Singer-songwriter Prateek Kuhad’s first Bollywood track, Kho Gaye Hum Kahaan from, Baar Baar Dekho has become a success, but he’s not overwhelmed.
The 26-year-old Delhi based musician says, “I am not getting carried away by the song’s success.”
“I think in terms of both production and songwriting. Kho Gaye Hum Kahaan is very distinct from most of the other music coming out of Indian mainstream cinema. We purposely wanted to keep a very minimal production, because that’s what we felt the song needed, and maybe that’s what sets it apart,” he says.
Despite the song’s success, Prateek, who recently performed in the Capital, insists Bollywood doesn’t remain a priority for him. “I want to be a skilled songwriter and musician and I want to release quality songs. If one’s aspirations are to be a music director/composer in the film circuit, then you have to prioritise and push to get feature film projects as much as possible. If you want to stick to being a musician/performer and release music and acquire a fan base, then that’s not really necessary. But of course, it definitely helps because you get access to a huge audience very quickly,” he says.
