Singer and composer Arjun Kanungo says nobody is interested in making original music for films

As a discussion surrounding the music mafia in Bollywood rages on singer Arjun Kanungo has weighed in with his own remark. The singer is famous for his songs like Khoon choos le', 'La la la' and 'Baaki baatein peene baad'. Kanungo has said that people in the Hindi film industry lack the focus on music.
 
In an interview with IANS Kanungo said, "I think what's lacking is focus on musical artists. Everything is focused on actors and scripts. I have done a few films in my life and I can tell you that nobody is truly interested in making original music for a film. It's always in the confines of the script."
 
"While that is a good thing and a bad thing, we should have more films which work the other way around, more around the artists that are making the music, and I think that will happen soon," he added.
 
He continued saying, "You are going to find a lot of scripts next year with a lot of original music because the one thing that the lockdown has done is it has shown us where we were lacking in creativity and I think that it is going to change."
 
Speaking about his time during the Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown Arjun said, "It's amazing how self-sufficient I have become in lockdown. The thing is the lockdown makes you more focused. I didn't have anything else to do right now so I have been super productive, and I have written around 12 tracks that I am dying to release now. I am ready for 2021.
