Actors turning singers is a new fad in B-town. And actors who have made to this category include Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir, Salman, SRK, Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt to name a few.
Joining the bandwagon of such actors-turned-singers is none other than B-town’s handsome hunk Sidharth Malhotra. Sidharth will be making his singing debut with ‘Bandook Meri Laila’ song from A GENTLEMAN. Reportedly he will be rapping in this fun peppy number in Haryanvi!
This is not the first time that an actor will be seen rapping in his own song, earlier we have seen Ranveer Singh rapping in ‘Aadat Se Majboor’ (LADIES VS RICKY BAHL)and Abhishek Bachchan in ‘Right Here Right Now’(BLUFFMASTER). Ranveer has become quite popular for his rapping in fact he even stars in Zoya Akhtar’s GULLY BOY which is based lives of street rappers from Mumbai chawl.
Talking about the actor’s rapping skills, lyricist Vayu who has penned this song was quoted saying in Mumbai Mirror as, “He was superb, like a professional rapper. This song is all about fun and reflects the film’s overall vibe.”
Whereas film’s music composer Jigar (Sachin-Jigar) revealed, “Sidharth has a great baritone which is rare in actors. We asked him what kind of music he likes and he said hip hop. Eminem is his favorite rapper. When we asked him to rap for the track, he immediately said yes. It’s a fun song.”
Well now that we know that Sidharth is going to rap in ‘Bandook Meri Laila’ song we just can’t wait for the release of this song.
