There was a time when only small punjabi tint in hindi songs used to make song a BIG hit and it was not long ago…just about a year back.
And then came Imran Hashmi era which not only included Imran but that bunch of singers and lyricists which completely reformed industry into new shape. These singers included Kunal Ganjawala and Himesh Reshammiya who possess different vocals as compared to existing singers. Their songs included arabic phrases and it seems that they are capturing music market to much extent – these days.
Now, even my favourite song playlist incude many arabic songs like Dil Deewana, Sini Re Sini, Bheege Honth Tere, Bure Bure, Didi etc.
