"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 to him," the 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' director said.

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.

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

Arshad is happy his wife Maria, who is a great cook, has finally come up with her own book.
