'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.
