He came, he saw, and he made friends with the biggest names in Bollywood. Last week, after Shah Rukh Khan hosted a party in his honour, Jermaine Jackson, the brother of the late King of Pop, is all praises for King Khan’s hospitality. “His party was good fun. The food was amazing and I interacted with several Bollywood stars. Priyanka Chopra is very beautiful,” he says. About his growing friendship with King Khan, he says, he found SRK “humble and nice.” He adds, “Shah Rukh and I are planning a holiday together when he comes down to the US.”
Prior to his first India visit, Jermaine’s one-point contact in Bollywood was his ex-Big Brother housemate Shilpa Shetty. “Shilpa’s like a sister to me and we were each other’s support throughout the show. We kept in touch even after the show ended,” he says.
Having been in India for three weeks now, the singer is happy at the successful completion of the video, which brought him here. “I wrote this song, Let’s go to crystal city that we later changed to Let’s go to Mumbai city. We shot the video in different locations across Mumbai. It was a great experience to see the Taj Mahal Hotel, the Gateway of India, the slums and railway stations. We even went to a mosque,” he says.
Having worked on the video with musician Adnan Sami, he says, “I’d [originally] planned to do this song with my brother, Michael.”
