Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan on Friday refused to comment on the growing popularity of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) but admitted that people want change and there was angst all over the world.
"I will not comment on the AAP but I can say that people have angst against the system. People want change as there is no concern for the common man. There is angst all over the world," the actor said at a press conference here on the sidelines of the ongoing Jaipur Literature Festival.
"This is the reason why the party is getting such a good response," he added.
The 47-year-old actor also said he has no inclination of joining politics as of now.
"I can't juggle between two professions -- actor and a politician. I feel as an actor I am just born," he said.
The "Lunchbox" actor also pointed out how the country was having many distractions and losing its cultural roots.
"We have fast food culture now. There is too much of western influence in our lives," he said.
"We in India might think we are known in the world or have a presence or have been able to make a mark. Unfortunately that is not true. We, sitting here, might think that but once you are in some other country you struggle for the identity," he said.
