AKRITI KAKAR and PIYUSH CHOPRA try to carve out a niche in Bollywood

What happens when a prodigious singing talent and an upcoming actor come together? They join hands, as Akriti Kakar and Piyush Chopra have done. Theyare bound together as both are trying to gain a foothold in Bollywood.Akriti Kakar is a trained Hindustani classical singer. She has two world tours to her name with Anandji of Kalyanji-Anandji fame. But she is still a newcomer since it's been only two years in the industry. Under Himmesh Reshammiya, she has sung different types of songs, like "Dil vich lagiya ve", "Shaka laka boom boom" and "Aanan faanan". She has also sung various songs and jingles in Telugu films. Her most challenging song has to be the title track of "Good Boy Bad Boy" where she sings for two characters in the same number.

Zee movie

On the other hand, Piyush Chopra is an affable boy whose connection with the glamour world started with modelling in college. After being one of the top ten contestants in the Gladrags Model Hunt, he opted for Zee's "Cinestar ki Khoj". He stuck through the contest and won. Though the competition was hard he worked on his rough edges. And eventually, he won the judges' confidence and much-needed public support. Now he is working on a movie, "Pyaar Hai To Keh do Yes" sponsored by Zee. As the name suggests it is a love story.Both the upcoming artists have an innate ability to bestars but not behave like them, at least not yet.
