Shamshad Begum doesn't mind remixes

Legendary singer Shamshad Begum, who has been awarded Padma Bhushan, says that she has no objection to classical songs' remixes and likes to watch reality shows.

Shamshad Begum, 90, who lives at Powaai in Mumbai, said that she doesn't mind when the songs (and the music) which she rendered are remixed and sung in an altogether different tone.

Delighted at the award, the classical singer said that today there is greater freedom, which was unthinkable for youngsters in her age. "Small kids sing and dance on the stage and TV shows", she said.

The eminent playback singer said that she liked watching the reality shows on televesion in which teenagers and kids perform and compete in front of audience. "They are so small, yet so confident and their own parents encourage them", said Begum, who is living a quiet life in the Mumbai suburb.
