With a lot of advancement in the music industry and auto-tuning feature, almost every actor has tried luck in singing. Thanks to the technology, actors even with very rough voice also came in the category of good singers.
Following the footsteps of actors, singers also tried their luck in acting. But as we all know acting is a pure talent that cannot be auto-tuned, the singers failed miserably. Here are some of the singers who tried to act in movies by failed miserably.
The singer has won a huge number of accolades for his exceptional singing talent and has given us many super hit songs in movies and albums. The acting bug also bit the singer and he tried his luck in acting with the movie ‘Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani’. He also worked in movies ‘Kash Aap Hamare Hote‘ and ‘Love in Nepal’ but all the movies flopped miserably. This was enough for the actor to understand that his voice is more than enough to impress the fans and he doesn’t need extra efforts to stay in our mind.
Singer, music director, lyricist and reality show judge Himesh Reshammiya made his acting debut with the movie ‘Aap Kaa Surroor – The Real Love Story’. Though the movie was a big flop, the singer didn’t stop and tried his luck in a few other movies including ‘Karzzzz’, ‘Radio’, ‘Khiladi 786’ and ‘The Xpose’, and the results of all the movies strongly recommend him to continue with what he is good at, Singing not acting.
Highly successful rapper Honey Singh also tried his hands in acting with movies like ‘Boss’ and ‘The Xpose’. Both the movies flopped like anything and the conclusion came out that the singer should not be exposed to acting.
The singer who is best known for his song ‘Chota Bacha Jaan Ke’ and his child role in the movies ‘Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai’, ‘Akele Hum Akele Tum’ and ‘Pardesh’ tried to act as lead hero in the movie ‘Shaapit’ but couldn’t taste the same success like his childhood. But when it comes to his singing, he is still a good singer, which concludes that he should focus on what he is good at.
Remember Vidya Balan’s first music album ‘Kabhi Aana Tu Meri Gali’? It was also one of the best songs by Doctor turned singer Palash Sen. Undoubtedly, he is a great singer, but god knows who suggested him to act and he tried his luck in movies ‘Mumbai Cutting’ and ‘Aisa Yeh Jahaan’. Do you remember the movies? Honestly, I haven’t even heard the names of the movies. Why Palash why? We really love you as a singer and are happy to hear your voice, but don’t want to see you act at all.
Indian Idol 1 winner earned a lot of name and fame after winning the show but soon started to fade away in the limelight of Mumbai. His career was already going through tough face where he made a blunder of acting in the movies like ‘Lottery’ which spoiled his already sinking career completely.
There is no doubt about the talent and singing skills of playback singer Sukhwinder Singh. He got international fame and Academy award for his song ‘Jai Ho’ and Grammy award for best song written. He also tried to experiment and worked in a movie ‘Kuchh Kariye’ as the lead actor. The movie was a super-duper flop. He again tried his luck in the movies and worked in ‘Kill Dil’ which again got the same response. Hope he has learnt his lesson and now he will stick to singing in the future.
The actor rules on music lovers’ mind with his sweet voice. He worked in a movie ‘Balwinder Singh Famous Ho Gaya’ with Mika Singh. Released in 2014, the comedy drama failed to impress the audience. The audience could only say ‘Darshak bechara bore ho gaya’. Shaan you are too sweet, but this doesn’t mean people will tolerate your boring acting. We love you as a singer and just love to hear your voice.
Following the footsteps of his father Mehmood, who was a good singer, actor and comedian, Lucky also tried his luck in all but failed miserably. The singer best known for his ballad-style singing worked in a few movies like ‘Kaante’, ‘Kasak’ and ‘Sur – The Melody of Life’ but both the movies failed on the Box Office. After that he hasn’t been seen in any movie.
Mika Singh is famous for his foot tapping Punjabi numbers. The singer has a bad boy image in the industry that he tried to cash on by playing the similar roles in the movies. He worked in a few Punjabi movies like ‘Mitti’, ‘The Film Love.com’ and a Hindi movie ‘Balwinder Singh Famous Ho Gaya’. Looking at the way his movies sank, he doesn’t seem in the mood to work in the movies again, which he recently made clear on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.
