Each year we see a list of top hits from the world of music that entertain and captivate the audience. But there is always change in the music format that pleases the masses. In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, veteran musician Kumar Sanu spoke about how times have changed and how the music scenario has changed in Bollywood as well.
Kumar Sanu started off by answering the question, ‘Why does he not sing anymore?’, Sanu was quick to say, “I cannot answer that question. It all depends on public choice, but then this statement also is untrue since people ask me the same question you have. I think that today in our industry there is a new system that is running now. Some lobbies and groups of people that get work done from only those musicians they know.”
When asked for more details of such cases where people have paid to sing, Sanu clarifies, “It isn’t money exactly that changes hands, but yes I have heard of cases where singers give gifts or such things to better their chance of being roped in as a singer. And this system is what is wrong.”
