Ed Sheeran is all set to make his debut in a sequel to Bollywood blockbuster Happy New Year, it has been reported.
The Thinking Out Loud hitmaker, who was recently spotted partying with actors and directors from Bollywood in Mumbai, has agreed to appear in the film which was one of the biggest hits last year, the Mirror reported.
The 24-year-old singer will star in the film which will again see Bollywood choreographer-turned director Farah Khan at the helm of affairs.
Ask Farah about this and she says, "It was a surprise when my cousin Zubin called me from London to say that Ed Sheeran was going to be in town and wanted to meet up with me and my Bollywood friends. It was very gracious of Abhishek to let me bring Ed and his team to his home for a party," Farah adds, "Not only did Ed hit it off with Abhishek, but before I left, they both also decided that Ed would act in Happy New Year 2."
An insider reveals, "Farah made Ed meet Abhishek and the two got along very well. They discussed music and football. Abhishek is particularly fond of hip-hop music and the two chatted about it for long." They partied till late in the night.
