Pak artist Atif Aslam to make Bollywood acting debut
Having carved a niche for himself in Bollywood music, Pakistani singing sensation Atif Aslam is now ready to give competition to the actors in the Hindi film industry.
“I am getting offers from the past couple of years and probably you will be finding me in something by the end of this year or beginning of next year,” Atif told media persons, when asked about his plans for acting in Bollywood.
Best known for crooning chartbusters like Pehli Nazar Mein, Tu Jaane Na, Wo Lamhey, Aadat and Tere Bin, the 32-year-old star was in Kolkata recently to perform at the MTV Bollyland concert.
Aslam made his acting debut with Pakistani film Bol in 2011 and since then he has been flooded with offers from Bollywood but he resisted the temptation.
Besides a magical voice, his looks also have made him very popular among girls.
Stating that he has not yet signed anything, the singer said that he is interested in a dark or a romantic role in a film, which is about love and music.
“I am excited about both (kind of roles),” he said without naming the producers who have offered him the roles.
On the music front, Aslam, whose previous three albums Jalpari, Doorie and Meri Kahani were huge hits, would be back with a new one later by the end of this year.
