Po­lit­i­cally-rel­e­vant mu­sic not my cup of tea, says Benny

Pop­u­lar singer Benny Dayal (above) has im­pressed ev­ery­one with ro­man­tic num­bers such as Rehna Tu (Delhi 6), Kaise Mu­jhe (Gha­jini) and has had a sim­i­lar suc­cess with party num­bers such as Badtameez Dil (Yeh Jawani Hai Dee­wani) and Bang Bang (Bang Bang).

In­ter­est­ingly, the 31-yearold singer tells us that he is open to making so­cially rel­e­vant songs, but dis­misses the idea of com­pos­ing po­lit­i­cally rel­e­vant num­bers. “I don’t want to be a part of any revo­lu­tion (laughs). I don’t see my­self start­ing a move­ment of any kind. Hon­estly, pol­i­tics is a very tricky sub­ject and un­til and un­less you are a part of it, you shouldn’t really com­ment on it, be­cause you never know who you might end up hurt­ing,” he says, adding, “So I will al­ways stay away from such mu­sic. I don’t think it’s my cup of tea. I don’t have clue about it ei­ther.”

Benny also tells us that he would in­stead like to make so­cially-rel­e­vant mu­sic. “I’m all for so­cially-rel­e­vant mu­sic and I think it’s im­por­tant with so much hap­pen­ing around us in the world. Take, for ex­am­ple, the re­cent at­tack in Paris. I would love to be a part of a song which talks about spread­ing peace and love, and which talks about hu­man­ity. It would be really fan­tas­tic to be a part of such mu­sic,” he signs off.

Un­less you are a part of it, you shouldn’t com­ment on it — you never know who you end up hurt­ing
