Kapil Sharma wishes to sing for A.R. Rahman
Mumbai: Comedian-actor Kapil Sharma loves to sing and wishes to work with Oscar-winning music director A.R. Rahman in the near future.
Kapil said earlier in his career, he wanted to be a singer. Asked if after gaining popularity and a steady fan following, he wants to pursue singing more seriously, Kapil told IANS here: "I love singing. In fact, I sang as a playback singer in 'Love Punjab'. As I am a huge Rahman fan, and dreamed to work with him when sir came on my show I sang a song in front of him.
"He asked me if I am interested in singing. He said he liked my singing and some day, he will make me sing."
The comedian, who hails from Amritsar, has grown up listening to Punjabi songs.
"I love Punjabi folk songs. That is a treasure which should be explored more. I know that Punjabi songs are very popular worldwide but the folk genre is still unexplored, especially the kind of songs I have grown up with."
Kapil has no formal training in singing but has grown up listening to tracks by a range of artistes like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Wadali Brothers and Gurdas Maan. He said that helped him to develop an ear for good music.
Currently, the actor is looking forward to the release of his film 'Firangi'.
