Steven Wilson, the founding singer-songwriter-guitarist of English rock band Porcupine Tree, is set to treat his Indian fans with a Bollywood-themed music video. The 49-year-old musician has, over the years, built a steady fanbase that extends across the world, including India, where he recently performed at the NH7 Weekender and he now plans to shoot his next music video here.
Wilson said, “I have watched many Bollywood films but I can’t name them. I love Bollywood dancing. In fact, we are thinking of making a video with some Bollywood touch for my next record. I’m thinking of doing it in India with Bollywood dancing. “There’s one song I have got, which is actually quite joyful and we tried running some Bollywood clips that we found on internet with that song and it worked well. So, we are looking forward to it.
It would be an experimental thing for me to do and very surprising for the fans.”
Wilson is keen to visit India once again as he wants to explore the country apart from his scheduled gigs. “I’m really looking forward to visit India again in December. I would love one day just to come there and spend some time. And, I’m hoping to shoot this video for the next album there. “There’s so much joy about the way Indian people embrace life, music, culture and their tourists. It just puts a smile on your face and you don’t get that everywhere.” Wilson may have come to India for the first time for official concert but he was not surprised by his fan following.
