Young and accomplished British singer-musician Ed Sheeran, who swept his fans off his feet here with his concert, feels a "welcoming" and "warm" vibe in India, where he thinks a collaboration with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will be "quite cool".
"Bollywood is bright and colourful. A film with Shah Rukh Khan would be quite cool," Sheeran, a Grammy Award winner, told IANS in a recorded response.
Sheeran, who was on his second visit to India, had met Shah Rukh on his last time here too, and they met again on Saturday night at a party organised by choreographer-filmmaker Farah Khan.
"I met so many people at the party, they are such nice people," Sheeran said of the celebrations, which saw a string of Bollywood celebrities trying to match steps and click selfies with the globally popular music icon, who is all of 26.
He is a sensation for his song "Shape of you", which he also sang on Sunday night at his India gig, which was part of his Divide Album Asia Tour. Sheeran kept his date with India despite his widely reported injury in an accident.
The concert, in association with BookMyShow and PR Worldwide, was in support for his third studio album "Divide", which released in March through Asylum/Atlantic Records. Sheeran turned up in a blue kurta and jeans for the gig.
