'I'm not competing with anyone'

I find Rajeev Khandelwal at his laptop, dutifully answering mounds of fan mail. "It's important to respond," he says, in earnest.

The star of Raj Kumar Gupta's Aamir, Rajeev has got some great reviews for his first big-screen performance. But the actor seems relaxed and composed, not affected by the hoopla at all.

In his drawing room, gifts from fans adorn every wall, shelf and table. There are framed photographs from his Left Right Left days, teddy-bears from adoring teenaged girls, various Aamir memorabilia and an assortment of other nicknacks.

He chatted with Rediff readers and talked about his transition from television to movies. He also gave advice to his fans, and thanked them at length.

Perhaps most importantly -- and ladies, listen up! -- he informs us that he's still very much single!

For those who missed the fun chat, here is the transcript.
