Talking about the change in the industry over the years, he said: “Change is taking place every moment, but it is not necessary that every change is a progress. Different ways of using music, different kinds of compositions have come up — incidentally, the compositions don’t leave a long lasting impact on the listener — this change I have noticed.”

The 59-year-old actor’s political satire “Jai Ho! Democracy” hit the screens on Friday.

The film, which is written and directed by Annu’s brother Ranjit Kapoor, is a dark comic satire on Indian politics and takes a dig at the existing social and political morass the country is staring at currently. It does not feature any musical track.

The film also features ace theatre artists like Om Puri, Satish Kaushik, Adil Hussain and Seema Biswas.
