It was music that mattered the most to this young Punjabi star-in-the-making -- thanks to father Hans Raj Hans -- till he got a "surprise" call to act in Yaar Anmulle. His role in the film fetched him the best male debut award at the 5th Punjabi Film Festival.
Yuvraj Hans, 25, who has just finished canning his second Punjabi film, Burrraah, gets chatty about his new character and upcoming debut music album.
On his character in Burrraah, Yuvraj says, "While I played a straightforward and simple guy in Yaar Anmulle, here I play a rowdy and boisterous guy who is a spoilsport."
Yuvraj, who will take a break before he resumes work, adds on a philosophical note, "It was as if destiny wanted me to be an actor. One fine day I got a call from Batra Productions asking if I wanted to be a part of their film. I was not convinced, but director Anurag Singh told me that the character suited me and that I shall have to do it for my dad; that's how I signed the film and got a very positive response from audience."
Though Yuvraj is getting many offers, he is not signing on the dotted line as of now: "I have offers from Bollywood as well the Punjabi film industry but I want to do films which inspire youngsters to do good for the society."
Yuvraj is also busy adding finishing touches to his Punjabi music album titled Yuvraj. "The album, which will release by the end of this month, has nine tracks from different genres packed in one to lend complete entertainment to the listener. I am soon going to fly to Dubai to shoot some videos for the album," informs Yuvraj.
About promoting his album online, Yuvraj says, "I am a Facebook addict, my day starts with posting a message for my fans. I believe that social networking sites are a great media to connect with one's audiences and promote one's films. After all, how can we forget that the song, Yaar Anmulle, a chartbuster by Sharry Mann, was a YouTube hit first! Even artistes like Satinder Sartaaj and Justin Bieber are a YouTube discovery."
