Suniel Shetty says rather than resenting the success of his contemporaries, he seeks inspiration from their achievements.
"I am mentally very secure. Financially, there will be ups and downs. I have been saying no (to films) so I am not seen enough but that's okay," the actor told PTI.
The 55-year-old actor says his contemporaries are doing much better work today and he is happy for them.
"People like Salman, Shah Rukh, Akshay, Ajay Devgn, Aamir Khan inspire me. And more so Salman, Ajay and Akshay as I am close to them," he said.
Suniel will be now seen on the big screen after a gap of three years with "Reloaded", starring Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez, and choreographer-turned-director Bosco Martis's "Circus".
Apart from these two projects, the actor says he is also working in a silent film.
He would be also seen as a reality show "India's Asli Champion..Hai Dum!", to be aired on &TV channel.
