‘AC­TORS TURN­ING SINGERS ISN’T A THREAT’

Re­cently ac­tors such as Alia Bhatt, Shrad­dha Kapoor and Sal­man Khan have crooned for their films. But, this grow­ing trend does not bother singers at all, feels singer Tulsi

Ku­mar (above). “I don’t think it can ever af­fect a singer. It has been hap­pen­ing since the 70s when ac­tors such as Ashok Ku­mar used to sing in their songs. Even now we see ac­tors at­tempt­ing to sing, which is com­pletely cool since some singers are also at­tempt­ing to act. Ev­ery song re­quires a cer­tain tone and there­fore, singers shouldn’t feel threat­ened,” says Ku­mar.

When asked if act­ing is on Tulsi’s mind, she adds, “No, that is not on my mind. I al­ways fea­ture in my video and peo­ple recog­nise me. How­ever, I don’t in­tent to take up act­ing.”

How­ever, there’s some­thing else on her mind. “I would love to get into mu­sic di­rec­tion. Maybe some­time in fu­ture,” says Ku­mar.
