  • "I don't think there is anyone in the western world, who can sing like that. I am jealous," said the international pop-sensation 
  • When asked any plans for Bollywood, the 'Shape of You' hit-maker claimed, "I would love to work in Bollywood."

Grammy-award winning singer Ed Sheeran, who performed in Mumbai, said on Sunday that he was "really envious" of the talented Indian singers and added that he would love to work in Bollywood if given a chance.

While talking exclusively to ANI, the 26-year-old singer said, "Last time, when I played here, it was pretty amazing and I really enjoyed it, so I'm really pumped up. I think, I've become more popular here since my last concert, as there are lots of people, who have come to see the show."

"I'm really envious of how Indian singers use their voices and how they sing. I don't think there is anyone in the western world, who can sing like that. I am jealous," he added.

When asked any plans for Bollywood, the 'Shape of You' hit-maker claimed, "I would love to work in Bollywood."

The British singer and songwriter took the stage donning a vibrant blue Kurta, with the logo of his 'Divide' album.

"It is such a pleasure to be back in India!" announced Sheeran, and won over the already enthralled audience.

In the almost two-hour-long concert, Sheeran performed tracks from the 'Divide' album, including 'Perfect', 'Nancy Mulligan', 'Galway Girl', 'Castle on the Hill', and 'Eraser', and after much awaiting gave his fans the most awaited song 'Shape of You'.

Sheeran also crooned to his other hits, such as 'Thinking Out Loud', 'Don't', and 'Sing' from the 'Multiply' album, the power packed 'You Need Me I Don't Need You' and the evergreen 'The A-Team' from 'Plus' album.

The singer arrived in Mumbai amid high security on Friday and on Saturday was busy partying with Bollywood celebrities. Bollywood filmmaker Farah Khan hosted a party for the 'Shape of You' hit-maker, which was attended by some of the big names of the industry. The 'Thinking Out Loud' hit-maker is expected to be attended by more than 10,000 fans.

This is Sheeran's second musical concert in India. His first concert in India was held in 2015.

In May, Justin Bieber performed before an audience at Mumbai's DY Patil Stadium.
