24 year old USA based Indian singer, lyricist and composer Sooraj Bishnoi is all set to launch his new song “The Actor”. After the success of his tracks Nemesis (February 2017), City Beat (4 December 2018) and his debut 11 track ablum “Here We Go” (January, 2019) gathering a whopping two lakh+ views on YouTube, Sooraj is releasing his video format song “The Actor”. He states that the Video format song will have “twist in the tail” kind of story. It sends out a Clear message, ‘One cannot be successful by blindly being ‘Someone Else’. The album will hit the local track soon. The teaser is out.
The idea of the song is - just by looking at the stars on the boulevard and thinking, “Well, if the pinnacle of fame is to have a star on the ground for people to walk all over, then what even is fame, and how much of an identity must someone lose, to just be another star on the ground.”Speaking about the Song, Bishnoi added, “I wanted the music video to have a ‘twist in the tale’ kinda story - which drives home that you cannot be successful by being ‘someone else’...
A definite story set in Hollywood though, not just a montage. But shots of typical ‘Hollywood’ scenes (like the sign, the stars, the lights etc) to establish clearly the hopes and aspirations of stardom that actors and performers come to Hollywood with!!”
The song has been inspired by people pretending to be someone else constantly in their daily lives, in the hustle of Hollywood, and what this town makes them do. It’s an admonishment, of sorts, telling people to strip away the mask and be themselves - not just another role to play.
