Mika, who has made a place for himself in playback singing with his Punjabi style and flamboyant attitude, says he is the trendsetter in Bollywood- what he does today, the world follows tomorrow.
"I have started a number of trends in Bollywood, whatever I do becomes a hit. I brought the Punjabi flavour into Bollywood music and other musicians are following it. Even Rahman has put the Punjabi effect in his latest song Chiggy Wiggy," Mika said on the sidelines of the auditions for Music Ka Maha Muqabla, a new reality show on Star Plus.
And that is just one of the many trends this 32-year-old singer claims to have set. The nasal-tone singing, made popular by Himesh Reshammiya, is also another style Mika claims to have introduced in Bollywood.
"Every film that I sing for becomes a hit. I sang the title track for Singh Is Kinng, which is Akshay Kumar's biggest hit till now. I also sang Mauja Hi Mauja for Jab We Met, which was such a big hit," said Mika.
His self-appraisal might be a put-off for many, but Mika is too confident to be affected by any amount of criticism.
