All I Want For Christmas Is…

- For bandook to be a stronger community
Because let’s face it, we only have a voice if we speak up. So let us know how you’d like us to change this year. What you’d like to see more of, or less of. We’re listening!
2. For minimum remakes in Bollywood
When composers/music directors argue that they’re adapting old hits for a new audience, it’s a decent argument up to the point that they drown you in a tsunami of remakes. Bas karo yaar, stop listening to remakes. They’ll get the message.F
3. For independent music to grow
In India and elsewhere, the indie scene is growing. More DIY artists are making a name for themselves. While some got label support this year, others did it on their own.
4. Don’t just shoot or reboot, give us a show!
A-List international artists come to India every year. But it’s either to shoot here or to detox/reboot/just chill (here’s looking at you, Usher, Dua Lipa, etc). Why does the rest of Asia get appearance after appearance, but we don’t! And the only ones who do, have to be invited to a big fat Indian wedding. If any of you are reading this, haven’t performed here before, ask those who have and make it happen!
5. A Darshan Raval-Armaan Malik collaboration
God knows how we want our two favourites to do a song together. Maybe Santa Claus will get a little nudge from his boss?
