Music composer-singer Himesh Reshammiya has recently talked about singers in Bollywood during a conversation with Dainik Bhaskar. According to Himesh, it is very difficult for playback singers to make a place in Bollywood and that is why he wants to promote original singers.
Let me tell you, Himesh will soon be seen as a judge in the next season of the singing reality show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’. Apart from Himesh, Anu Malik and Neeti Mohan will also be seen on the judges’ panel. excerpts from the conversation
What Kind of Singer Are You Looking For?
This season we are not looking for a playback singer but an original singer. After doing almost 30 musical shows, I feel the atmosphere has changed now, especially after Covid. 18 years ago when Sa Re Ga Ma Pa did its first season, there were around 10 to 20 singers, 10 to 20 composers from the industry. Used to be in
At that time people used to come for playback singing for films. Today we have 7 lakh singers, 130 songs are being released everyday, there is no space in films like this. That’s why there is a lot of need for original voice to make your mark. We have set out in this search.
If memes are not made on social media then believe that the show is a flop
I think the culture of memes on social media is always beneficial. Memes give you attraction. This is a very successful trick from the point of view of social media, otherwise ‘Jungle Mein Mor Nacha, Kisne Dekha? That’s why if a meme is made of our show or contestants, it increases their reach. If memes are not made then it is as if the show is a flop.
No one has the guts to speak there are 7 lakh singers
Till now I have been a part of 30 shows. It is said for Himesh Reshammiya that the one who launched 300 singers on his YouTube channel and is doing it even today, how can he be fake? I do what I feel in my heart.
How is the bond with Anu Malik and Neeti Mohan?
I have worked with Anu ji in ‘Indian Idol’, Neeti has sung many of my songs. The bonding between all three of us is very good, there is good understanding. For some singers, all three of us have the same opinion, that is the beauty of this show.
Will be seen in the film ‘Bads Ravikumar’
Right now I cannot tell much about it but I would say that we will release this film very soon and in a very big way and its shooting has just started.
