Punjabi singer-actor Ammy Virk, who has featured in romantic-comedy films like Nikka Zaildar 2 and Sat Shri Akaal England, says it’s tough for experimental movies in his language to create fireworks at the box office. Punjabi artistes like Gurdas Maan, Diljit Dosanjh, Harbhajan Mann and Gippy Grewal are singers as well as actors. Asked about the common combination of singing and acting in Punjab, Ammy said: “We have a strong fan following. So when we enter movies, it becomes a bit easy to promote ourselves and the films.” “You can’t experiment much. If you make an experimental film in Punjab, then I don’t think it will work right now as the market is not that big. If the market grows, then more type of genres like action and suspense can also do well.” He is pumped up about his next film Qismat, also a romantic-comedy. What about Bollywood?
“Yeah. It’s like the journey of a police official, who starts from a low rank and goes on to have a high rank. After doing Punjabi films, even I plan on joining Bollywood as a lead actor. I have some plans and I am working on them,” said Ammy, who has tweeted a photograph featuring him and Bollywood director Kabir Khan.
The “huge fan” of actor Akshay Kumar promises that he will take up “powerful” characters.
