I will only recreate a song if I fail to create an original: Ankit Tiwari

MUMBAI: Bollywood's new melody prince singer- music composer Ankit Tiwari set a musical benchmark in the industry after 'Aashiqui 2'. The industry has been following the trend that he brought back since. But, Tiwari is not someone to follow the ongoing trends. Recreation is one of the biggest industry fades at the moment, but Tiwari bluntly states that he dislikes it.

Tiwari who was present at the Lit O Fest, compared Bollywood music industry with Hollywood to understand where Indian artiste lack. He explained that Hollywood movies have songs in the background, whereas Bollywood gives separate space to songs in the movies. Hence, Hollywood singers are the face of their own song and Bollywood songs have celebrity faces.

“I have faced a similar situation. When I worked on ‘Aashiqui 2’, for a long time nobody knew that I had composed and sung for that movie. These are issues faced by almost every Indian artiste. I am glad the new generation is setting a different platform altogether like Sanam Band and Vidya Vox who are YouTube sensations and face of their own voice,” said Ankit Tiwari at the panel discussion.

He further stated that we have a lot of talented artistes who don’t hit the ‘Fame’ button due to lack of platforms. Reality show participants usually go missing due to lack of opportunities. Tiwari has plans of creating a non-film platform for such artiste. “This platform will be a wonderful experience for independent artiste too,” said the singer.

The trained classical singer further shared his views on Bollywood recreations. “Every music or song has a particular audience. My audience is different. I am a composer and I will always make original songs. I will only recreate a song if I fail to create an original. I do not enjoy remaking songs,” said the ‘Tum Hi Ho’ hitmaker.

The coming months are packed for this talented singer-music composer as he will be touring the USA for his concerts. Apart from that his next Bollywood project ‘Bhadshaho’ will release in September this year. Tiwari is also planning a single sometime this year. This will be his second single after ‘Badtameez’.
