It’s hard to tear your eyes away from a stage with Mohit Chauhan on it. Amid a full house of enthused fans on Saturday, shouting out requests for Dooba Dooba and Masakkali, the singer from Himachal seemed right at home on stage in Chennai. “I was apprehensive the first time I came to Chennai,” he admitted at The Music Academy.

“It was for a recording with Rahman saab for Rang De Basanti,” he went on to mounting cheers, and added, “but the energy was beautiful... there was tranquility in his studio.”

Organised by The New Indian Express and Apollo Hospitals, the concert set hearts aflutter. Perhaps his snazzy new look — shoulder-length locks and moustache as against his signature clean shaven style had something to do with it!

The favourites of the evening were Tujhe Bhula Diya (Anjaana Anjaani), a playful Ala Barfi (Barfi) and a final powerhouse Sadda Haq (Rockstar).

And from his Tamil repertoire, the singer certainly didn’t disappoint with Po Nee Po (from movie ‘3’). His Tamil pronunciations might have been a tad anglicised, but as Chauhan promised, “the feel” was all that mattered.

The packed event, from which several music lovers had to be turned away because there were no seats left, was powered by United India Insurance  in association with Repco Bank, Dr MGR University, Honda CBR 150R, Alcatel One Touch, OLX and Meenakshi Group of Institutions, Radisson Blu City Center and Radio City.
