All 90s kids would remember seeing popular faces featuring in music videos. After the trend died a few years back, 2020 saw it making a comeback with several television celebrities starring in the music videos of singles. Also, with the pandemic-induced lockdown halting shoot, music videos became a great work opportunity for many. With most celebrities shotting at desolate locations with limited crew members, it even turned out to be a safer experience.
Bigg Boss 13 winner Sidharth Shukla, while talking to indianexpress.com mentioned that since it’s a short term commitment, music videos have become popular projects in recent times. He also said that there are songs from various genres being made, and that gives actors a chance to get into a different zone with each video.
Srishty Rode also shared that music is something that connects with everyone. “As for us actors, with not much happening in terms of shoots, it’s a good break. It’s also the easiest thing to shoot right now given you need minimum people around, and can wrap up work in just a couple of days. The trend of music videos was quite popular about two decades ago, and guess it’s back,” the actor said.
Echoing a similar thought, Dheeraj Dhoopar also told us that given most of the current actors have grown up watching music videos, it’s also exciting for them.
As the year comes to an end, here’s looking back at all the music videos starring popular television celebrities.
