Guru Randhawa: As family singer knew I had to make family film


In a fresh turn of events in his diverse career, singer-songwriter Guru Randhawa has decided to take on the silver screen with his acting debut in the forthcoming film ‘Kuch Khattaa Ho Jaay.’ Having established himself as a household name in music, the transition may come as a surprise to some, yet it’s a reflection of Randhawa’s personal growth and long-standing love affair with cinema.

Guru Randhawa is in the prime of his musical career, a journey that has spanned over a decade. And now, the pop sensation is set to embark on a new adventure, one that will see him gracing the film sets rather than live stages. Post the year 2020, a time of reflection and new beginnings for many, Randhawa felt the urge to branch out into the realm of acting. He endeavors through a range of scripts before settling on what he believes to be the pinnacle choice, marking this as a pivotal moment in his artistic progression.

‘Kuch Khattaa Ho Jaay’ pairs the debutant with the talented Saiee Manjrekar. This romantic comedy intricately weaves the tale of a young couple navigating the choppy waters of marital life and familial expectations, particularly, the pressure of having a baby. Directed by Ashok G, the film is not just a narrative benefiting those inclined to romance but carries a social message that Randhawa believes is guaranteed to resonate with families across the board.

True to his roots, the film aligns with Randhawa’s image and past as a “family singer,” whose work has always catered to audiences of all ages. Delving into the world of acting with a project that is endearing and has societal relevance made logical sense. In the ambiance of cinema, just like in his music, he aims to forge connections that transcend age and time.

His decision to delve into acting is not an attempt to mirror the paths of other Punjabi pop icons such as Diljit Dosanjh, Gippy Grewal, or Jassie Gill, who have also found success in the film industry after making it big in music. Randhawa is firm in the fact that his peers were not the beacons that led him to act. Rather, his pan-India audience obligations and self-propelled cinematic voyage informed his course.

Randhawa’s passion for the silver screen runs deep, a fascination stoked by the crafts of revered actors like Robert De Niro, Irrfan Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Leonardo DiCaprio. His understanding of the acting domain is not superficial but grounded in a genuine appreciation for the nuances and intricacies of the art form. For Randhawa, the gravitation towards acting is not a diversion but an extension of his artistic expression.

While Guru’s fans may be curious about how he will juggle his time between his established music career and the newfound pursuit of acting, the singer-turned-actor is nothing if not a multitasker with a midas touch. It stands to reason that the same tenacity and connective power that catapulted him to the top of the music industry will allow him to leave a mark in the world of film as well.

The anticipation around ‘Kuch Khattaa Ho Jaay’ is palpable, as audiences await to witness the confluence of Randhawa’s musical charm and his performance on the big screen. With a debut that’s tailored to his persona and a story that speaks to a broad audience demographic, Guru Randhawa is poised to carve out a new niche in his already impressive career.

As the film nears its release, there is no doubt that eyes will be on Randhawa, eagerly watching to see if he can bring the same level of charisma and depth to his roles as he has to his concerts. Regardless of the outcome, Guru Randhawa’s foray into acting signifies a bold step into an arena that beckons with its creative allure—a step that only enriches the multifaceted nature of this dynamic artist’s journey.
