If unpredictability and lack of recognition in showbiz saddens playback singer Kunal Ganjawala, growth and expansion of the industry gives him hope and happiness.
“I recorded a song for ‘Bol Bachchan’, but now it’s not going in the movie. They said it will be used in some other project,” Ghanjawala said.
“So, something that has to be used for ‘Bol Bachchan’ is now not being used in the movie… the work is so unpredictable. But I’m not bothered to ask about the song as they are my close friends,” he added. Directed by Rohit Shetty, ‘Bol Bachchan’ is coming out July 6.
“I also sang a song for Salim-Sulaiman for a Yash Raj Films’ project that featured John Abraham. Unfortunately, the film got shelved and the song is not being used anywhere,” he added.
Getting one’s due is another problem for singers, he said and added, “Normally, singers are not invited for the movie releases. Ironical as this may sound, everyone wants to see only the actor and actress… and this is understandable,” he said.
“We (singers) don’t go not because we don’t feel good enough to be there, but because we are not given the due respect,” added the singer who had participated in a singing reality show.
The singer’s latest offering is Har ghadi for debutante director Gitanjali Sinha’s ‘Yeh Khula Aasmaan’. Penned by Ravi Chopra and composed by Anand Milind, the song explains the meaning of life.
Kunal entered the film industry in 2002 with the song Deewana aate jaate in the More >

Nazia Sayed (MUMBAI MIRROR; February 14, 2011)
The civic body has issued Bollywood singer Kunal Ganjawala a notice, asking him to prove the garage he allegedly built in the parking plot of his housing colony at Pali Hill was not illegal.
The civic body action came following months of bickering between Ganjawala and his neighbours at Girnar Apartments.
Things between them turned bitter to such an extent that residents filed a complaint against Ganjawala at Khar Police Station.
Neighbours have a long list of allegations against the singer. Apart from the alleged garage in the parking space which residents say remains locked on Ganjawala’s instructions, they say he illegally built an office on society premises.
Residents further allege Ganjawala gets abusive and prevents residents from using the building terrace.
One of the residents and committee member of Pali Hill Residents Association, Amarjeet Bhatti said, “Ganjawala is troubling the members since October last year.
On October 10, we sent him a polite letter requesting him to do away with the illegal garage and office he built on society land.
And this man misbehaved with the watchman who took the letter to him. He and his wife behave rudely with everyone in the society.”Girnar Apartments in Pali Hill. Kunal Ganjawala (right) has accused residents of “needlessly More >

Informs a source attached to Life Partner, “Govinda was unhappy with some of the words in ‘Poorza Poorza‘ which he believed came with a negative connotation. The original lyrics go as ‘Mare Hum, Jab Seene Se Dil Gaya, Hai Poorza Poorza Hil Gaya; Jab Poorza Poorza Hil Gaya, To Dum Sa Nikal Gaya‘.
