Aditya Roy Kapur to follow Priyanka Chopra?

The actor who played the role of a rockstar in Aashiqui 2 will soon come up with his own music album

Aditya Roy Kapur confessed that he has always been interested in music and has been wanting to cut an album since his days as VJ. The newbie says, “I want to cut an album and people keep telling me to bring it out soon but I need to spend time working on that. Though I am quite decent with my guitar playing I will need people for my music arrangements, background etc. I compose my own music and write my own songs so putting it together is not a problem. I just need some time.

Currently, I am shooting for Daawat-E-Ishq so I don’t have the time to put it together but yes, I will definitely do so next year. Though I am not sure yet whether it will be a single or a compilation of all kinds of songs.”

Aditya says when he’s writing the songs they just flow…He doesn’t know if it will be a love album. It could be anything that inspires him: Philosophy, pain or happiness. “I can have any random thought and I just scribble that down.” He proudly reveals that he has three files of random scribblings (songs) collected through the years. I write on everything from love to life and philosophy. I don’t know how good they are.”

He plays tunes on his guitar and records it. “I tape it on a recorder. Right now it’s at such a nascent stage.” The actor-singer who has not had any formal training wants to rope in the best musicians to help him put together his album. “I had no training. I was a part of a band in St Xaviers College at the age of 18. Once I left my college I left the band also as I joined Channel V. Now I just play for my friends.”
