How Shaan Became a Singing Sensation?
If you are an ardent 90s music lover, we know what you miss the most– the 90s pop culture. What a golden era it was for Bollywood and indie-pop music! Creativity and music at their best. One such iconic singing superstar of the 90s and early 2000 in the Indian Bollywood singing industry is Shaan (who also happens to be a major crush of Indian girls during that time). Remember Tanha Dil?
Shaan, aka Shantanu Mukherjee, was born on 30th September 1972 in Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh, in a Bengali family. His father was music director and composer Manas Mukherjee, and his sister Sagarika is also a singer.
Before debuting in his first chartbuster, ‘Tanha Dil’, Shaan used to sing jingles for ads, after which he began to sing remixes and cover versions. Shaan’s official singing career kicked-off when he signed up with Magnasound recording company, along with his sister Sagarika, and recorded a few successful albums, including the hit album Naujawan followed by Q – Funk, of which a million copies were sold.
Shaan pop song Loveology was also a huge hit among the audience. He won the MTV Asia Award for Favorite Artist India for his solo album Tanha Dil. After carving a niche for himself in the indie-pop industry, there was no looking back for Shaan as he went on to become one of the most versatile and coveted singers of Bollywood. His voice was so melodious and unique that he was the most sought-after Bollywood singer for the top male actors.
Some of his chartbusters include ‘Musu musu Haasi’, ‘Behti hawa sa tha woh’, ‘Chand sifarish’, ‘Dus bahane’, ‘Main aisa kyun hoon’, ‘Ladki Kyun’, Bin puche mera naam or pata’,’ jab se tere naina’ and many more blockbuster songs. However, he got selective with his choice of songs recently, and that’s why we get to hear his melodious voice less these days.
Shaan has been quite active in other aspects of music as well that keep him connected with his fans. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, he said, “I believe in living life to the fullest and as a result, I love to try my hand at everything that I get: be it judging, coaching new singers, composing, acting, all of it. Because we get one life and don’t want to give up any chance to indulge in something new that’s the reason you will find me everywhere”.
Guess that’s right! You can find him performing at various national and international concerts with his charismatic voice and a million-dollar smile. Shaan’s career and passion for music are an inspiration to all those music lovers out there who desire to be Bollywood’s top playback singers and earn fame.
