Singer Karan Oberoi (right), who founded the pop­u­lar band, Band Of Boys in 2002, re­veals that, like any other band, at times the band mem­bers dis­sented on a lot of things. How­ever, their dif­fer­ences never reached the public space. “There were a lot of agree­ments and dis­agree­ments within the band, es­pe­cially when we cre­ated mu­sic to­gether. For­tu­nately, this has never hap­pened on stage. Most of the dif­fer­ences, we ei­ther [used to] sort out or agree to dis­agree and then a pop­u­lar vote de­cided the way for­ward,” says Karan, who along with his band mem­bers Chin2 Bhosle, Sher­rin Vargh­ese and Sud­han­shu Pandey, gave hits such as Gori, Teri Neend and Main Chal Diya. The band stopped mak­ing mu­sic to­gether in 2014. Karan says through the band, he wanted to start a new trend. “I al­ways felt that we lacked good per­form­ers in In­dia, who were great in terms of singing, danc­ing, looks and per­son­al­ity. It’s not that we didn’t have the tal­ent, I just felt that no­body had ven­tured in that di­rec­tion,” he adds. As Karan gears up for the re­lease his new in­de­pen­dent al­bum Choti Si Baat, he says he is grate­ful to his fans for giv­ing him the con­fi­dence to con­tinue mak­ing mu­sic. “The re­sponse has been amaz­ing when it comes to out­pour­ing of af­fec­tion, which I have got over the years, and is still there,” he says.
