Drawing well-known singer-cum-actor Gurdas Mann into any kind discussion proved to be a tough task but we finally got several nuggets of interesting information. In town to promote his upcoming release Mini Punjab,the singer said politics is something he prefers to keep away from.
He simply refuses to be drawn into conversation when asked his opinion about his colleague Hans Raj Hans entry into politics. I wish him all the luck,thats all. Asked whether he would campaign for his fellow singer,Mann said: I do not wish to be a part of politics.
Moving on to films then. Mini Punjab is due for release on April 12. I like my name in the film Prem as it symbolises our aim. The movie is about bringing people together with love. The films producer Kuljinder Singh Sidhu adds his bit. As the title suggests,this film is about Punjabis living in a building in Mumbai.
The man who has been part of the era when Punjabi cinema churned out classics like Chan Pardesi and Laung da Lishakara says: As always,I am trying to put my best foot forward. Waaris Shah is one of my best works and,I believe,so is my under-production film Sukhmani.
The vagaries of time do not seem to have left any imprint on Manns face or vigour. The secret the love of my fans, he smiles. When people appreciate my work,fresh energy starts flowing through me which makes me want to excel even more. But the fact remains that I am still young abhee toh mein jawan hoon.
