Shaan halts Guwahati concert mid-way after section of audience chastise singer for crooning Bengali song
Singer Shaan halted his Guwahati concert after a section of the audience threw paper balls and stone at him for singing a Bengali song.
Singer Shaan had to stop his concert mid-way after a section of the audience pelted stones and paper balls at him when he started singing a Bengali song at the Sarusajai Stadium in Guwahati on 28 October, according to Nagaland Post.
"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.
