You might just want to familiarise yourself with this new Bollywood rookie Shekhar Ravjiani. Now only does he promise to put on an impressive performance as a debut artist in the film, but he also comes with a handful of secret talents.
Shekhar, who also happens to be a trained singer, put his vocal chords to the test to sing the heartbreakingly beautiful track ‘Gehra Ishq’, in the upcoming Sonam Kapoor starrer ‘Neerja’.
Based on the true story of the Pan Am braveheart Neerja Bhanot, Shekhar will be seen essaying the role of her love interest in the film. The music video of ‘Gehra Ishq’, not only introduces Shekhar’s character, but also gives us glimpses of the close relationship he shared with Neerja.
We have seen several young Bollywood actresses turn singers for their films, but Shekhar might just be one of the first few Bollywood singers to bag a full fledged role in a film.
According to recent reports, the new kid in Bollywood dropped a few films before finally accepting a part in ‘Neerja’. With his rugged yet sexy look and that twinkle in his eyes, you can bet we’ll be seeing him around.
From what we get to see in the short three-minute video, we also learn that Shekhar not only has the smile and charm that can make any girl go weak in the knees, but he can also pull off some intense emotional scenes. Action scenes are a thing of the past, when roles these days require the leading men to break down and show their 'softer side'.
'Neerja' hits theatres next week on February 19....
