He was a bundle of nerves about the idea but Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan finally agreed to turn singer for his highly-anticipated film ‘Kites’ after prodding by director Anurag Basu.
"I was nervous to make my debut as a singer considering I come from a family that is well known in the world of music, but for this very reason my chacha (Rajesh Roshan) and Anurag were most certain that I could sing," Hrithik said.
The 36-year-old actor’s debut song, ‘Kites in the Sky’, composed music by Rajesh Roshan would be released tomorrow along with other songs of the film.
"I have given this song my best and honest shot, but I still don’t consider myself a professional singer," Hrithik said. Basu spotted Hrithik’s singing talent when they were casually jamming one evening after dinner.
"After that when I told him to sing for ‘Kites’, he wasn’t too sure initially but he agreed to give it a try," Basu said. Praising Hrithik’s potential as a singer, Basu even suggested that the actor has an alternative career in the world of music.
"He is a natural singer and has the talent in his genes. I only did my job by tapping it. Hrithik has a good career ahead as a singer," he said.
Produced by Rakesh Roshan, the romantic saga ‘Kites’, which also stars Mexican actress Barbara Mori, Kangana Ranaut and Kabir Bedi, would hit the silver screen on May 21. (PTI)
