New Delhi, Aug. 8 -- A singer herself, she comes from a family that owns one of India's biggest music labels (run by her brother Bhushan Kumar). So, when we spoke to Tulsi Kumar, we just had to bring up the ongoing copyright tussle between labels and singers. What's her take on it?
"I usually refrain from commenting on this matter... I feel that everyone in the music industry gets their due - from artists to singers. The music company spends a hefty amount to make the song, promote and create awareness about it, while a singer gets a fee for singing and earns by singing the same song at many events," says Tulsi, who has lent her voice to a song for actor Kareena Kapoor Khan, for the latter's upcoming with actor Ajay Devgn.
Mention another controversial topic: songs with crass lyrics, and the 28-year-old - who started her career with devotional songs - says, "Good lyrics are extremely important. And, I'm not comfortable singing 'cheap' lyrics. However, it may work for some and listeners may enjoy them, so I see no reason to sit on judgement."
The Delhi-born singer started training in music when she was all of six and is happy that she has made her mark. "I always wanted to be a singer, maybe because of my family background, but also because I love singing," she says, adding, "I'm happy that I've steadily made my mark and have a few great offers such as singing - like singing for Kareena and Ajay's film to that for Ranbir Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez's next."
