New Delhi, Sept. 17 -- At a recent event, Amitabh Bachchan said that singer-actor Mika Singh was capable of competing with him in the film industry. But ask Mika if he agrees with the statement, and he says, "It was nice of him to speak so highly of me. But no matter how many Mika Singhs enter the industry, no one can get close to the stature of Bachchan saab in this century."

Explaining why the senior actor cannot be compared to anyone else, the singer says, "Bachchan saab's songs like 'Rang barse', 'Jumma chumma' and 'Mere angne mein' are immortal. Though times have changed and songs have a short shelf-life these days, these are still loved. I don't think my numbers will stay for the next 50 years. No one can match him as a singer, dancer or actor. I idolise him."

Singh added that he was delighted when Bachchan said that his family is fond of Mika's work. Throwing light on the bond he shares with Big B, Mika says, "I have a great equation with him. Bachchan saab and I converse in Punjabi, and I trouble him a lot. I have been messaging him in Punjabi for the last seven years. It's very kind of him to reply to all of them."
