Bigg Boss 14: There are Camps, Favouritism in Bollywood Music Industry, Says Rahul Vaidya
Mumbai: Singer Rahul Vaidya, one of the contestants on the new season of the reality show “Bigg Boss”, says it takes more than just talent to make a mark in the Hindi music industry. The 33-year-old singer is best known to the audience as the second runner-up in the first season of the singing reality show, “Indian Idol”. His discography includes an album titled “Tera Intezaar” and an unplugged version of the song, “Beintehaan” from the film “Race 2”.
According to Vaidya, most of the singers active in films today have served as assistants to music directors or have been associated with music labels. Like Arijit Singh would assist Pritam, Armaan Malik is brother of music director Amaal Mallik, and singer Jubin Nautiyal is attached with the label T-Series, he said.
“There are a lot of reasons for a singer to get a film song. It doesn’t only require talent, there are a lot of other things. There is favouritism, preference, you can call it lobbying also, there are camps in Bollywood (music industry),” the singer told .
