There’s nothing fascinating or new to note that a singer also tends to make a debut in the Hindi Film industry. There’ve been the likes of the great and one of a kind Sonu Nigam, famous for Deewana (a 1999 album) who ventured into Bollywood albeit without much success. Of late, we’ve seen singer-turned-comedians as well as comedians who can do both- sing and make one smile- venture into Hindi movies. The likes of the inimitable Kapil Sharma and Sudesh Lehri, both of whom hail from Punjab have made their name in the Bollywood film industry. Then there’s the irrepressible Himesh Reshamiya, a personality you can take out of Bollywood but one from whom you cannot take Bollywood out of! Over the years, his songs have become a household name, as have the recent hits of the famous ‘Patola’ singer Guru Randhawa, who, as news report suggest, will be soon making his Hindi Film debut.
So following on the tracks of famous Punjabi singers in the past that have become established in the film industry, much like Diljit Dosanjh (remembered for movies like Phillauri, Soorma, now one will get to see the prominent and successful singer Guru Randhawa getting to star in front of the camera, just the kind of news that tens of thousands of fans of the famous Punjabi singer would’ve wanted to hear (at least, at some point in time of the young man’s career).
That being told, the following news updates were covered in related to Guru Randhawa’s future film debut on popular publication Bollywood Hungama:
