Kabir Singh starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani is one of the super hit films of 2019. The film’s music album recently crossed 1 billion streams on popular music streaming platform. This proved that Kabir Singh’s soulful music is stilling ruling the hearts of millions of fans and is at the top of their music list. They are still in love with the film too.
While several media outlets carried the story and mentioned Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani, singer-songwriter Jasleen Royal took to Twitter to call them out for not mentioning composers, lyricists, and singers of the album. “I thought.. its the composers, lyricists, and singers who make a music album! # Kabir Singh” Tweeted Jasleen as she shared the screenshot of the headlines.
One of the users reacted to it and stated that ‘stars sell’, to which Jasleen wrote, “Meanwhile think about Loveyatri’s album. It had newcomers in it.”
Several other Twitteratis commented on her post. “The right people never get credit in this industry. Should we blame the #bollywood or the #media for this? Too scared of popularity loss to call a spade a spade!” wrote one user.
Another wrote, “The industry doesn’t care about giving credit when it’s due . and we all know its views can be manipulated by ads. This is just cheap promo, it doesn’t even result in real achievements to the artists and the actors.”
‘Kabir Singh’s album is unique because, after a long span, Bollywood came with an album that had all original songs and no recreated sounds which made it extraordinary. Another important reason for the winning score of the album have been it’s singers like Sachet Tandon, Shreya Ghoshal, Vishal Mishra, Arijit Singh, Parampara Thakur, Armaan Malik, Jubin Nautiyal, Tulsi Kumar and Akhil Sachdeva. Meanwhile, the lyrics of the songs were exceptionally written by Irshad Kamil, Manoj Muntashir, Mithoon, and Kumaar.
