Show-stopper ‘singer’ Rishi Kapoor regales fans

Evergreen actor, Rishi Kapoor seemed to be in an upbeat mood as he interacted candidly with all his fans at a recent musical ‘live’ retro concert which played only Chintuji (Rishi)’s chartbusting songs.

The flamboyant Rishi sang his landmark song ‘Main Shaayar Toh Nahin’ on stage, as the audience went into raptures. The ‘live’ concert co-hosted by Anurag Pandey and Kavya Sharma, showcased performances by eminent playback singers like Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, Shailendra Singh, Jolly Mukherjee, Javed Ali and Babul Supriyo.

Speaking about how he would sometimes undermine the potential of iconic songs, Rishi revealed that when for the ‘first time’ he was made to hear such tracks such as ‘Daffliwaale, daffli bajaa’, ‘Om Shanti Om’ and the title-song of ‘Yeh Vaada Raha’,  he was hardly impressed with the lyrics and wondered aloud whether they were worthy of being picturised.  

“Strangely, all such songs which I had disliked turned out to be chartbusters. My wife, Neetu even remarked that ironically, the songs I was initially rejecting, later on emerged winners in music-biz,” chuckles Rishi, who strongly feels that contemporary Hindi film songs are deviating from the our culture of traditional melody that made retro-songs so immortal. Honestly, I have no bias or enmity against modern day composers, they are doing their best. Optimistically speaking, I hope that soon there will be a grand revival of haunting melodies which used to be the hallmark of the golden era,” shrugs the Kapoor as he offers his homage to classical virtuoso, Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, whose death anniversary was also being observed that same day.
