The ‘Bedardi Raja’ singer recently appeared in an interview and revealed some deep dark secrets of the music industry that bother her a lot. She shares that even acclaimed singers like Ankit Tiwari and others have to depend on Bollywood stars to make their songs a¬† blockbuster as they add face value to the song.

“Our singers are pleading with actors to get a song in their films. I am like, ‘Why is this happening? You are Ankit Tiwari and have given multiple hit songs. Why are you self-depricating yourself?’ Even Ranbir Kapoor is getting red cheeks thinking why is the singer acting this way.”

She adds that the music community has lost its self-respect. “We, the singing community, are staring at him and thinking ‘What has happened to our community? Why are they pleading with the actors’? Why is Arijit Singh saying sorry to Salman Khan on Facebook? He is a bigger star in my eyes and will remain for a long time.”

“This is not a disrespect to their art or craft but every community has its self-esteem. This is why I don‚Äôt want to be in that caste system. The loss of sense of self-esteem is the deracination we should be worried about.”

She also revealed that despite being nominated for an award on an award show, singers are made to be seated behind while the front seats are reserved for the actors who might not even have a nomination.

Sona goes on to say that actors get all the credit for songs they haven’t even bothered to lip-sync perfectly.

“This is why the Hindi film industry is suffering. The sheen has gone and Bollywood is not able to do Bollywood like it used to be.”

Sona has also earlier said that she has been told by an eminent singer to sing only at ‘women’s festivals’. The bold and beautiful singer has been advocating for women’s rights and calling out the evils of society without thinking of the consequences. And I think this fighter spirit in her should be lauded.
