If mu­sic is a hit, the film will work: Hi­mansh Kohli

Ac­tor Hi­mansh Kohli (right), who made his Bol­ly­wood de­but with the mu­si­cal Yaariyan (2014), says that even af­ter three years of the film’s re­lease, fans tell him that they still lis­ten to its mu­sic. Hi­mansh re­alises that good mu­sic is of­ten the rea­son be­hind a film’s suc­cess.

“My first film was a mu­si­cal. So, I know what mu­sic means to a new­comer. Yaariyan gave me a lot of recog­ni­tion, across the globe. So I feel, mu­sic is my god­fa­ther. If the mu­sic of the film is a hit, the movie will work,” says Hi­mansh, whose film Sweet­iee Weds NRI re­leased last Fri­day.

How­ever, af­ter the suc­cess of Yaariyan, Hi­mansh’s next film, Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai (2017) failed to make an im­pres­sion at the box of­fice. But, this does not bog down the young ac­tor. “When I signed the film, I was a lit­tle up­set with the di­rec­tor be­cause I wanted a big­ger role but he gave me a cameo. Thus, I couldn’t reach out to peo­ple. I wanted a good graph on the screen, so that I could show the au­di­ence what I am ca­pa­ble of, as an ac­tor. Un­for­tu­nately the film didn’t do well,” he con­fesses.
