Shaan rues the fact that his songs and offers are dwindling
With the new crop of playback singers
on the music scene, there is very less we get to hear from
Shaan and he says it is the producers and composers who are no
longer interested to have his voice in their projects.
The singer has churned out hits like Koi Kahein Kehta
Raahein from Dil Chahta Hai, Chaand Sifarish from
Fanaa, Jab se tere Naina from Saawariya, Behti Hawa Sa
from 3 Idiots. But now his songs and offers are dwindling.
"It is about offers. It is not that I am choosy or have
increased my budget. If people are not calling me then what to
do. May be people still like my voice but producers, actors or
music directors don't like it (voice) any more. May be my
voice is not suitable for the kind of songs that are coming
out today," Shaan told PTI.
The 41-year-old says he has always been co-operative and
never had difficulty in terms of money matters. The singer
seems disheartened but hopes to get good work.
"The fact is there is a lot in me as a singer even today.
And lot of songs have fallen short because of the kind of
voices who have sung it. Today the kind of choices that are
made (of singers) makes the life of song shorter," Shaan said.
According to him, people today try to alter or tweak
things (voice) electronically but voice has its own beauty.
"Among the kind of voices that are there today I feel, I
have a better voice and also more tuneful. I fail to
understand why no one realises this," he said.
Shaan will be seen in Jhalak Dikhla Jaa, showing his
