Over the years, there have been quite a few singers who have given a shot to acting. Their music gives them an entry ticket to the acting department. Singer Shaan had put on his dancing shoes for the television dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa. Now he is all set to put a foot to being an actor. He is looking forward to make his acting debut with comedy movie Balwinder Singh Famous Ho Gaya. Shaan is currently shooting for the film which is directed by Sunil Agnihotri. The movie also stars another singer-turned-actor Mika Singh.
The 40-year-old singer is thrilled about becoming an actor. "I
am excited about acting in a movie. The title is Balwinder Singh
Famous Ho Gaya, it is a light comedy. Acting has always been on my
mind and I always wanted to give it a shot," Shaan said.
Shaan is currently busy with Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and is being touted as one of the strong contenders. "The idea of doing this show was to try something new but at the same time not becoming a laughing stock. I was open to dancing and wanted to groove a little but I never thought I will be competing with professional dancers. It is a difficult job," he added.
Shaan admits that is he is feeling guilty that he is not spending enough time with his family because of the show. "Family life has taken a back seat. I used to always take my kids out during their summer break but this time we didn't go anywhere. So I feel very guilty about it. But they are very supportive and more than thrilled to see me perform on TV," he added.
Shaan doesn't want to sit and wait for a project. He wants to be active and do what he always wanted to. "By now, I have done my work as a singer, earned my respect and now to go on waiting for a phone call for next project is not my thing. I would rather be a little pro active and do things that I always wanted to do."
