It is nothing new for a person from a certain area of the entertainment industry to go off and try their hand at something else, in a bid to prove that they have a lot more to offer than just being a one trick pony. We have seen plenty of stars in the music industry over the years, who have decided to give the acting game a go, with mixed levels of success along the way.
Well it now seems that there is yet another musician who is looking to get their acting game on, as it has been claimed that the British singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran is preparing to make the move into acting. It has been claimed that Ed will make his acting debut in the Bollywood movie Happy New Year 2, following a meeting with some big Bollywood stars.
Ed Sheeran recently performed a gig in Mumbai and headed off to an after party with some top Bollywood names. Ed spent some time with director and choreographer Farah Khan, who claims that Sheeran will appear in Happy New Year 2, "Not only did Ed hit it off with Abhishek, but before I left, they both also decided that Ed would act in Happy New Year 2," he explained.
Farah Khan was the director for the first Happy New Year film so, if he is saying that Ed Sheeran is going to appear in Happy New Year 2, then we have no reason to disbelieve him. It will certainly be interesting to see what sort of role Ed would play in the Bollywood movie and what his acting skills are like. We look forward to it.
