HYDERABAD: The celebrated Bollywood musician siblings Manmeet Singh and Harmeet Singh aka ‘Meet Bros’ were in town on Thursday to perform at a concert in St Mary’s college campus. Known for giving Bollywood hits like Baby Doll and High Heels, the brothers talk of their love for music, Tollywood and Hyderabad.
Tell us about your musical career. You have worked in big TV shows. What made you shift from acting to music?
We loved acting, but music was always on the cards since we started our career. But it was on a low key, as we didn’t have any Godfather. We took a little time to come up but yes, now we are known for our music and it feels great.
Would you like to get back into acting?
Acting is not what we are looking for now, but yes, if we come across some great musical script, we would love to.
We are not looking for regular films; we can’t see ourselves murdering someone or doing action scenes. We want to do something through which people could relate to us.
Any plans of working in Tollywood?
We have already signed for a Telugu movie directed by Charan. We’ll start working on it. Our first experience of working in Tollywood was in Ram Charan’s movie Zanzeer which was a trilingual movie.
How different was it working in Tollywood for you?
Well, it is fun working here.
What is different about Tollywood is that they are experimental, they never say mujhe aesa music hi chahiye. They are receptive. They like the Bollywood touch in their music and that’s what we love about them.
As you have been to Hyderabad before, what is the thing for which you would come back to this place?
Hyderabad ke Kebab aur Biryani (laughs). Well, Hyderabad is a very professional city and we would love to come back here for work. The work culture over here is amazing and people are very professional.
