It`s Father`s Day and Shannon K feels truly honoured having legendary Kumar Sanu as her father and she has done her best in following his footsteps and making him proud. The singer-actress shares a special message and is grateful for everything.
"Dad was my first inspiration, my guru who inspired me towards music. Music fascinated me and lit up that spark within to follow his footsteps. I feel truly honoured to be the daughter of such a legend. I`m always grateful and thankful to God as I`m a foster child and his support was massive behind my mom`s decision to adopt me."
She further adds, "I`ve learnt so much from him. One thing I’ve learned from him, is his positive attitude towards life. He doesn’t think negative. He always takes everything in a very positive way. He`s the best father as he makes us laugh, takes Anna and me to watch ghost movies because mom is scared of such movies. Dad always makes time out of his hectic schedule to be with us.”
Shannon K recently made headlines at Cannes Film Festival for her amazing fashion outfits in support of Ukraine and was also the only Indian-American actress invited at the prestigious Indiana Jones premiere. She wore a beautifully sewn piece by Ukrainian designers Blanc de Blancs & Lana Marinenko to represent Ukraine suffering from the constant war. She wore a Diamond tiara to represent Indian Goddesses as the power of women. She opted for matching neck pieces and bracelet along with her all-white look. The singer looked simple yet striking for her first appearance at Cannes.
Talking about her Cannes debut, Shannon says, "This honestly feels surreal. I am glad to get this opportunity. I`ve worked hard to make a tiny place in the big industry for myself and I see it as my beginning. I am so grateful and humbled; by God`s grace, many more to come."
Shannon, who started her singing career in 2018 with Poo Bear, got into acting in 2020 with The Big Feed in Hollywood. She was also a part of the anti-bullying song, `Give Me Your Hand`, with David Arquette, Ed Westwick, and Brittany Snow, which has received love from the global audience.
