Mumbai: Director Kabir Khan says he looks up to superstar Aamir Khan for his body of work in Bollywood and appreciates his views on various contemporary issues.

"He (Aamir) is somebody I look up to...he is one of the finest and biggest actors our country has ever seen,"
Kabir told reporters here at an event.

"He talks about various issues and does films on them. I respect him and his views. He is a very dedicated actor.
There is a lot to look up to him," said the Bajrangi Bhaijaan director.

The two Bollywood personalities have never worked with each other but last year when Aamir got embroiled in the
"intolerance" controversy, Kabir came out in his support.

Kabir was speaking at actor Arshad Warsi's wife Maria Goretti's book launch. The couple hosted the book launch at a suburban restaurant and it was attended by Kabir and several other celebrities from B-town like Mini Mathur, Tusshar Kapoor, Homi Adajania, Sneha Ullal, Shirya Saran and others.

The Ek Tha Tiger helmer revealed he is a big foodie but not a great cook. "While we were shooting for Bajrangi
Bhaijaan I remember food used to come from Salman's house every day. At least 8 to 10 dishes that too for 40 people!"

"Salma aunty (Salman's mother) cooks amazing food. When we shoot in Mumbai or around Mumbai the food comes from Salman's house," he added.
