‘If online clicks make you happy, you are a loser’

Lucky Ali

In today’s day and age, most artistes are trying hard to stay relevant. For singer Lucky Ali it’s all about staying “irrelevant”. He says that the number of online views his songs garner don’t thrill him. “I am happy when people like it (his song) but if you feel happy that ‘oh my god! I got so many clicks’, then you are a loser because that’s what you depend on,” he said. 

“You should depend on what your heart says. Do you feel good about what you are doing or did you do it because you want ‘that’? That is temporary. What is permanent is what your heart feels,” added the 61-year-old. Lucky, whose 1996 pop hit O Sanam is still hummed by fans, zoomed into Bollywood spotlight in the 2000 blockbuster, Kaho Na... Pyar Hai, singing  Ek pal ka jeena and Na tum jaano na hum.

He, however, gave it all up and went away from the limelight. Today, he says he doesn’t make efforts to stay relevant. “I try to stay irrelevant because it is not about me. It is not about an individual. It’s about ‘we’,” he explained. —IANS
