Singer Shaan attacked in Guwahati for singing Bengali song


Pebbles, paper balls pelted at singer Shaan for singing Bengali song during his performance at the Sarusajai stadium in Guwahati on Sunday, October 28. A video of some people shouting "This is Assam and not Bengal" went viral. Shaan was heard saying, "Don't make this political. Never do this with an artist." 

The ace singer stopped his performance mid-way and walked off to the backstage. Later, Shaan took to his Twitter handle and replied to a fan who was unable to attend his concert. He wrote, "Just for the records ...loved my Assam Tour!! Saw the most fascinating sights...made new friends..had huge turnouts at every concert. Over one unfortunate incident, it would be very wrong to Tarnish this Beautifull State!!! Whatever happened was in the heat of the moment."

"India is one and we should not hold qualms against any language," the singer tried to appeal to the audience. Shaan also told the audience that he was performing despite running a temperature.
