Artist Neha Bhasin is glad that free music is becoming the dominant focal point, however adds that she minces no words while discussing well known entertainers being a piece of these numbers. Bhasin told IANS: “How does she see the music industry right now evolving: Because of Covid everything is very in between in general. Where I do see a shift is that non-film music is taking centre stage again because films have taken a bit of a back seat.

“But music industry and non-film music main bhi wohi ho raha ki jo famous actors hain unko songs main daldo chaahe gaane kaisai bhi ho (But in non-film music they are putting bollywood stars no matter how or what the song is). I don’t know.”

The artist, who is right now seen as a competitor in ‘Bigg Boss OTT’, says she doesn’t see the development of music content. “I don’t see an evolution in content, I see an evolution in terms of it getting importance. There are some artists who are doing some good music, especially those who are independent, but with labels, I say that I get the feeling of selling soaps. That’s my personal opinion and it doesn’t really matter. It doesn’t affect what I do. I still do what I do,” Bhasin said.

“I always keep doing things that I want to do… As an artist you need to keep growing. You cannot just keep doing one thing for the rest of your life. An artist’s life is to lead and not to follow and you have to take those chances. You have to keep trying.”

“Bigg Boss OTT” is facilitated by Karan Johar. It streams on Voot Select.
