LONDON: The Indian film industry is changing

LONDON: The Indian film industry is changing and films no longer have to have a song and dance sequence to be successful, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan said on Wednesday.Khan, who was in London on a brief visit to promote his latest film, told Reuters in an interview that while “Fan” had a theme song, it did not actually feature in the movie and had been used purely for trailers.”The younger filmmakers and everyone, they know that, you know, we don’t need to just shove in a song anymore,” he said.”I don’t think it’s going to take away. It’ll take a lot of time to take the songs out of us, but every film will have a different requirement,” he said.Bollywood films traditionally have had complex musical scores and film makers have rarely resisted the temptation to insert a song and dance sequence into a film.
