Indie music scene propels Vikas Bhalla to come back to music

MUMBAI: He became an instant hit with his single ‘Hai Dhuan’, and even tried his luck on the big screen before navigating his way into television. Actor-musician Vikas Bhalla says with independent music flourishing at its own rhythm in India, he is planning to revive his music career, and is even ready with a new single.

Bhalla, who is also eager to make a comeback in Bollywood, has been brought on board for the reality TV show- ‘Bigg Boss Nau’, and noted that he will release his new single when he comes out of the 'Bigg Boss' house.

"I released a single in the late 1990s and it did quite well, making me popular. With the independent music culture making a comeback, I'm planning to release new music. I hope 'Bigg Boss' acts as a stepping stone for my comeback into music. I will release a single when I come out of the house," he told IANS over the phone from Lonavla.

He added that although the song is ready, he cannot divulge any other details.

Bhalla has entered the reality show, in which celebrities have to live in an isolated house for about three months sans any luxury. The 'double trouble' ninth season, which is hosted by Bollywood superstar- Salman Khan, went on air on Sunday on Colors channel.

A trained singer, Bhalla started his acting career back in 1996 with ‘Sauda’, but shifted to the small screen soon after a few of his films failed to make it big. But lady luck smiled on his television career as shows like ‘Sanjog Se Bani Sanjini’ and ‘Shanno Ki Shaadi’ earned him a lot of popularity.

The actor said, "I would love to comeback to movies. The type of movies, which were made then, was very different. I would like to do some good movies. And I hope my stint in 'Bigg Boss' works in that aspect."

The reality show has earned a notorious reputation for its controversies and constant brickbats. Bhalla notes that the proposal to be a part of the show left him shocked as well. "I'm not a controversial person at all and when they offered me the part, I was wondering ‘why me’. So, I said yes to get an answer to this why," said the father of two.

Bhalla is jittery about his temper issues as he says, "I'm scared and hope I don't say anything wrong to anyone. I get angry when rubbed the wrong way".
