Members of Pakistani band Jal feel that Bollywood music is still “stuck in the past”. Vocalist Farhan Butt feels that the Indian audience wants more experimental music. “People don’t want to listen to the same old style, they’ve now reached a saturation point,” he says.

The Pakistani band, came into limelight after Woh Lamhe topped the music charts. Although the song’s release was mired in controversies, it helped them gain foothold in Bollywood.

Regarding the band’s influence, lyricist Mumtaz Goher says, “I am a big fan of Junoon and I respect the Sufi influence they bring in to their music. But we don’t do that. We just focus on simple melodies with a classical feel and western arrangement.”
