Shahid Mallya made his Bollywood debut with the song “Gurbani” from the movie Yamla Pagla Deewana. He rose to fame with “Rabba Main To Mar Gaya Oye” and “Ik Tu Hi Tu” for Pankaj Kapur’s debut film Mausam.

Earlier, during an interview with us, Shahid talked about his struggles in Mumbai and also talked about nepotism. He said, “People who come from small towns face all kinds of problems. First, they don’t know the streets of studios and production houses. And then, you have to mingle with the language, the food and the environment of this city. When people see you speaking in your language like Punjabi or Rajasthani, people take you for granted and don’t think you are worthy enough to give an opportunity.
