'I've nothing against Bollywood songs'

'I've nothing against Bollywood songs'

Singer Shubha Mudgal says that she is not equipped to do justice to Hindi movie songs as she gears up for the fourth edition of her music festival Baaja Gaaja.

Mudgal has sung for films like Laga Chunari Mein Daag (2007) and ‘1920’ (2008). She is not against Bollywood but the veteran singer, with deep roots in Hindustani classical, says if everyone keeps running after creating masala songs for the Hindi industry, it may pose a threat to other genres of music specific to Indian culture.

“Today, we see Bollywood music being played in every household, mostly because it is easily accessible. I have nothing against these songs that even I enjoy. But it would be tragic if we lost out on other kinds of music a lot of which might never come back,” says Mudgal.
