Singer turned actor Jassie Gill’s latest romantic single, Guitar Sikhda, is making the right noise. The song has been received well by music lovers and topping charts too. In fact, Sonakshi Sinha recently lip-synced to the song and Jassie, who is a fan of the Bollywood actor, tweeted the video.
He wrote, “Cannot explain my happiness in words... it’s like a dream come true. Main ki likha yaar bus tuc app hi dehk lvo keo khush a ehna main .. Now I can feel ur fan wali feelings guys..thank you so mch @sonakshisinha #GUITARSIKHDA (sic).”
It’s rather an interesting coincidence that Jassie is making his Bollywood debut opposite Sonakshi in Mudassar Aziz’s Happy Bhag Jayegi Returns. And the Punjabi actor-singer says he could not have asked for a better debut. “It is like double celebration for me. I loved Happy Bhag Jayegi (2016) and I got the offer to be a part of the second part. During my college days, when I was asked about my favourite actors, my answer used to be Sonakshi [Sinha] and Parineeti [Chopra]. So, when I got this opportunity, I could not stop thanking my stars,” Jassie laughs, before adding that he enjoyed the first shooting schedule with actors Diana Penty, Jimmy Sheirgill, who are also part of the film. Jassie will join the crew in the film’s upcoming schedule in China.
So, was he nervous on the first day of shooting with Sonakshi? He recalls, “I was, slightly. But she made me feel comfortable. There is something that I felt that day. Earlier, when my fans used to come to meet me, take autographs and selfies, I never understood their feelings. But I did [relate to them] when I met Sonakshi for the first time.”
There are reports that Jassie will also lend his voice to a song or two in the film. “There have been a few discussions and I might sing. We have also spoken about doing a promotional number for the film. But at this point, I can’t divulge any more details. As a performer, when I am working on a project, I’m ready to do whatever is required out of me. I completely enjoy doing it, as I feel that way I am contributing in the best possible way,” he says.
