It seems that acting bug has bitten singer Mika Singh, as he joins the league of those singers including Sonu Nigam, Babul Supriyo and Himesh Reshamiya, who have tried their luck before camera earlier with moderate successes.
Popular singer Mika Singh, who was here in Kolkata, on Saturday, for the launch of the online service of SKP Stock Broking Private Limited, said that he will soon make his acting debut with singer turned actor Shaan.
"I am working on a project named 'Balwinder Singh Famous Ho Gayee', where I will be sharing the screen space with singer turned actor Shaan. The film will release next year."
The launch of the online service was followed by a concert organized by the same company and a well known club of the city.
Speaking about the concert, the powerhouse entertainer said: "After 'Paglu' (hit Bengali film, where Mika has sung the title track), I have done many shows in Kolkata. Within the span of one year I have done almost twelve to thirteen shows."
"In today's concert I will pay tribute to late actor Rajesh Khanna and Dev Anand," added Mika.
When Mika was asked about performing any of Kishore Kumar's song in the concert, as it was the birth anniversary of the legendary singer, Mika said: "I will perform few of Kumar's song. How can I forget the voice behind these legendary actors?"
Talking about the success he shares with his elder brother, pop-Punjabi singer Daler Mahndi, he said: "We are enough lucky to be so much successful in life. It is our parents´ blessings that both of us are here. There are hardly any brothers like us, who have been so successful in life."
The singer also added that hard work is needed to succeed in life.
