West Indies cricketer Dwayne Bravo, who would be making his singing debut in Bollywood with Tum Bin 2, says he looks upto Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan for the success they have achieved in their 25-year-old acting career.
“Apart from being a professional cricketer I wanted to do something. This is my debut in Bollywood and something that I always wanted to do. I am happy to get the opportunity. India is a place for dreams and fulfilling the dreams,” said the 32-year-old cricketer-turned-singer.
“I am aware about Bollywood films and actors. I look up to Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan. They are my favourite actors. I admire them for the success they have got. They are so popular internationally as well,” Dwayne said here.
“Among actresses, I like Deepika Padukone as well. I have seen a few Hindi films like My Name is Khan. It is one of my favourite films,” he said, he seems to share a great bond with the King Khan as they often party together.
Bravo is a member of SRK-owned The Trinbago Knight Riders, which is a franchise cricket team of the Caribbean Premier League.
Director Anubhav Sinha had roped in American singer Akon to sing Chhammak Chhallo in his 2011 Shah Rukh-starrer Ra.One.
Now for the sequel of his 2001 hit romantic drama Tum Bin 2, he has got Bravo.
The song called “Jager bomb” is being shot today in a suburban nightclub. The star cast of the film – Neha Sharma, Aashim Gulati, and Aditya Seal – will also make a special appearance in the song alongside Dwayne.
Ask him if SRK is aware about his upcoming song, Dwayne said, “I think so. He is close friend of the producer.”
For this peppy track, Dwayne has learnt a few new lines in Hindi. The song will also have vocals from Ankit Tiwari, who has composed the film’s music.
