Composer-singer Himesh Reshammiya says he failed as an actor because he was not dedicated to the craft. However, he is confident about his forthcoming thriller The Xposé.

"I failed because I was not dedicated as an actor. The kind of dedication, which was needed, was missing in all my films," Reshammiya told IANS.
From his debut movie Aap Kaa Surroor - The Real Luv Story to Karzzzz - none could create a buzz at the box office.
"When my films didn't work, I wondered what was wrong in my acting graph, and then I realised the dedication I had for music, I didn't have the same for acting. So, I have given my dedication to my performance in 'Xpose'," he added.
In the past, the critics ripped his films apart, but the singer-actor says he has not received any negative comments so far on The Xpose, coming out May 16.
Directed by Ananth Mahadevan, The Xpose also stars Sonali Raut, Zoya Afroz and Honey Singh among others.
"I have not received criticism for the film and if at all I get criticism, let's see. This whole game of hit and flops will always be there and I have survived because I am hit. I think industry works on hit and flop.
"I have given many hit songs and as an actor only one film worked, three to four films didn't click, but I am sure this film will work," said the composer of hits like Namastey London and Aitraaz.
