This week Honey Singh makes his debut as a leading man in the Punjabi film Main Tera Bai Tu Mera Bai where he will display his comic skills alongside Punjabi star Amrinder Gill.
Speaking sheepishly about what he calls his reluctant role as an actor Honey says, `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. But I 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.`
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 says he 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 the 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. Woh hilaa ke rakh dega Bollywood ko.You mark my words, ` predicts Bohra.
