Singers are no less than celebrities and they deserve to be honored for all their precious contributions to the Bollywood movies that all of us fawn over. Bollywood movies are famous for their integration of profound songs at various points of the film. However, we would all agree that along with the perfect lyrics, tune and melody, a flawless voice to match is necessary. Hence, we at BollyCurry would like to honor an illustrious playback singer of all times, Mr. Shantanu Mukherjee (Shaan), popularly known as "Shaan", for his phenomenal contribution towards the music industry, and the Indian cinema.

Gracing the face of this Earth on the 30th September, 1972, Shaan began singing jingles for advertisements as a young lad. At age of seventeen, his musical career kicked off with a single line in the song "Kitni Hai Pyari Pyari Dosti Hamari" featured in the movie Parinda. Being a determined individual, Shaan later signed a contract with Magnasound Recording Company along with his sister, and this truly marked the commencement of his musical journey.

Initially well-liked for his remixes, our Illuminated Artiste of the Month has a few popular solo albums to his name, one of which, Tanha Dil, bagged him the Best Solo Album award in the year 2000. Gaining recognition rapidly for singing in various languages, he has achieved the Best Playback Singer Award in the Male Category on numerous occasions for the hit songs "Jab Se Tere Naina" (Saawariya), "Chand Sifarish" (Faana), "Suno Na" (Jhankaar Beats) and "Behti Hawa Sa Tha Woh" (3 Idiots), whilst being nominated in the same category for creditable songs such as "Dus Bahane" (Dus), "Nikamma" (Kya Dil Ne Kahan) and "Koi Kahe Kehta Rahein" (Dil Chahta Hai).

Finally, not only was this multi-talented man an amazing vocal personality, he has also proved himself as a spokesperson by winning the Favorite Host Award in 2009 for the reality show, Star Voice of India. Shaan has indeed contributed his best for the music platform, and his record is still on going, making him one of the best playback singers in Bollywood.

BollyCurry would now like to provide a mini playlist of some, certainly not all, of Shaan's widely recognized songs for his endearing fans, all in random order.

    Shaan puts his heart & soul in each and every song that he sings no matter who has composed it. He might not be as talented as Sonu, but one can feel the efforts he has put in every song, and make it his.

    And, apart from being a good singer he is a great person. And one can feel the vibes even when he is on the screen.
