Jasleen Royal: Hope to inspire girls to sing their heart out

Mumbai– Singer Jasleen Royal is getting appreciated for her vocals on the recent track ‘Ranjha’. While this is not the first song which has brought her fame, she wants to continue reaching heights to inspire more girls.

“I just try to do my best. I hope I am able to inspire young girls to pick up the guitar and sing their hearts out and create art,” Jasleen tells IANS.

The singer, who has playbacked in movies such as ‘Veere Di Wedding’, ‘Hichki’, ‘Phillauri’ and ‘Gully Boy’ believes that only recently, female singers are being given their due.

“There definitely is a gap since females started working really late. Our society has been really patriarchal so we are now catching up,” says Jasleen.

The young singer reveals that actor Sidharth Malhotra really liked her track ‘Ranjha’, before it was finalised for his film.

“Siddharth had personally loved this song and wanted it for his film. He has a great ear for music. To make it so appealing visually I give all the credit to my director and music supervisor at Dharma,” she says.

Badshah to appear on ‘Zee Comedy Show’ as special guest

Mumbai– Rapper Badshah will share some interesting anecdotes and spicy comments as he appears as a special guest this weekend on ‘Zee Comedy Show’.


While the hilarious acts by all the comedians coupled with the witty reactions and comments of Mika Singh surely left everyone in splits during the shoot, it was Chitrashi Rawat, Sugandha Mishra Bhosle and Sidharth Sagar’s gossip act that made everyone laugh out loud. In fact, during the act, Sidharth essayed the role of Rakhi Sawant and left everyone surprised with his performance.

Evidently, Mika was quite amused by the performance and happened to reveal an interesting thing about his bond with her. Leaving everyone stunned, the singer called Rakhi his best friend and also mentioned how he knows her better than anyone else.

As Mika Singh opened up: “I am a huge fan of Sidharth Sagar and his acts, however today, he was in another zone altogether, he put up a truly phenomenal act. He was playing my best friend, Rakhi Sawant, and he truly aced it. The energy he showed and the nuances he picked up; they were bang on! I must add the accent you held onto throughout the act; it was perfect. No one knows Rakhi Sawant better than me, so I can tell you, you did her mimicry very well.”

While Mika Singh’s revelations and Badshah’s musical performances will grab the attention, one cannot miss the comic acts by all the artistes.
