Rapper Starboy LOC claims sure large stars ensured that his music was dropped from the 2018 movie, Yamla Pagla Deewana 3, starring Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol.
The music was known as “Laila bhannd ho gayi”, recollects the rapper, who’s standard for his tracks akin to “Dilli se hu”, “Goldy Golden” and “Jo na naache”.
Starboy LOC advised IANS, “My song ‘Laila bhannd ho gayi’ was taken two years ago saying that it would be selected for a film. I had got a call from the director and the casting director saying that we really like your song ‘Dilli se hun’, and we need something on similar lines. We have a scenario where Bobby Deol goes to a terrace and gets drunk, and the girl with him also gets drunk. So, we need a song related to it.”
Starboy LOC added, “I suggested I have this song called ‘Laila bhannd ho gayi’. I sent them the song, and they (the filmmakers) liked it and kept it. They said that the song is done for the film, and I said ‘okay’. Then the contract happened and we got the amount. We had not asked for the amount but they said they would give something for the number. It was a short amount.”
The rapper stated that he didn’t need cash, however a break within the Hindi movie business.
“We didn’t need cash as we have been getting a break in Bollywood, and that too in an enormous movie akin to ‘YPD 3′ — a Deols film. So, we thought the song should move forward and we would earn later,” Starboy LOC said.
Without naming anyone, Starboy LOC said his song was dropped because of interference of “big stars”.
“All of a sudden, after waiting for two years, I got to know (the song was dropped). The director said ‘main kuch nahi kar sakta (I can’t do something)’. Big stars got here in between they usually known as a brand new music producer. They dropped this music and did another music.”
“Call it nepotism or call it anything, if this has happened to me, then how many people must have faced this. How many contracts must have been made, how many films must have been made and how many songs must have been wasted,” stated the rapper.
He stated he’s grateful that he had a contract stating that if the music was not used within the movie he was free to launch it.
“Luckily, we had a contract that if they didn’t use the song, we could release it. Still there is no value in it. Music, sound and vibes keeps changing and musicians have to work accordingly,” he revealed.
“All these big shots in the film industry who come in between and do this sort of a thing — inhi ke bharose hum baithe hain (we bank on them),” he stated.
He stated if the makers didn’t just like the music or if the music didn’t go together with the scenario, he would have understood.
“But I was told about the scene that my song would fit into, and that they wanted the song. I had a contract with someone else but I changed. I faced so many problems. I waited for two years. But the same thing happened.”
He says he needs to deliver his bitter expertise to fore, in order that he can spotlight comparable issues of different singers.
“I want to be the voice of everybody. If this has happened to me, I don’t know how many people are facing this,” he concluded.
