Mika is on a song
Mika recently made a foray into acting in Punjabi films but the popular singer says he has no intentions to try his luck as an actor in Bollywood.
“Though I have acted in a couple of movies I don’t have any plans to pursue career as an actor. My singing career is going great and I need not change focus,” said Mika at an event in Delhi where he announced his collaboration with Miikey Electronics Inc., a company belonging to USA based entrepreneur, Eddie Malhotra. This partnership will result in the launch of the brand Rhythm by Mika. The first to come out of it are stereo wireless headsets some of which have the nod of Mika in terms of design. “As a music lover, I too love to enjoy music with my headsets. However, lack of quality wireless headsets is a drawback. This forced me to plan such a product which will be beneficial for one and all,” opined Mika.
In the last few years he has given a series of chartbusters but Mika feels nothing has changed much since he made his first appearance in 1998 with album “Saawan Mein Lag Gai Aag”. “In all these years, nothing has changed much. I am the same person that I was then. The only thing that has changed is my hair style. Earlier I used to have long hair,” he quipped.
His “Laila” song in Shootout At Wadala has become controversial because of the lyrics but Mika counters it rather philosophically. “It is not deliberate. Sometimes incorporating the language and words used by the common man becomes controversial.”
For now he is “excited” about singing for Sunny Deol for the first time in Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 .
