QUEEN'S ROAD: Popular playback singer Shaan will perform at The Courtyard, Phoenix Marketcity, Whitefield, this Friday at 7 pm as part of the fourth season of Alive India in Concert.
Shantanu Mukherjee, popularly known as Shaan, hails from Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh. His father Manash Mukherjee was a music director and his grandfather Jahar Mukherjee, a lyricist. When Shaan was 13, his father passed away.
He began his career singing jingles for advertisements. He then partnered with his sister Sagarika to create pop albums such as Naujawan and Q Funk that helped establish the duo in the music industry.
The two took a big step forward with the Roop Tera Mastana, a remix of Rahul Dev Burman’s song. Shaan became a sensational hit post the release of his album Tanha Dil: the track Bhool Ja struck a chord with millions of fans.
Shaan’s remixed versions of old songs such as Hum Bewafa and Dil Kya Kare were some of his best works. He has played host in music reality shows like Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champs and Star Voice of India.
Shaan had acquired a pop-star status by the time he made his foray into Bollywood.
Some of his notable numbers include Musu Musu and Woh Pehli Baar from Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi, Woh Ladki Hai Kahan from Dil Chahta Hai, O Humdum Suniyo Re from Saathiya, Dus Bahane from Dus, Ladki Kyun from Hum Tum, Main Hoon Don from Don - The Chase Begins Again and Chaand Sifarish from Fanaa.
