Ed apparently became friends with Bollywood stars Kunal Kapoor, Naina Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan at a wedding celebration in Mumbai recently where they got along so well he landed himself a small role in the sequel to Happy New Year.
The director Farah Khan told The Mirror, "It was a surprise when my cousin Zubin called me from London to say that Ed Sheeran was going to be in town and wanted to meet up with me and my Bollywood friends."
He added, "It was very gracious of Abhishek to let me bring Ed and his team to his home...Not only did Ed hit it off with Abhishek but, before I left, they both also decided that Ed would act in Happy New Year 2!"
Don't worry, Ed's not totally ditching music or anything. That would just be absurd. He's just branching off. Nothing wrong with that, right?
Think Ed will be a good actor? Surprised he's considering it?
