Playback singer Shaan Mukherjee has been in the industry for over a decade now and yet the number of songs he releases year on year have diminished considerably. Although the singer admits he is not choosy about work, he explains that audiences have changed along with generations who want to hear fresh voices.DNAreports the 43-year-old saying, “There was a time established singers had a chance. But a time comes when people want change… new voices come in. I am happy I have been there for over 20 years.”
Amongst the newer generation of singers, Arijit Singh is a popular name. When Shaan was queried on whether he considers Singh competition, he replied, “No, he has gone way ahead. I would not call him competition. He is doing very well. When a talented person goes ahead it’s a good thing for music.”
The ‘Chand Sifarish’ singer has now teamed up with music composer Amaal Malik for a new single titled ‘Tum Ho Toh Lagta Hai’ which is produced by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series and features Saqib Saleem and Taapsee Pannu in the music video.
