'In a way, I can say that I have got a chance to walk on the same path as Kishore-da because I am attempting comedy. I feel those who are serious singers can do comedy well. I promise I will try my best,' added Himesh, who was shooting a promotional video for the film, told reporters.
Himesh earlier featured in serious roles in movies like 'Karzzz', 'Radio' and 'Kajraare' - but they didn't fetch as much success as he garnered through his singing or even his compositions. But he hopes audiences will accept him in the new genre.
'I'm a Kishore Kumar fan. He was a great actor, his comedy was great, his singing was wonderful. Somewhere I've been tagged as a singer-turned-actor, and earlier, people said that if singers turn into actors, their films don't work.
'But Kishore-da's films worked. Thanks to god's grace, my film 'Aap Ka Suroor' worked. Yes, two to three films didn't work after that, so this ('Damadamm!') is a test if my film can do well or not,' he said.
'I am a huge Shah Rukh Khan myself and I am looking forward to 'RA.One'. I will see that film first. But if you see the past five years' track record, comedy films have done quite well. So I am not worried. I am quite confident that around Diwali, the audience would like variety and would like to see a light-hearted comedy film like 'Damadamm!',' he said.

Come on you guys, he's not comparing himself with kishor da. In fact I don't find anything stupid in this article than your comments. You all need to understand that following someone and comparing is different.
I'm looking forward for Damadamm.
someone go and hit this guy on his head...
Kishore Kumar was one in a million who was a brilliant actor and a singer...this guy just has an inflaterd head
he makes good music no doubt..but acting...PATHETIC...and just two or three flukes dont make him or put him on par with Kishore Da!
