ALKA YAGNIK

Alka Yagnik, the once reigning queen of playback singing has become very selective and is rarely heard these days. When we asked her (during a press conference) as to why, she has become so choosy, the singer replied, ''I am saddened by the present day music scenario. Music is no longer melodious and music albums do not have a long shelf life.''

Recalling the super hit songs of SAAJAN and DHADKAN (by melody kings, Nadeem-Shravan), Alka said that present day composers do not compose songs like they used to be. In fact, the mentioned movies are evergreen and even after so many years, when she performs on stage she is always requested to sing songs from SAAJAN and DHADKAN repeatedly. And we are a witness to that, just a couple of days back!

Another reason for her doing less songs is the fact that her voice is sweet and her vocals soft while heroines like Bipasha Basu, Koena Mitra require more husky vocals. Alka says, ''I want to sing songs that are decent. Vulgarity puts me off. I do not want to sing songs that will make me feel ashamed.'' Alka also expressed her opinion on reality shows and choosing of winners via sms. Says Alka, ''Reality shows give a platform to new and hidden talents. They give exposure to these budding talents. But regionalism and emotions should not be the motivating factor for the people while choosing winners. They should choose winners only on the basis of merit and talent.''

Right on dot Alka, come back with a vengeance as we miss you!
