திரைப்பட பாடலாசிரியர் குல்ஸார் பழைய பாடல்களை ரீமிக்ஸ் செய்ய குல்ஸார் எதிர்ப்பு ரீமிக்ஸ் ரீமிக்ஸ் செய்வதற்கு குல்ஸார் கண்டனம் film lyricst gulzar gulzar against remixing old songs
His shift towards songs like 'Beedi' and 'Kajrare' raised many eyebrows and Oscar-winning lyricist Gulzar says it is a reflection of changing times. But the 74-year-old song-writer is completely against one trend, that of remixing old songs, and he is not ready to listen to the excuse of changing times here. Gulzar feels that it is a crime against the cinematic history of India. "I am against remixing. The songs are now used only to dance. Who are you to temper with someone else's creation. I blame the present generation for destroying cinematic history. It is like repainting Ajanta and Ellora. They don't need a song to listen, they want to dance on the tunes and thus wreck havoc on the old songs", he said.
