Comedian Kapil Sharma, who is ready to embark on his movie career, is also set to work with the talented Shruti Haasan on a number to be composed by Sukhwinder Singh.


The track would be produced by Coke Studios.

Kapil loves music and says he would be pursuing his singing career as seriously as acting.

"We are planning something. I met Shruti on a flight. I am a huge fan of her father Kamal Haasan-ji. And as luck would have it, I was sitting right next to Shruti on a flight. We got chatting and discovered our mutual love for music and singing. We decided we'd do a song together," he said.

From an air-borne idea, the song is now heading towards a ground reality.

"I've always said I'd have been a professional singer if I was not entertaining audiences from the stage. Being on stage gives me a chance to do both acting and singing. I am now looking at seriously pursuing acting and singing. The two go hand-in-hand in our films," he said.

Kapil, known for TV show "Comedy Nights With Kapil", will make a film debut with Yash Raj Films' (YRF) "Bank-Chor".
