Madhushree started her Bollywood career by singing in the film ‘Moksha’ in the year 2001.
The famous singer of Hindi and South films, Madhushree, says that outsiders coming into the film industry should not go into depression due to upset with rejections or politics. According to him, many people have to face such difficulties, but this does not mean that you will lose confidence. He said that I wish Sushant would have understood this and understood the importance of life and faced the difficulties well.
In a special conversation with Bhaskar, Madhushree said, ‘Like Sushant Singh Rajput, I was an outsider. Came to sing in Mumbai in the nineties. I have also faced a lot of rejections. I could not find work because of the politics of the industry and the monopoly of the singers. Despite that I did not bow down. ‘
Taught music by going to ‘Suriname’
He told, ‘To live a small country in South America’ Suriname ‘also worked as a music teacher. I wish Sushant Singh Rajput could have done this too. Of all the outsiders, I say that don’t give up. Do not fall into depression or drugs due to rejections. There is nothing better than life.
There is a constant neglect in Bollywood
He further said, ‘I have given 32 hit songs for AR Rahman. There are hundreds of songs in the South. The song ‘Kanha So Jaa Jara’ in ‘Bahubali 2’ has got 220 million views. It had the music of music composers like MM Karim. I have sung songs for every major musician in the South. Despite that, there was no invitation from the big music companies and musicians based in Mumbai. This has been happening continuously for 20 years. But I am not broken. Did not get frustrated. Never went into depression Suicide thoughts were not allowed in my mind.
If I wasn’t there, I was given a chance
When she came to Mumbai 20 years ago, she sent auditions to more than 400 songwriters, musicians, producers and renowned music companies as her music audio cassettes. Still did not get a chance. At that time, only Kumar Shanu, Alka ji, Kavita Krishnamurthy and Anuradha Paudwal used to listen to everyone. ‘Rajesh Roshan ji also got it in the movie’ Moksha ‘because Alka Yagnik was not available on that day. Then Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy definitely gave some opportunities. But then he meditated in Chennai near AR Rahman and got work there. That chance was also met with great difficulty.
Raged against me when I got work
’20 years ago, Rajesh Roshan and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy were given opportunities in Mumbai stay, everyone’s ears were raised. I was told by many composers that the then singers through sound records had all given me false information about me saying that Madhushree is South based. She will not be able to sing. However, today I am satisfied with YouTube channel and my South world. ‘
Madhushree has sung hit songs for many Bollywood films including Saathiya, Kal Ho Naa Ho, Swades, Yuva, Kisna, Paheli, Rang De Basanti, Jodha Akbar and Bahubali 2.
