Shaan won’t sing a song on alcohol

A disclaimer saying ‘alcohol is injurious to health’ ­seems to lose significance when there are numerous party numbers being made today which promote alcohol. Singer Shaan, however, is not a fan of this inclusion of alcohol into every party song. “Alcohol is being promoted heavily as something positive. I feel this is crazy. Every party song has something to do with ­alcohol,” says Shaan.

Not only does he ­disapprove of the lyrics, but he also feels that the ­picturisations make it worse. “The dance moves as well as other picturisation are very provocative,” says the singer.

With so many objecting to lewd lyrics in songs these days, Shaan feels relived to not have been offered such a song before. “I have never been faced with such a situation. I feel that if the song and its lyrics are justified in the film, then it is ok. Lewd lyrics have been on since the 70s. Sometimes people go overboard and put in such songs just to sensationalise, which is not right,” says the 42-year-old, who has recently launched his first album with his band Superbia. “I want to create some new sounds,” he says.
