Arjun Rampal Is DJ-ing At Privee' & Your Music Career Doesn't Matter

Posted at March 27th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in

So we just came across a post that Privee’, one of the best nightclubs in Delhi has put up, about Bollywood star Arjun Rampal playing an exclusive DJ set on an upcoming Saturday night and we’re getting painful flashbacks of Bobby Deol getting behind the console in July last year. Needless to say, there was ample mockery made of the gig before and after the event, and we were confused about wasting a weekend night vs. missing out on the funny post opportunities. Although later DJ Bobby Deol explained in a later interview that he was practically conned into playing, and thought he just had to do a guest appearance.

Now with mega-star Arjun Rampal; hot since decades, still coming in movies, and definitely having more star appeal and fame, is also a disappointing choice to headline a night at a club where many aspiring, and technically more talented DJs would kill to play.

He has been known to DJ before, especially at his famous club in Delhi; Lap, popular for exorbitant displays of wealth by the trust fund babies of our Delhi society. Playing at your own club, if you have an interest in being behind the decks, is still something to overlook as just a privileged person’s.. well, privilege. But being broadcasted as an actual DJ, with an inspired logo (see below), is just insulting to the ever-increasing talent in the country that is actually producing good music and working hard to even get some free gigs for exposure.

Or maybe it’s just a common font choice for the flyer.

It’s disheartening to see Bollywood stars taking advantage of their celebrity status to get perks in other fields as well. And clubs and promoters using that in just a money-making publicity event. Despite our misgivings, it’s probably still going to be a packed club with Rampal fans and critics eager to see what’s going to happen. So win-win for the star and the club, and the only people who lose out are the young DJs trying to get even a meagre slot to play their own music.
