Honey Singh turns hero, tries comedy

Mumbai, Jan 21, 2013 (IANS)

Honey Singh, who courted controversies for his songs allegedly based on sexual themes, makes his debut as a leading man in Punjabi film "Main Tera Bai Tu Mera Bai".

He will display his comic skills alongside Punjabi star Amrinder Gill in the movie and says it is just one-off project.

Speaking about what he calls his reluctant role as an actor, Honey  Singh said: "Frankly, I don’t think I’m ready to get into acting as yet. I still have a long way to go as a a musician."


Honey Singh had done a cameo in another Punjabi film 'Mirza'. "And when this director-friend of mine, Amit Prasher, offered me the lead in a comedy about two brothers, I refused. But he was hurt. He said, ‘Tu doosre ki picture kar sakta, mera nahin?’ I had to say yes,” he added.

Honey had a ball romancing the burlesque.

“It was fun doing the film. It’s out-and-out comedy about two brothers from Canada and their adventures in Punjab. But there’s also an underlying message about Indian values and family ties. Hanste-hanste film bahot kuch keh jaata hai (the film has something serious to say amidst the laughter).”

Honey won’t be accepting acting offers for now even if "Main Tera Bai Tu Mera Bai" turns into a blockbuster.

“I’ve just begun to explore the musician in me. It will be a long time before I feel confident to make the jump into acting like Himesh Reshammiya did,” says Honey.
Incidentally, producer Sunil Bohra already has plans of buying the rights of "Main Tera Bai Tu Mera Bai" to remake it into Hindi.

Bohra insists he will cast only Honey Singh in the lead.

“He is a natural-born actor with an instinctive flair for comedy. He will rock Bollywood. You mark my words,” predicts Bohra.
