'Not here to influence but entertain the audience'
The 26-year-old singer, Ammy Virk is earning name and fame with the magical voice he has and the acting skills he showcases in Punjab film industry.

"We cannot keep making one kind of songs because no one would listen to it all the time," he further states.

Ammy believes that no one can teach people to follow something. He says that people who want to drink, drive cars or take drugs won't wait for the singers or filmmakers to influence them to do so, they will do it somehow because that it what they want. "My songs about cars, girls or drugs aren't the reason for them to be influenced. It will serve as an excuse for their deeds," he mentioned.

He says that he is happy that he isn't limited to singing but is expanding his horizons, trying different things in the industry, experimenting with his skills.
