Bollywood has seen some of the best singers of the country in its yesteryears. From the era of Kishore Kumar and Md. Rafi to the era of Shaan, Kumar Sanu, Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik, from the era of Sunidhi Chauhan, Shreya Ghoshal, KK and Mohit Chauhan to today’s era of Armaan Malik, Arijit Singh, Shalmali Kholgade and Neha Kakkar, the music industry have seen them all.
But perhaps the golden era of bollywood music industry is still considered to the one after 90’s when singers like Shaan, Sonu Nigam, Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik weaved their magic on the audience. It is a debatable subject as to whether the music industry in Bollywood has hit a rock bottom today or not as very few originals are created and most of them are remakes of old songs, but what remains a fact is that 90’s was an exceptional era for bollywood music lovers. Two singers who are still a big name today but started their journey around that time are Shaan and Sonu Nigam.
It is an individual’s delight to hear the two sing whenever people heard them sing in their respective film songs or live concerts. So imagine the intensity of magic when the two melodious voices performed together? One might wonder when did they sing together? But the fact is yes they did and in an occasion where the entire film industry enjoyed the charm of their voice while sitting live at the show. It was the ‘Mirchi Music Awards 2011’ where Shaan and Sonu Nigam hosted a segment of the show. Not just were they entertaining but they simply mesmerized the audience when they started singing together. Check out the video to see them perform together –
