Bollywood music and songs have been degrading over time.
Nowadays, Bollywood does not produce great talents it used to do earlier, especially in the golden era.
It looks like they have lost their creativity.
All they do is reproduce other’s work or make remixes of the original melodies. They are not ready to take risks. Their focus is on the money rather than the quality of the music. The music culture in India has majorly been taken over by Bollywood and there is no escaping it.
But are we even trying to look around and explore new melodies?
Turns out, we are! If you are tired of listening to those awful remixes, here are some artists who will freshen up your minds with their music:
