Himesh Reshammiya’s previous acting venture, Kajraare, sank without a trace, but the actor-music composer-singer isn’t giving up yet.
Himesh is all set to return to the silver screen with the romantic comedy Damadamm, this Diwali. After composing music for several films, Himesh decided to turn actor and went on to star in Aap Kaa Surroor, Karzzzz, Radio and ‘Kajraare’. Undeterred by the failure of his films, Himesh says he will get “back into the race” with his new film that takes inspiration from the comedy kings of yesteryears, “I have been a huge Hrishikesh Mukerjee fan and wanted to do a truly entertaining light hearted comedy made with a lot of honesty and sincerity which somehow my previous films lacked.” He praises director Swapna Waghmare with, “I think after Imtiaz Ali, Anurag Basu & Anand Rai, the next director from the television industry who will hit the bulls eye in films will be Swapna Joshi.”
Himesh, who attended a 40-day workshop for the film, sees no problem with the fact that his film might clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s superhero film, RA.One, at the box-office, “There can’t be any comparison as Shah Rukh Khan is the Badshah of Bollywood and ‘RA. One’ will be surely the best film of the year but since ‘Damadamm’ is in a sweet comedy zone there is always room to watch a feel good entertainer on Diwali if its content is strong which I’m very sure of this time.”
We wish him all the luck.
