Punjabi songs are mood lifters: Guru Randhawa. Bollywood films have started featuring an increasing number of peppy Punjabi songs some new and some remixed versions of old tracks. “With the change in the culture of the town (Bollywood), people are preferring and enjoying party songs. So I am glad to see the people grooving to and loving the Punjabi tunes. I also personally feel that Punjabi songs have a different vibe and energy, which helps in lifting one’s mood completely,” told Guru Randhawa to IANS.The Punjab government last month announced the setting up of a state culture commission to curb the growing tendency of vulgar songs. Some numbers have been termed misogynistic as they focus on girls, while others glorify premium end cars and alcohol.What does Guru have to say on this?
“Punjabi songs are fun. They help to cheer up the environment and the mood. We just want to create fun songs. There is nothing specific that we talk about in our music,” he said. Asked if he is trying to bring a fresh view on Punjabi songs with his work, he said: “Yes, we are trying our best to spread the culture of Punjabi music all over the world. With the traditional rigid Punjabi music, people always had a myth that the music is very conventional, but nowadays we are really thrilled to see how people are loving the tunes and beats of Punjabi music.”As for his own work, Guru, whose real name is Gursharanjot Randhawa, is loving all the attention he is getting.
