Aditya Narayan Shares His Struggle In Bollywood, “No One Gave Me Work For 6 Years!”
While there is a very big debate going on in the Bollywood industry and people are saying that star kids have it easy, there are many who have come out to talk about their struggle. Now, Aditya Narayan, son of the great singer Udit Narayan, has come forward to talk about his struggle in the industry. He said that despite knowing and working with so many big names and even giving hits in movies like Ram Leela, he struggled to get any work.
Speaking to Bollywoodlife, Aditya Narayan said, “Even after giving two big hits in Ram-Leela, nobody gave me work for 6 years thereafter.” He added, “I have started getting work after 25 long years. Last year, AR Rahman had called me for a recording after 20 long years. This year, I have sung songs for Vishal-Shekhar. I have known them since I was 18. I used to host Sa Re Ga Ma Pa and they used to judge the show. And still, they didn’t give me any work at that time.”
Aditya Narayan further spoke about how the songs he sang for a record label started getting dubbed by other artists. That’s when the singer started questioning himself and his talent. He was quoted saying by the portal, “I began wondering whether I can sing or is it just a figment of my imagination that I can sing well. I questioned myself, my singing skills, my capabilities and my work. Though I became popular on TV but when it comes to making a name in the music industry, I still feel there’s a long road ahead of me. This is just a small motivation to keep me going.”
Later, Aditya went on to reveal that he picked up Television and started hosting because he had EMI bills to pay.
