Aamir Khan is not going to follow the footsteps of his colleagues in Bollywood as the superstar says he will never become an owner of sports team. The 49-year-old actor, who is an ardent sports lover, said he would rather devote his time in filmmmaking because he gets maximum satisfaction while working on them.

"I love sports. I love playing and watching sports but anything, which will take away me from films that I will never do. Usually people give three months to any sports in a year. In that 3 months, I will work on a film and that will give me more satisfaction and enjoyment."

"I support the games and I love to watch during the first match of Kabadi league I was there, but to support it, I don't need to buy a team," Aamir told reporters.

Host of Bollywood actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Abhishek Bachchan, among others, who own various sports teams, are often seen juggling their two professions throughout the year.

Meanwhile, the star is busy promoting his upcoming film PK, which is directed by Rajkumar Hirani. The actor, who recently organised a private screening of the film, is happy that his mother enjoyed it. "Recently when I organised a private screening I called Ammi too. She liked PK. After screening she was getting late for namaz so she went and later she told me she enjoyed the film thoroughly. 'If anyone asked you to change anything do not listen to them. Don't change a bit,'" he said.

The actor added his youngest son Azaad is loving the trailers of PK. "He loved the trailer of PK whenever the funny scenes come on TV he laughs a lot," Aamir said.

PK, also starring Sanjay Dutt, Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput in pivotal roles, releases on December 19.
