Shah Rukh Khan's home banner production, BILLU may have had an insignificant run at the box office, but one person who is simply elated with the movie and its after effects is playback singer Ajay Jhingran. A highly talented and versatile person, Ajay had been languishing in the unknown horizon even after having lent his vocals to some highly acclaimed projects like Sudhir Mishra's HAZAARON KHWAISHEIN AISI and KHOYA KHOYA CHAAND and the sleeper hit, Shyam Benegal's WELCOME TO SAJJANPUR.

CHECK OUT: Despite the hype, BILLU doesn't entice audience

However, the big commercial hit tag which could have made Ajay a household name is still missing, but with BILLU title track, "Billu Bhayankar" having hit the charts, it appears that Ajay has finally got recognition. Ajay thanks Shah Rukh and Pritam for providing him the opportunity and choosing him as the lead singer when there were more commercially viable singers in Bollywood. Says Ajay, ''BILLU is the turning point of my career. Now wherever I go to perform people recognize me as the lead singer of BILLU and appreciate me that is truly fulfilling.''

Not many will know that Ajay Jhingran is an able lyricist too and has written lyrics for films like RAKHT, PAGE 3 and HAZAARON KHWAISHEIN AISI. But the talented Jhingran is not happy with the present day lyricists and says, ''Earlier people used to write with passion, now they write with fashion in mind!''

That was really satirical humour. Here's wishing this lyricist-cum-singer from the furniture city of Saharanpur (U.P) all the best for his future projects!
