“MY HOBBY is my profession and therefore I keep on composing creatively. I work as a student on each project and thus have always get the best output,” said renowned singer and music director Himesh Reshammiya at a ‘meet the press’ programme organised at Indore Press Club today.
Himesh, whose compositions have been chartbusters, was in the City to host a live concert at Nehru Stadium. Accompanied by two finalists of the television show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ - Himani and Twinkle - Himesh said that live concerts are closer to the heart of an artist as compared to recordings since the artist can see live reaction of people and it enthralls them, too.
While speaking about vulgarity in music videos, Reshammiya said that good music should be presented to the audience and not tainted videos that could misguide the youth. ‘‘As a singer I always try to keep my music videos clean.’’
On being asked about talent hunt programmes and their commercialisation, Himesh said in spite of all sorts of criticism, talent hunt shows serve as a platform for the exposure of fresh talent. Before launching of these programmes it was impossible for a middle class boy or a girl to find a seat for him/herself in the industry.
‘‘These programmes not only provide them a stage, but also help them become popular among masses,’’ he added.
Himani also addressed the programme. Press Club secretary Pravin Khariwal conducted the programme and president Vikas Mishra proposed the vote of thanks.
