Akshay Anand to release album
Akshay Anand, who stars in Mere Ghar Aaye Ek Nanhi Pari
(Colors, Mon-Thurs at 9.30), is working on his first music album. The
actor has been learning to play the guitar for the past few years and
says he is ready to record.
"I have been learning classical guitar for the last 2 to 3 years. It
took me a lot of time, but I've learnt a lot. I've also been reading a
lot about music. It's hard to learn classical guitar. Many people quit.
I've now decided to record an album. Rajan Banga is composing some of
the songs for me. Rajan has worked with Mika Singh and Daler Mehndi in
the past," Akshay says.
Akshay composes too. "Professor Ramchandran , who
is based in Mumbai, is training me. We have composed 4 to 5 songs so
far. But we're only done with the melodies and we still need to work on
them. I think I'll be done by the end of this year. Then I'll have to
approach different labels."
The multifaceted actor is also keeping himself busy writing movie
scripts. "I've put down a few concepts," he says, "I have been meeting
people. One of them, a thriller, is very interesting. I am also keen on
becoming an assistant director. Maybe after completing two years as an
assistant, I'll think about directing my own movie."
Akshay's role in the film Zakhm
was highly appreciated and recently, he was offered another Mahesh Bhatt movie. He also plays Brij on the television serial Saat Phere
