Singer-com­poser An­garag Ma­hanta (left) aka Papon has sung a lot of songs in Bol­ly­wood, which have all been great hits. The 40-yearold who sang in the re­cently re­leased film Sul­tan, talks to us about his jour­ney in the in­dus­try, When asked how he feels about Bol­ly­wood now he says, “I am sat­is­fied with what­ever I have done so far. I don’t have a god­fa­ther in the in­dus­try un­like many oth­ers. Some might say that I have sung very few songs, but I can’t sing ev­ery other song right? Let’s not feel bad with what we don’t have and just en­joy what we have.” On whether he would like to try some­thing dif­fer­ent in Bol­ly­wood, he laughs, “Noth­ing like that. I mean, I am not run­ning af­ter any­thing. I am happy with the way things are. Of course I want to be more in­volved in the film in­dus­try.” He adds, “There are many gen­res and a lot of new mu­sic di­rec­tors with their new sounds are mak­ing a mark in the in­dus­try. It will be fan­tas­tic to work with them.” He re­cently com­pleted a US tour with Farhan Akhtar, and is cur­rently work­ing on an al­bum. “It will have all kinds of songs,” he says.
