B-towns most popular singers come together in an album launched to counter the rampant piracy which is causing huge losses to the music industry
Every now and then we see a bunch of Bollywood celebs coming forward and lending their names to causes that are dear to them. The last time we saw B-towners come out and support a cause was when social activist Anna Hazare decided to fight corruption. This time the most popular Bollywood singers have come together and launched an album, Salaami Ho Jaaye, asking people to show some respect to the creative people, who are suffering, because of piracy.
A popular website has taken the initiative and brought together artists like Sonu Niigaam, Mohit Chauhan, Shaan, Shankar Mahadevan, Kailash Kher and Sunidhi Chauhan to launch the first-of-its-kind musical anthem that has been created as a positive counterpoint to music piracy by focusing on celebrating Indian music artists’ creativity.
The multi-singer/collaborative song is conceived and composed by music director Shamir Tandon, who has earlier worked on the music of Madhur Bhandarkar’s Page 3 and Corporate, among others. Besides the leading singers, Asha Bhonsle’s granddaughter Zanai Bhosle, also makes her debut with this anthem and sings the last few lines. You can download the song free of cost here. Listen to the song and tell us if you liked it.
