No plans of becoming an actor: Ankit Tiwari

MUMBAI: Bollywood singer-composer Ankit Tiwari has delivered one chartbuster after another in the past couple of years, but unlike some of his colleagues who have left the mic to face the camera, he does not have any plans of becoming an actor.

"There are seriously no plans of becoming an actor. I have no association whatsoever with acting. If it's about coming in front of the camera and performing, then I'm already working on my single where I'll be seen on screen performing on my own number,” said the ‘Galliyan’ singer.

”But acting a bit on my own song and acting on screen with dialogues has a huge difference between them," said Tiwari at a media interaction for the film ‘Do Lafzon Ki Kahani’ for which he has composed a track.

Tiwari's response was prompted by some journalists sensing some resemblance between the singer and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, as he is currently sporting a ponytail just like Khan's famous ponytail. Journalists were of the view that his mannerisms and even talking style were also along similar lines.

The 29-year old singer admitted his look is inspired by the ‘Dilwale’ actor.

The trend of singers turning actors has been a common one in the industry with several of Tiwari’s contemporaries, including Himesh Reshammiya, Sonu Nigam, Shaan and Mika Singh donning the greasepaint.
