New Delhi: Famous singer Daler Mehndi's son Gurdeep makes his Bollywood debut with "Meri Shaadi Karao" and the actor takes pride in his claim of being the first original 'sardaar' hero in Bollywood.

“Meri Shaadi Karao is perfect blend of romance and comedy and through this I put forth all my skills like-acting, singing, dancing- to make it a hit,” said Gurdeep, the debutant of Bollywood during his visit to Dainik Jagran office Noida on Saturday.

"This is for the first time that Hindi cinema will see an original Sardar playing the protagonist. So far only actors have donned a sardar's look on screen but it will be a great experience to see an original Sardar on celluloid. I am a face of Sikh community and it is a great moment for our community," Gurdeep said.

While talking about Meri Shaadi Karao, Gurdeep said, “I chose this genre because I am very fun loving person and comedy is my forte. I am pretty much comfortable while acting in rom-com movies.”

While talking about her role, Radhika, acting opposite to Gurdeep said, “I will be seen in a role of a Punjabi next door girl and despite my upbringing in New Zealand, I am dubbing in my own voice for this film.”

The 23-year-old new celeb Gurdeep is even more excited about the fact that his entire family has contributed in his debut film.

"My debut film will see my entire family's contribution. My mom is playing a small role in the film, my sister has sung a song and the film is presented by my father Daler Mehndi. It wasn't a conscious effort though but things fell in place spontaneously," he said.

Gurdeep claims that music is in his blood, though, he also adds that he prefers acting over it.

"Music is in my blood, but I chose acting over it. I have sung four songs in the film but there will always be a comparison with my dad. I can never give competition to my father as he is in a different league altogether," he said.

Directed by Syyed Noor, 'Meri Shaadi Karao' is scheduled for Jan 4 release.
