The song Burj Khalifa from Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani starrer Laxmii is a chartbuster. It has received a great response and recently, we interacted with the composer and the singer of the track, DJ Khushi. He has earlier worked on the remix version of many Bollywood songs, but Burj Khalifa is an original track composed and sung by him.
When it comes to DJs people think that they can only play for parties or in clubs and discos, and make remixes of the songs. While talking about people’s mindset towards DJs, DJ Khushi told us, “In this world, not just in Bollywood, we stereotype things, we stereotype professions. When Mr. Akshay Kumar started doing movies, so everybody thought he could only do Khiladi movies, then he came into comedy, then he did different things, now he is doing movies like Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. So, we like stereotyping things and I am one of those who like to break the stereotype. When I told people that I want to make original music, not many took me seriously and not many could believe that I could do it. There’s one thing in this life that I don’t understand, the word ‘no’. So, the more I hear no, the more I know I want to do it.”

“A lot of people still think that it just happened once. Now, the point is that we have to give hits again and again and live up to a reputation or rather build a reputation where people change this opinion and I don’t want to do this just for myself but for every DJ who wants to do something like this. I will break the stereotype and I will also compose love songs. We already have a very big love song coming in a very big movie. I can’t give many details, but it’s happening. So, I will break all the stereotypes where people think that if he is a DJ he will only make upbeat songs and remixes. Internationally, DJs do everything, and the same DJs when they come to India, people gather in thousands to just go and attend their concert. But when we started there was absolutely no infrastructure and even today there’s not. We have come a long way, but there is still a very long way to go,” he added.
