Ever since the video of Gurdas Maan’s latest song, ‘Punjab’ went viral, little Agamvir Singh found himself a fan following. The 10-year-old from Ludhiana starred as junior Bhagat Singh in the song that takes a look at Punjab today from his perspective.
“Yes, everybody recognises me and they want to take selfies with me,” says the soft spoken Agamvir, who is a student of class five at Sacred Heart School in Ludhiana. Incidentally, the child actor was signed up for Maan’s song after the actor saw him in a short film, ‘A Little Gardener’ directed by Satdeep Singh and Rachna Kaur. “I am being mentored by Satdeep ji in acting,” adds Agamvir who has been inundated with work in different projects. “But I couldn’t take them up as I had exams,” says Agamvir who now sports a turban, similar to one he wore in the video. “I love to wear a turban and I am learning to tie it myself too,” he smiles to say.
His sweet smile and endearing nature have won him a fan following not just in Punjab but overseas as well. He recently featured on Kapil Sharma’s show on Colors TV. “I feel everyone’s blessings have made me popular,” he tells us. While his father Jaspreet Singh, an industrialist, accompanies him everywhere, little Agamvir is fast learning to answer media queries on his own. “I love acting but I also like to sing,” he says and lists out actor-singer Ammy Virk, Amrinder Gill and Gurdas Maan as his favourites.
When asked how he felt working with the iconic Maan, Agamvir says, “It was really nice and he didn’t make me feel out of place on the sets. He is very sweet and humble.” Unlike most ten-year-olds, this little boy admits he doesn’t play video games and doesn’t miss them either. “I like playing badminton and football,” Agamvir shares and goes on to add that he intends to pay full attention to his studies as well. “Maths is my favourite subject,” he lets us know.
Brother to three-year-old Asees Kaur, Agamvir’s movie ‘A Little Gardener’ is now set for release. And as he heads back to Ludhiana, the 10-year-old says he has a message for everyone. “All of us own many costly things like mobile phones and gadgets and we look after it so well. But why can’t we look after nature and the environment that is given to us free. Kudrat da dhyan rakho (look after nature) is my message to everyone,” wraps up Agamvir.
