Arjun Kanungo, who gave us the party anthem of 2015, ‘Baaki Baatein Peene Baad’, has launched his next title ‘Fursat’. A romantic, soulful number, ‘Fursat’ is all about the feeling you experience before saying goodbye to your loved ones.
In an exclusive interaction with IBNLive Movies, singer Arjun talked at length about his new song. Talking about 'Fursat’, the singer said, “'Fursat’ is a love song. Even if we consider the twist that the singer offers, ‘Fursat’ is about explaining the hardest feeling in the world -- seeing off your loved ones.”

According to Arjun, the song that also features Sonal Chauhan, describes the feeling of a heartbreak in the most convincing and poignant manner. The singer, who shot to fame with ‘Nike Nike Shots’, feels that in the recent times Indie artistes have finally found their niche amidst Bollywood’s popularity.
“I grew up when Pop music was at its peak. We had independent artistes and popular songs that did not belong to any movie or movie star. That platform is back with YouTube and social media, and is helping artistes like me who do not just want to be associated with playback singing.”
When asked about the current music scene in India, Kanguno said that singers like Honey Singh and Badshah deserve a lot more credit than they have received. “Honey Singh and Baadshah introduced a revolution that was needed in our music industry. They gave confidence to singers and made an identity independent from any star.”
Arjun feels it doesn’t matter what kind of music is produced because artistes perform with the sole aim to entertain fans. “Their music reflects a certain mood. If you don’t find that ‘mood’ entertaining, fans have the option to move to other artistes. Trust me, it's very hard to find a niche of your own in this industry, kudos to them for being able to do it successfully.”
‘Fursat’, which was initially scheduled for a December release, had to postponed to ensure the impact of 'Baaki Baatein Peene Baad' wasn’t affected.
"We were prepared to launch the song in December, but 'Nike Nike Shots' just refused to go down! The biggest challenge for any Indie artiste is his previous success, so we all decided to let the party anthem settle before we introduced 'Fursat'."
On being asked about his future plans, the singer said, "I plan on doing a web series after the launch of the song."
Arjun, who was also discovered on YouTube, feels digital is next big thing in the entertainment industry. "Every big production house is going digital, thus opening a wide gate for talents to showcase themselves."
