"I am happy that so many critics have appreciated me an an actor"- Himesh. Himesh is extremely overwhelmed with the response he has got from critics for his performance as an actor in Happy Hardy and Heer. He says, "In my 10th film, it was about getting appreciation as an actor and the film being liked by everyone and I’m very happy with the appreciation from the critics and audience for my look, performance and the film. My journey from a music star to an actor begins now and I will be working even harder on my future projects Namastey Rome and the Xpose returns. Javed sahab and I are very excited with the music of Namastey Rome and I promise you bigger and better music in Namastey Rome than the landmark music of Namastey London. We will go one step further with this and that's why we are waiting for the right project to get back as our team has set such high expectations. Director Rajesh Sethi is in full form and my workshops have already started with him. Will be starting The Xpose Returns soon too."
Besides acting in these films and doing live shows, the rock-star is also currently judging Indian Idol and working on music for Radhe, Raj Kumar Santoshi's film Bad Boy and Anubhav Sinha’s film directed by Ratna Sinha.
