In a world full of Tony Kakkars, it has become hard to find the next Lucky Ali. And similarly, no new artist is recording songs like Kitni Haseen Zindagi Hai Ye or Maaeri any longer.

As a result, we see Dheeme Dheeme or Bijlee Bijlee on loop on Instagram. People like Dhinchak Pooja have gained fame in the world of likes and comments.
