I'm original 'sardar' hero in Bollywood: Daler Mehndi's son

Mumbai, Dec 10 (IANS) Popular singer Daler Mehndi's son Gurdeep makes his Bollywood debut with "Meri Shaadi Karao" and the actor says he is proud of the fact that he is the first original 'sardaar' hero in Bollywood.

"This is for the first time that Hindi cinema will see an original sardar playing the protagonist. So far only actors have donned a sardar's look on screen but it will be great to see an original sardar in the film. I am representing my community and it is a great moment for our community," Gurdeep told IANS.

The 23-year-old is even more excited about the fact that his entire family has contributed in his debut film.

"My debut film will see my entire family's contribution. My mom is playing a small role in the film, my sister has sung a song and the film is presented by my father Daler Mehndi. It wasn't a conscious effort though but things fell in place on its own," he said.

Though Gurdeep admits music is in his blood, he prefers acting over it.

"Music is in my blood, but I chose acting over it. I have sung four songs in the film but there will always be a comparison with my dad. I can never give competition to my father as he is in a different league altogether," he said.

Directed by Syyed Noor, 'Meri Shaadi Karao' is scheduled for Jan 4 release.
