"India is one and we should not hold qualms against any language," the singer tried to appeal to the audience, as per the same report. He also walked off the stage but soon returned at the request of the organisers, a person backstage told the publication. Shaan also told the audience that he was performing despite running a temperature. It is not known whether the organisers have lodged a complaint against the miscreants.

He also tweeted regarding the incident.

The singer has also responded to the news of him being attacked with paper balls and stones, calling them lies.
