So I want to make sense in all my songs, and all of them should have mean­ing

Ju­bin Nau­tiyal, singer

Singer Ju­bin Nau­tiyal (above), who has sung the song Zindagi Kuch Toh Bata in Sal­man Khanstar­rer Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan, says that he will not sing a song with lewd lyrics. The singer be­lieves that songs of­fer more than just en­ter­tain­ment, and that vul­gar lyrics spoil a singer’s com­mu­ni­ca­tion with his fans, as well as with the mu­sic at large.

He says, “For me, mu­sic is more than just a source of en­ter­tain­ment. It is a way to com­mu­ni­cate with a lot of peo­ple at the same time. I want to make sense in all my songs, and all of them should have mean­ing. This is why I don’t re­ally sup­port vul­gar lyrics.” While new singers are join­ing the mu­sic in­dus­try ev­ery day, Nau­tiyal says that com­pe­ti­tion has never re­ally both­ered him. “The only thing that I want to com­pete with is my last song. My only in­ten­tion is to outdo my last song. I feel this is the only way to grow,” he says, adding, “If the au­di­ence likes to hear ac­tors singing their own songs, then what is the harm? They must go ahead and sing. There is enough place for ev­ery­one.” Known for singing songs such as Me­herbani in The Shau­keens (2014) and Ek Mu­lakat in Son­ali Ca­ble (2014), Nau­tiyal says that he does not have a favourite genre. “I don’t have a favourite genre as such. The only thing that mat­ters to me is that I must be able to imag­ine my voice in a song. I have to make the song com­pletely mine. This is why I make it a point to un­der­stand the back­ground of the song and meet the di­rec­tor be­fore I sing it,” he says.
