Billed as the country's first female rapper, Hip-Hop star Hard Kaur is now focusing on an acting career in Bollywood and is kickstarting it with 'Patiala House' alongside superstar Akshay Kumar.
Kaur, who rose to fame with the song 'Glassy' sang her first Bollywood number 'Mover Your Body' in 'Johnny Gaddaar' and then delivered a string of hits in movies like 'Singh Is Kinng', 'Kismat Konnection', 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' and 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani'.
"In 'Patiala House' I play the role of Akshay kumar's cousin. I first met him for 'Hello India' in UK for which I recorded a song. He is very naughty and cracked lot of jokes when we were shooting," Hard Kaur said.
She also featured on a TV dance show recently and insists she believes in being the best in whatever she does.
"I have always believed in being the best whether it was singing or dancing during 'Jhalak Dikhla Ja'. I am not a big star but I would love to do more acting in the future and need to be careful about what I choose," Kaur said.
The film to be directed by Nikhil Advani is about generation gap in a family living in London. It also stars yesteryear's heartthrob Rishi Kapoor.
"Rishi Kapoor plays my Bauji and Akshay's father. He is an amazing actor and even at this age he is very professional. My character is very different from the real me. She is a very simple girl," Kaur said.
She is also upbeat about her upcoming show 'IPL Rockstar' on TV channel 'Colours' which she will be hosting.
"I love cricket and I am a good batsman myself. I am very excited to be a part of this show. There's music and it will be on the ground so it would be good. It's my first time as a TV host and I am just worried about speaking Hindi," Kaur said.
Kaur, whose first solo album 'Supawoman' was released in 2007 is happy with different opportunities coming her way but wants to break into the mainstream as a rapper.
"I have just finished an album but my first dream still remains to break into the mainstream and I would like to go and meet D-12 from Eminem's group, I already have a song ready with him," she said.
