I`m looking forward to my English film: Himesh Reshammiya
Mumbai: Composer-singer-actor Himesh Reshammiya is trying his hand at comedy in "Damadamm!" and says he has a good sense of humour -- contrary to people`s perception. He also is looking forward to his English film in which he plays a musician.
"People perceive me as a very serious person, which I am not in real life. I have a good sense of humour, which will be visible in this film," Himesh told IANS in an interview.
The actor is also looking forward to break acting and musical grounds internationally with his English film "A* Is Killed" and album "Da Edge" respectively.
After acting in films like "Aap Kaa Surroor", "Karzzzz", "Radio" and "Kajraare", Himesh is excited about the new phase in his career.
"I`m really looking forward to my English film where I`m playing the role of Siddharth Patel," said the 38-year-old.
The film, directed by Chrisophe Lenoir, is set for a December release and features Himesh as a musician.
His other international project, the music album "Da Edge", will release this month in 122 countries under his own banner HR music, in collaboration with Universal music.
"My album has 15 songs and the first single is `I have been waiting for you so long`. It has been remixed by Edward Maya, the famous trance DJ. Roman White, who directs videos for Justin Bieber, is the video director," he said.
For now, Himesh, who did a live digital concert for his fans on artistaloud.com Thursday, is waiting for the release of "Damadamm!".
"It`s a Diwali release and though it is releasing amid huge competition like `RA.One`, I`m very confident that it will make a mark. I`m confident about it as a product and as a storyline because I know that the central character Sameer, played by me, will instantly connect with the audience. It`s a very real character and it`s a fun-loving romantic film," he added.
The film, directed by Swapna Waghmare, also stars Sonal Sehgal and Purbi Joshi in lead roles.
Although the actor is confident about the film, he admits he is under pressure to prove his acting mettle after three box-office flops -- "Karzzz", "Radio" and "Kajraare".
"I`m growing as an actor, so there is pressure as an actor on me. Even when I did `Aap Ka Suroorr`, people had reservations about my acting, but it did very well. So I`m confident about this film too," he said.
