A: I would say that the music scored in all these films are great. While the music in ‘Welcome’ is mind blowing, I liked the music in ‘Khoya Khoya Chand’ too. I have not watched ‘Taare Zameen Par’ and am ashamed about it. I have heard that the film as well as the music in this movie is tremendous.

A: It is a simple fact that remixes are made from original songs that have more value to any music aficionado. The idea behind making remixes is to make a hit song a hit again. The two are different and they offer a different kind of fun. I like both.
Q: According to you, is the music of the day better than that of the yesteryears, as good or worse?
