However, more than making money for myself, I want Hindi films to make more money. ‘Bahubali 2’ has done a great business and it has shown the potential. We are definitely on the right track and there is no reason why our films should not be doing as well as China’s. I would also try to put my best foot forward, be the best entertainer and put a mark on the world stage.` On being asked to choose between Alauddin Khalji and Baji Rao, the actor known for his quirky remarks, said that he would choose Baji Rao over Khalji because Baji Rao was a better person than Khalji.
