For the first time, Mika Singh is in the news for a good reason. Last week, the heartwarming story of Savi Sidhu left everyone feeling gutted. The actor, who has worked in films like Black Friday, Patiala House and Bewakoofiyaan, revealed in a now-viral interview with an entertainment website that he was not getting any offers and was forced to work as a security guard to make ends meet.
Now, Mika Singh has offered him a part in his upcoming production, Bhushan Patel’s Aadat, which stars Karan Singh Grover and Bipasha Basu in the lead roles. Not just this, the singer also told him to stop working as a security guard and join his team instead.
Savi’s friends informed him that Mika was trying to get in touch with him, After a few days, I received a call from him, and I thought it was a prank. Mika was direct. You are not doing this job anymore, you are joining my group,’ he told me. The next day, he sent a car to take me to his house. He gave me some new clothes and food. I start working with him in the next 10 days, he told a newspaper.
Mika said that when he heard Savi’s story, he made his mind up to help him in whatever way he could. I found it odd that a talented actor who has worked in big films and with big directors had to take up the job of a watchman for Rs 9000 a month. Being a Punjabi and from the same fraternity as him, I wanted to help. It was surprising that no one was offering him work, even a small role would surely be better than a watchman’s job, he said.
The singer requested Aadat director Bhushan Patel and writer Vikram Bhatt to rework the script slightly to include a role for Savi. I have also recommended him for other roles. I also plan to help him find work as an acting coach, he revealed.
