He calls himself a bathroom singer, yet Bollywood star Akshay Kumar didn’t think twice before singing romantic number “Bheege honth tere” for the leading ladies of his forthcoming film “Housefull 2″.
Akshay was here Monday for the launch of the new issue of Stardust magazine with co-stars Jacqueline Fernandes, Asin Thottumkal, Zarine Khan and Shazahn Padamsee and he sang for them at the event.
“Please dim the lights,” he said before he started singing, to set the mood for “Bheege honth tere”, which happens to be one of his favourite romantic numbers.
Akshay was out of tune, but didn’t let go. He stood confidently and sang the entire song with the support of background music.
Of course, he was cheered by girls in the crowd at the F Bar and Lounge at the Ashoka Hotel.
“If my films don’t work, maybe I can start singing only! But I sing very badly. I’m a bathroom singer but what to do … I love singing. I guess a whole lot of Indians are bathroom singers,” he said. – IANS
