Bollywood music eclipsing creativity of singers: Sonu Nigam

Mumbai, July 10 (IANS) Sonu Nigam, who has rendered several hit Hindi film songs, has hit out at Bollywood music, saying it eclipses the talent and creativity of other musicians and singers in the country.

"As long as there is film music, these (individual) albums cannot do well and singers' creativity and their value will always suffer. They will always be secondary to actors and their identity will be at the back stage," Sonu told IANS in an interview.

He pointed out that films today are made at big budgets and much is spent on their promotions. Therefore, all major music companies take interest in promoting film music, leaving other singers and private albums on the back foo
