Kanika Kapoor wants to take up acting
Dubai : She has lent her voice to some of the top Bollywood actresses but now singer Kanika Kapoor harbours a wish to be seen herself on the big screen.
Kanika, who has given chartbusters like “Baby Doll” and “Chittiya Kalaiyan”, said she would love to romance superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan on screen.
“If something (acting offer) interesting comes up, I will definitely take it up. I think I can act. I would love to act opposite Shah Rukh and Salman,” Kanika told PTI on the sidelines of Times of India Film Awards (TOIFA).
Keeping her acting aspirations on hold, the 37-year-old is gearing up for many “sufi, sad tracks”, which she feels will change listeners’ view of her.
First such song from her kitty will be “Akhiyan”, to be featured in Randeep Hooda-Kajal Aggarwal starrer “Do Lafzoen ki Kahani”.
“Singers get stereotyped. I have been stereotyped too but this year you will see a new Kanika Kapoor. I have beautiful sufi work coming out, which is actually my forte. There are a lot of melodies, sad songs on the way- both Bollywood and independent singles.”
The “Lovely” hitmaker added she will be giving a glimpse of her new singing avatar in her upcoming TOIFA performance, which will be a tribute to Uttar Pradesh.
“I am doing a tribute to Uttar Pradesh because I belong to Lucknow. We are doing a mix of old and new songs. I am very excited because this is something new that I am doing,” she said.
