The race to be on the top does not bother ­singer-actor Gippy Grewal because he feels that “competition is just in ­people’s mind”. “It can get to you in any field, not just films. It’s very important to focus on your own work,” says Grewal.
Grewal has given hit tracks such as Angrezi Beat and acted in movies such as Double Di Trouble (2014) and Best Of Luck (2013). The actor-musician further tells us, “When I started working, I explored various genres of music and then decided what I want to do. Unfortunately, the concept of competition is fed to children the moment they go to school.”
Talking about his approach to work, Grewal says, “I have always paid attention to what fans want. I never thought about what others are doing and if I should copy them. When you start looking at what others are doing, then your downfall starts,” he says. The 32-year-old actor, who recently made his Bollywood debut in the movie Second Hand Husband alongside actor Govinda’s daughter Tina Ahuja, is in no hurry to join Bollywood’s Rs 100 crore club.
“I am not part of the Rs 100 crore film, I just want my film to be good. What is the point in making a Rs 200 crore film when small budget films with strong content are ­taking away all the praise,” he says. Talking about the kind of projects he wants to take up, he says, “I want to do films for that section of audience which makes an effort to go and watch a movie in the ­theatres and spend their hard-earned money to get entertained.”
