Mumbai: Popular Punjabi rapper Hard Kaur, who made her acting debut with Akshay Kumar-starrer Patiala House, is geared up for her second acting project, Ticket To Bollywood.
The popular singer plays the role of an underworld don's daughter in the film, which stars Vinay Pathak.
"Yes I am coming in a movie called 'Ticket to Bollywood'. Initially, I came on board as a music director and had also given one hardcore qawali track... In the film, I am playing a don's daughter, she is a villain," Kaur said.
"It is not a big part, it is a special role. I am no actor, but it was absolutely fun doing it. Vinay Pathak is an amazing guy, I spent some time with him and in fact Vinay and my mom became really good friends," she added.
The 36-year-old Chaar Baj Gaye Lekin Party Abhi Baaki Hai hitmaker was away from the music scene for a long time but Kaur says she was busy making songs which she believes in.
"I was absent from the mainstream scene but I was underground, making song which I believe in. I started my record label, became a music director, I am doing everything I wanted to do. Just because I wasn't in front of the camera, people thought I wasn't doing music."
Kaur is all set to launch her single Sherni. The Move Your Body singer says the track is "pure" hip-hop which also talks about women empowerment.
"I actually wrote this song years ago but realised itwasn't the right time to release it... My mother told me to do some real hip-hop, which is there in the song.
"It is an extremely personal song for me. It talks about women empowerment and how we should change the mentality. With digital platform today being so vast and accessible, I think it is a good time to release it," she said.
