NEW DELHI - Punjabi singer Mika Singh recently got a chance to shake a leg with his idol, the legendary Gurdas Maan, on the hit track “Apni to jaise taise” from “Housefull”. He says that for him it’s like a dream come true.
“Gurdas Maan is a rock star and all the Punjabi guys of my age aspired to be like him. It was an amazing experience to meet him when he had come for Daler paaji’s (Daler Mehndi) show so many years ago.
