Mumbai: Despite having given chartbusters like “Gal Ban Gayi” and “Sauda Khara Khara”, indie popstar Sukhbir fails to understand the reason behind his songs being a misfit in Bollywood films.
“I have never been able to understand the film industry here (Bollywood). I know quite a few people here like Akshay Kumar, Farah Khan, Rakesh Roshan. I have helped quite a few people, have given songs but things did not work out. May be the song did not fit in,” Sukhbir said.
“We are not sitting ideal, we are making and supplying songs, but things are not working. It’s about luck. I think Mika got lucky. There are people who are lucky and some are not,” he said.
The “Ishq Tera Tadpave” singer feels happy that music has evolved in films and videos as well. “We are going through a nice phase. I think Honey Singh changed the taste and feel of music and it’s good,” he said. “Change is much needed. We are going through melody, beat, rap. Old songs are recreated with new swag and it’s good,” he added.
With new crop of singers also entering Bollywood, the Punjabi popstar feels the new generation is talented.
“We all need change that is good. We need contemporary outlook and they are all really nice,” he added.
