Independent music struggling for support, says Ayushmann
Actor-singer Ayushmann Khurrana, who took the music world by storm with his soft Punjabi romantic song Paani da rang in his acting debut Vicky Donor, is now set to launch a single.
But he rues how independent music still has to struggle to get support. He is ready to release his own independent song O heeriye under the Yash Raj Music label. ‘I think with independent music, it’s difficult to grab more eyeballs in our country. You hardly get any support from music channels or radio stations. It is not even supported by the narrative of any film,’ Ayushmann said. After the success of Paani da rang, the 28-year-old sang two more songs- Tu hi tu and Saddi gali- for his second Bollywood film Nautanki Saala.
The video jockey-turned-actor accepts that being a known face helped his music gain recognition. ‘I wouldn' t have got that support if I was not an actor or if my previous songs were not big hits.
