Hyderabad: Armaan Malik is in Hyderabad to attend the SIIMA Awards 2020 & 2021 and the singer couldn’t be more excited. And why wouldn’t he be? He has been nominated in the category Best Playback Singer (male) for his song ‘Buttabomma’ from ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’.
Speaking exclusively to ‘Telangana Today’, Armaan asks us to wish him good luck. “It’s always great coming to Hyderabad – I love the city. Of course, my mom is a Telugu speaker, so she has many relatives here. We always look forward to coming to Hyderabad and relish the tasty food. This time, I’m in the city for SIIMA. ‘Buttaboma’ has been a chartbuster, so I’m confident that I’ll win but one can never predict these things. I’m nominated along with some great people, so I’m just looking forward to the event,” Armaan shares.
Armaan has sung songs in many languages including Hindi, English, Kannada, Bengali, Tamil, and Malayalam. But, his Telugu chartbuster ‘Buttabomma’ is the most popular song in his discography. To be a well-rounded Indian singer “has always been his goal”.
The popular singer most recently sang ‘Teri Aankhon Mein’ in the Hindi version of Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Thalaivii’. He also sang ‘Guche Gulabi’ for the upcoming Telugu movie ‘Most Eligible Bachelor’. He has many other songs in the pipeline.
Armaan started his musical career at a very young age, and his journey couldn’t have been easy. “A lot of us keep our mental health in the backburner. We rarely focus on giving ourselves the required ‘me time’ and get carried away with the hustle and bustle of everyday life. In fact, no one wants to even talk about their mental health struggles to someone. It’s extremely important to create an environment for those struggling with mental health issues to open up and talk it out,” shares the 26-year-old.
The good-looking singer would love to venture into acting in the near future if he is offered the “right project”.
