Singer Shaan talks about his absence from Bollywood music scene
Singer Shaan says the primary reason for his absence from Bollywood music scene is the fact that the newer generation has taken over the industry, leaving fewer opportunities for senior artistes like him. The voice behind hits like 'Bum bum bole' and 'Chand Sifarish' among others, says he was disheartened for a brief period as not much work was coming his way. Here's more.
I have worked on my shortcomings now: Shaan
Recalling his low phase, Shaan said, "From 2010 to 2013-14, I wasn't able to understand what was happening. Why I wasn't getting the work that I was getting earlier? I couldn't understand but I figured that it happens as new people come in and they take over." "But now, my belief in my own singing has grown. I've worked on my shortcomings," he said.
Shaan's now busy making independent music, ad films
Shaan says he's now busy doing his own independent music, ad-films, and collaborations. "With film songs, the A-league stuff isn't happening. I've been open to the idea of singing for newer production houses. Many advised me to not take this up. I feel, I was new at some point of a time in my life and somebody did give me an opportunity," he said.
Shaan believes people are enjoying live concerts more nowadays
Shaan believes doing live concerts are the best way of connecting with the fans. "Music as an industry is going through a lot of changes. I don't know how well paying it is to be a singer today. If you can entertain through live performances then sky is the limit as people enjoy it. People are enjoying it," the singer adds.
