I am driven by insecurity and the fear that someone might not like my work.Prof Vasanthi Srinivasan moderated the discussion as part of Vista-2022, the IIMB's business fest.Khan said he is motivated by a desire to please people better and that he doesn't want anybody to see a weaker moment in my life as an actor.We all have shortcomings, and I have mine.

It's the desire to do better and show a better side of yourself.Khan explained how to remain relevant and get going at 57 years old, but in my head I'm still 18 years old.I am also working to be more relevant to young people.I do films for kids on occasion because if a five-year-old loves your film, he will be loyal to you for the next 15 years.

That keeps me relevant to a younger audience.
