The Cannes Festival 2018 took place recently on May 11, where Indian artists were seen giving their presence including Bollywood and Pollywood. Daler Mehndi was one of the Indian artists seen in the Cannes Film Festival.
The Cannes Festival named until 2002 as the International Film Festival and known in English as the Cannes Film Festival, is an annual film festival held in Cannes, France, which previews new films of all genres, including documentaries from all around the world.
Daler Mehndi will be seen singing songs for movies ‘Soorma’, ‘Shaad Ali’, ‘Harjeeta’, ‘Subedar Joginder Singh’, ‘Happy Bhaag Jayegi Returns’ and ‘Sui Dhaga’ in 2018.
“Modern singers are exploiting lyrics to portray an image of Punjab that is false. Daru, kudiyan, bandookan, gadiyan…is that all Punjab is about?” said Mehndi.
He said the modern punjabi singers are copycats, he stated, “We have a generation of copycats now, busy sending out images of being cool dudes, wearing fake imitations of brands, being high on drugs, and gathering fake online views.”
