Bollywood has many famous Punjabi artists. A prominent face in the music industry and a well-known Punjabi actor and filmmaker, Zippy Grewal has been involved in multiple Hindi film projects, but never stepped into the Bollywood limelight.
Speaking about his reservations, Zippy said: i like movies But if you’ve already established yourself as an artist in one industry, why should you (wrestle) in another? Producer in Hindi Film Industry I work with top Bollywood actors likes to An ensemble cast will be approaching the film they are proud of. They say koi ek hero nahi hai, sab hi hero hai. But when the movie comes out, we notice koi ek hi hero tha (the rest of the actors’ scenes are edited out).
Gippy also feels that the filmmakers here are hesitant to give artists their due credit. My song Angreji Beat (as a singer) starring Deepika Padukone (in Cocktail) became popular but did not get credit for it. People still don’t know it’s a Zippy Grewal song. Similarly, I was asked to sing The Punjaabban Song (Jugjugg Jeeyo), which I did, but was never told they advanced my vocals. That’s when I found out after the trailer was released that someone said they heard my song in the movie. Chalo gaana use kiya, full film ki Promotion mein yeh gaana chala. Promotion through the na ki yeh gaana maine gaaya hai. Here’s what I’m saying, they don’t give you credit. ”
This contrasts sharply with the film industry in the South, he says. he said: Similarly, I applauded Kartik Aaryan of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 on his Twitter. He put in a good performance and gave it his all during the promotion. When Liger’s trailer was released, I took to social media to congratulate Vijay on his de Vela Konda. On the one hand, I have seen many Bollywood people just praising others on social media. So they are not very receptive to others. Yaar Punjab ki film industry ke mukabale, Bollywood bohot badi film industry hai. But if they say nice things about me, just a fan ko bohot achcha lagega. ”
So are these negative cases keeping him from working in Bollywood? He is known here for his songs, but as an actor he has appeared in only a few films. He made his Bollywood debut in 2015 with Second Hand Husband starring Dharmendra. After that, he was seen in his 2017 Farhan Akhtar star Lucknow his Central. I have that experience (in Punjabi cinema), so I don’t want to pick up Bollywood cinema just to be part of Hindi cinema. Aside from that, the fees they offer me in Bollywood are such that I want to work here for free.Ab meri Punjab mein Fee hi zyada hai toh main kya karu?”
