Sufi singer Kailash Kher who shot to fame with his track Allah ke bande, says he will never go over board with his songs. The 37-year-old, known for his strikingly different voice has been in the industry for eight years, and has sung chart toppers in more than 70 movies. However, he doesn’t think that he can ever cross his limits by using words in his songs that are not appropriate, and which will depreciate the value of music.
“Music is a way of expressing thoughts and I don’t think I can ever sing songs which are meaningless. I can never sing a song like DK Bose," said Kher.
He feels that filmmakers resort to raunchy numbers to sell their films, and not for any musical value. “These songs only exist because the filmmakers feel that the song will help the movie be a hit and so these item numbers are still being made,” says Kher. The singer feels that there is lack of exposure for the young talent and a platform is required for them to showcase there talent.
“There is a lot of talent around. The opportunity has been limited to few singers,” he said. He also believes that apart from Bollywood songs there is something more to music that needs to be put forward. “Music is not only about Bollywood songs, but the art has so many genres to it. They haven’t been explored yet,” says Kher, whose band Kalisa will soon launch its fourth album.
