to it or anything as desperate as that. I never look at their successes and go, 'Damn! That should have been me'. I look at them and think, 'Come on Akshay, if you want to stay in this industry, you better show your fans that you are worth it. Healthy jealousy is the best jealousy. I look at them and think, 'Wow, what a shot, what a film or what a kind gesture," said the "Singh Is Bliing" actor.

Akshay, who has worked with Salman in a couple of movies, also talked about his equation with the "Sultan" actor. "Our equation is one of the most honest ones in the industry. We let each other do our own thing and admire each other's work from a distance. We have always had each other's backs. Plus, we have an on-screen chemistry that not many can match. Salman is one actor I love doing movies with," said Akshay.

While Akshay's "Singh Is Bliing" was released on 2 October, Salman has a couple of upcoming movies -- "Sultan" and "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo". Shah Rukh's forthcoming films include, "Dilwale", "Raees" and "Fan", while Aamir will next be seen in "Dangal".
