Raksha Bandhan, a day etched in the hearts of siblings across India, where beneath the tussles and teasing, the cherished affection finally finds its voice.
For those who came of age in the late 1990s, the mellifluous voices of Bollywood playback singers Shaan and Sagarika are the perfect backdrop to this roller-coaster sibling journey through their song "Aisa Hota Hai." Shaan and Sagarika's musical journey began in 1996 with their album "Naujawan," and their song "Aisa Hota Hai."
Shaan recently shared a heartwarming picture on social media, capturing the essence of Raksha Bandhan. In the snapshot, he can be seen tying a rakhi to his elder sister Sagarika Mukerjee. His caption, "Meri saari Behna ko #happyrakshabandhan ki Shubhkaamnaayein !!!! This picture may confuse you .. this is not a Rakhi pic .. but thought it to be quite apt..growing up .. it’s always been @sagarika.dc protecting me and saving me from trouble situations ..:))."
This message goes beyond the image, acknowledging the lifelong role his sister has played in safeguarding and guiding him through life's various junctures.
In an interview a few years ago, Shaan attributed his transformation into a singing sensation to the support of his sister Sagarika. "It was my elder sister Sagarika who encouraged me to take up singing," he admitted, highlighting the immense impact of her support on his success today.
Sagarika, an accomplished singer herself, recognized the potential synergy between their talents. She approached Shaan when he was just 17, with the idea of venturing into the music world together. With Sagarika's encouragement and belief, Shaan transitioned from a career in desktop publishing to the music industry at 22. Today, he stands as one of the industry's most versatile voices.
Excitingly, Shaan is set to grace the stage at the J. Everett Collins Centre for the Performing Arts on October 7th, 2023. Hosted by Jay-Ho! The Jay Kumar Show, this upcoming event promises a magical evening for music enthusiasts eagerly awaiting the chance to experience Shaan's hits live.
