Bollywood Singers: What Happened when They Forgot Their Lyrics While Performing!



Adele recently forgot the words of her song during a  live performance. Subhash K Jha asked Bollywood singers if they’ve faced a similar embarrassment

Arijit Singh: “It happens to me all the time. I make up new words somehow and continue, hoping no one will notice.”

Anoop Jalota: “Many times. And I never carry any book Of songs. At the time of crisis of this kind poet in me wakes up and the new correct line is ready before people realise. Ye Daulat bhi lelo ye shohrat bhi lelo. Bhale chheenlo mujhse meri jawaani. Magar mujhko lautado Jagjit waapas wo ghazlein ruhani wo shamein suhani.Just giving you an example of how some quick thinking can save the situation.”

Vishal Dadalni: “It happens to everyone. As long as one doesn’t get rattled, it’s easy to recover. No need to cover anything up. We’re all human, even the best of us. Imperfections and improvisations are what make live performances unique and precious! Otherwise, the crowd could just hear the songs played “perfectly”, on their stereos at home. The audience comes to concerts to share their love with the artist, so I have found, they are always supportive.”

Kavita Karishnamurthy: “Sometimes when  it has happened I’ve just kind of grinned and continued. It has happened only in my own concerts where I’ve sung for at least an hour and the audience by then has known me and maybe grinned along”

KK “Ha ha lot of times. I’m sure It happens to most singers when performing on stage.What do I ?Well, I just turn an impromptu lyricist.”

Alka Yagnik: “It has never  happened to me so far.Thank God!”
