Actor-singer Ayushmann Khurrana impressed us all with his music in his debut movie Vicky Donor and now he is all set to launch a single. However, the actor is aware that independent music doesn't get enough attention in India.
Ayushmann will seen be releasing his own independent song titled 'O heeriye' under the Yash Raj Music label. "I think with independent music, it's difficult to grab more eyeballs in our country. You hardly get any support from music channels or radio stations. It is not even supported by the narrative of any film," said the talented Ayushmann.
The actor received high success for his song 'Paani da rang' in Vicky Donor and then his two other songs - 'Tu hi tu' and 'Saddi gali' from Nautanki Saala have faired well. Well, we now have to wait and watch to see the response for his single.
"I wouldn' t have got that support if I was not an actor or if my previous songs were not big hits. I think in India, cricket and cinema are two big entities and if you do something good in these two, then you are revered and you get this public support," Ayushmann explained.
'O heeriye' is a soft Punjabi rock track. This song is on similar lines as his earlier hits 'Paani da rang' and 'Saddi gali', but Ayushmann says it has completely different emotions attached to it. "It is different than the other two as far as the lyrics are concerned because 'Paani da rang' and 'Saddi gali' were more emotional. They were also in the heartbreak zone, but this one is quite happy. It's when you see a girl for the first time and fall in love and get into a steady relationship," he explained.
Asked if he plans to launch his own music album anytime soon, he said: "I think it's slightly difficult and impractical because I have other projects. I had a gap of 10 days, so I could come up with this song."
The 28-year-old also said that he had not planned on being multi-talented. It just happened to him "I think it's great if you have multiple talents. Although there was no intention to be multi-talented. I think even if you have one talent and you are giving your best to that, that is enough," he said.
