MUMBAI: National Award winning music director and vocalist Shankar Mahadevan, who performed some unplugged versions of songs with his sons Siddharth and Shivam, says "MTV Unplugged" gives an artiste total freedom.

Royal Stag Barrel Select MTV "Unplugged" Season 7 started its multi-city tour live concerts from here on Sunday.

Sharing his excitement, Mahadevan said: "This is very special to me as I got to sing with my sons. The show has great viewership and the response that we are getting is phenomenal. Usually, the platforms tend to dictate to you what needs to be done and what is commercially viable, but the beauty of this show is that the artiste gets complete freedom to feature whatever is in his/her mind."

Shankar performed some hit tracks like "Dil Dhadakne Do", "Uff teri adaa", "Sajda", "Mitwa" and "Ik junoon".
