Akshay Kumar is like 'bhagwan' in my life: singer B Praak
Singer and composer B Praak can't stop talking while thanking Bollywood Superstar Akshay Kumar for starring in the music video of his last song 'Filhall' , which has registered more than 200 million visits in Youtube .
I am very fortunate that Akshay, sir, made his music video debut with me. I can not be more grateful. Woh humari zindagi me bhagwan ki tarah aaye hain (He came to my life as a god). I feel blessed to have worked with him, B Praak told IANS.
This is the first time that Akshay has starred in a music video and the video, by the way, also marks the screen debut of Kriti Sanon the sister of Nupur Sanon .
The song has received so much love from the audience. I cannot express in words how I feel. I even met Akshay sir and personally thanked him. When I told him that I owed him a lot, and that is a small word of thanks to express gratitude, he joked and said: 'your vadda karke keh of thanks fir' (make your thanks great, then), said B Praak.
The singer recently made his debut as a Bollywood playback singer recently, recording the song Teri mitti for the Akshay Kumar -starrer 'Kesari'.
Even as 'Filhall' makes waves, the Punjabi singer is gearing up for a new track in Akshay's upcoming film 'Good Newwz'. He recently also lent his voice to the 'Bharat salaam' song for ' Mumbai Hotel '.
On gradually carving a niche in Bollywood, B Praak shared: It feels great to see how Bollywood is welcoming artistes from different regions with open arms.
I added: I feel now there is no difference between Bollywood and Pollywood (colloquial reference to the Punjabi film industry). What matters most is your talent. It feels good that people have accepted me and my work here. In fact, I brought my music to the industry, so it feels good to see people in showbiz are liking it. It's been a great start but I have a long way to go.
