When asked if he feels that English and Indie music in India is going to capture the market, he said, “It needs to be helped and it needs to be nurtured. I think nothing is wrong with film music. It’s beautiful but it has been commissioned like, there you have to write for a situation and those are limited but I think here whole universe is your imagination.”

“Sometimes Indie music actually inspires movies and I want that to happen. I want a song from Indie music to go in film music. It is not a compulsion but I feel people’s mind should never be closed.”

When asked what benefit singers and musicians are going to get through Nexa Music, he said, “They are mainly going to get exposure from this venture. We are not telling many things because we don’t want to promise too much and not deliver. This is just the first step and second step is something on which we are working on.”
