Busy on a tour and geared up for his performance in the city, singer Shaan chatted with us via email. We quizzed him on what the city means to him and what's in store at the Shaan Se concert. Here are some excepts �
Singer Shaan will be performing in the city
What encouraged you to spend the New Year's with Pune?
It was the obvious choice for New Year celebrations as it is away from traffic jams of Mumbai and yet close enough to have friends join us. Also, my audiences in Pune have always welcomed my performances with great enthusiasm.
Do you have a special set list for the event? What are the tracks you will be performing on?
Shaan Se is going to be all about high energy and non-stop dance songs. My fans can expect hits from 2011, including Ooh La La, Dhinka Chika and Chammak Challo. 'All is Well' is surely going to be my message to the audiences this new year because we all have seen such ups and down that we need to reassure ourselves all the time. Joining me on stage will be performers such as Rini (Saregamapa finalist), Argya (Sufi sensation from Pune), Url (India's top rapper) and a Rock band.
Are you content with the year 2011, and what does the year 2012 look like for you?
The year 2011 has been creatively satisfying and 2012 should see many film song releases including Ferrari ki Sawari, Housefull 2, It's my Life, Teri Meri Kahani and Tez.
What are you currently working on?
I should be releasing my brand new single Khudgarzii, a dance track in January 2012. I plan to follow it up with a new track titled Superbly. I have produced and shot singles from time to time, and I am looking forward to working with a new music company. 2012 should be a comeback year of sorts for me and I am all charged up.
On December 31, 8.30 pm onwards
At Sayaji Hotels, Wakad.
