Kannada musician Anup Sileen has said that he will never bow down
to the Bollywood singers like Sonu Nigam, Hariharan, Kunal
Ganjawala. All the songs of movie Eddelu Manjunatha are
sung by Kannada singers. The music is composed by Anup Sileen.
"Kannada film industry has got rich variety of singers. Why
should I bring Bollywood singers to our industry. In future, if any
director or producer asks me to bring any of the Bollywood singers,
I would quit the movie," he said firmly.
Citing the example of his previous movie Gooli He said,
"Hariharan declined to sing in a high pitch for a song in the
movie. These singers don't have respect for Kannada. They only ask
high salary without looking into the market,"
of a singer is totally dependent on the composer. If the music
director is confident, he can give hit songs. I will return my
salary, if my songs sung by Kannada singers fail to attract and
entertain audiences," he added
However, it can be remembered here that Anup music directed
Gooli and Nanda Loves Nandita songs are popular songs.
