Kailash Kher calls Yo Yo Honey Singh’s popularity a phase!

Kailash said the phase will pass since nothing sustains forever

Yo Yo Honey Singh’s rap songs are a rage, but people have also criticised them for their crass lyrics. Playback singer and composer Kailash Kher feels it’s all a phase as every place has “good and bad things” and “Hindi music industry has quality content too”.

Asked about his reaction to Honey Singh’s popularity amongst youth, Kher told IANS: “It’s no big deal, it is a phase, it will also pass on. What happens is we make too many opinions and judgments about things. Nothing survives and nothing sustains forever except love and purity.

“Today we are in one phase, tomorrow we will be in another. Whatever you are marketing or writing about too much, would also reflect in creating the phase. People are liking and disliking everything and anything.

“There are good and bad things today. If the type of music you are naming is being loved, then rest of the musicians should be at home and should be unemployed. But everyone is busy – so in a way (all kinds of) people are there. Everyone has a share of audience and a share of receptiveness.”

Honey Singh’s chartbusters include Party all night and Lungi dance and now he has shot with actors Kareena Kapoor Khan and Ajay Devgn for the song Aata majhi satakli in the forthcoming film Singham Returns.

Kher says “there are good and bad things in every area” and that “we have quality content also”.

“If we don’t have quality then definitely we won’t survive. Nature has its own course of balance and you cannot do anything extreme. The moment you do something extreme, it balances on its own. So if you have bad things in name of creativity you will also have good things to balance it out,” said Kher, whose music style is influenced by Indian folk music.

He rose to fame with his superhot track Allah ke bande, and has grown to sing in 18 languages for Indian films, and in over 300 songs for Bollywood.

His famous tracks includes Teri deewani, Tu jaane na – unplugged from the film Ajab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani.

The singer recently appeared as a guest on MTV Indies show The Ride. It’s a quirky chat-show hosted by Indie personality Rishu Singh who will, every week, invite Indie celebrities from various fields and discuss their personal interests, passions, their take on today’s music, family, friends and a lot more.
