Anu Malik a front line music director of the Indian movie industry also commonly known as bollywood, is currently visiting Ontario – Canada. In conversation with him he reveals that he is on a talent search looking for possibly a great voice for Indian silver screen. He admits that music in Indian movies is not of the same standards as it used to be. But is pretty confident that people still prefer the oldies and movie makers will soon realise this. This musical graphs and standards will soon see a gradual rise. Anu himself comes from a musical family as his father was a music composer as well. He himself has seen his ups and down in this often tough and competitive movie industry. After getting a lot of awards and recognition for his filmy music tunes, lately he has not had a hit album. As he himself has been a music composer since 1977 and in the 90s Anu composed hits for films like Phir Teri Kahani Yaad Aayee, Baazigar and Jaanam.
The 2000s saw him winning the National Award for his music for J.P. Dutta's Refugee and the Film Fare Special Jury Award for his outstanding music. He won the Filmfare Best Music Director Award for Main Hoon Na and Baazigar. He was nominated 14 times for the Filmfare Award for Best Music Director. He is known for his singing for his private albums like Dekho barish ho rahi hai, Tera Chehra, Dhua dhua and an English album, Eyes and has rendered his voice for some main stream movies as well.
Canada he claims is full of outstanding talent both for bollywood movie and music industry, and yet has to be fully explored by movie and music directors and composers.
We wish all participants Good Luck and also wish Anu Malik that his search bears fruits.(Write - up & Photo Akbar Warris 416-371-9849)
