Guru Randhawa, who composed and sang for films like Hindi Medium, Tumhari Sulu, Dil Juunglee, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Blackmail, and is gearing up for a nine-city tour followed by Da-Bangg tour in the US and Canada, says Bollywood has added a lot to his career as he feels on top of the world when people from all around the world dance to his tracks.
About Bollywood adding weight to his career, Guru says, “Absolutely, it has added a lot to my career. It is a new experience and I am getting to learn something new every day. Bollywood, no doubt has a wider acclaim and it feels top of the world to see people from all around the world dancing to my songs.”
The singer, whose songs like Suit Suit, Lagdi hai thaai, Ban ja rani, Kaun nachdi and Patola were featured in films and his other chartbusters are Lahore, High rated gabru and new release Made In India, which received over 23,000,000 views since its launch on June 5.
“Punjabi songs have been a rage in Bollywood since a very long time. The lyrics, beat and the meaning behind them give an emotional touch and connects with youth. Yes, bringing these songs to Bollywood adds more charm and every person from different parts of the nation can hear them. It gives a worldwide platform. But, my songs were already a hit with over 100 million views/comments and multi-hundred thousand downloads on online websites before coming to Bollywood. So, I believe it is the kind of music one makes, that makes it popular,” he says.
He said the amount of talent emerging from India is incredible and Bollywood helps in providing a platform for such artistes.
