We had our differences, but never took them to stage: Karan
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.
