MUMBAI -- Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who has achieved immense success in his four-decade-old career, says he is not incomparable.

"I don't believe that I am incomparable and I am the owner of any big titles. Every day is a learning experience. Everyday I see there are shortcomings in me. You learn from working with the younger generation who are very proficient," Bachchan, who turned 73 today, told reporters here.

The Don (1978) star feels there should be no comparison between Indian cinema and Hollywood.

"To compare ourselves with other (west) industry is a very natural and normal phenomena. We appreciate what the west does. We appreciate the way they make movies. However, we need to be proud about our own industry and our own talent. The degree of talent that exists in our artistes both in technology and creative field is huge," he said.

The Naseeb (1981) star feels earlier the dancing and singing part from Indian films was criticised but now the film industry abroad looks upto Indian cinema.

"There was a time for many many years when the western world didn't look upon us too kindly. They didn't like the way our films were made. They didn't like the dance and singing routine. They are economically more superior to us. Now they have understood what our circumstances are and they are appreciating our kind of cinema as well. They see the values that we bring in our stories. Besides they see the great amount of technology that we have today," the Sholay (1975) actor said.
