New Delhi, June 10 (IANS) Bollywood lyrics are becoming more gut-wrenching - picking up themes from contemporary realities, say musicians Piyush Mishra, Swanand Kirkire and Rahul Ram.
"I think Bollywood lyrics has changed over the years. The events that are happening around are creeping into Bollywood playback music. It's more earthy now," said Swanand, who is working on R. Balkikrishnan's "Pa", which stars Amitabh Bachchan.
"Do you really think its changing - don't they compose the same songs all the time," laughed Piyush, who is just back from the US and plans to take it easy for the next few months because of ill-health.
"I compose songs and write whenever and wherever I feel like - even on the streets. They are real," Piyush said a little later.
