He is the real name of Indipop genre. Starting his career with ad jingles, Shaan proceeded with remixes and cover versions. His first breakthrough came from 'Naujwan' which was his first album in collaboration with sister Sagarika. From that point, there was no looking back in Shaan's career and he went on to sky heights with his melodies.
From Indi-pop to playback singing Shaan has evolved a great way, with several hits to his credit. In the 1989 movie Parinda, when he was only 17 years of age, Shaan sang a single line in the song, "Kitni Hai Pyari Pyari Dosti Hamari". Shaan has sung playback vocals for several hit Bollywood films including Fanaa, Masti (2004 film), Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Om Shanti Om, Partner, Jab We Met, Welcome, Saawariya, 3 Idiots, Taare Zameen Par etc.

His blockbuster like "Nikamma" and on the other hand soulful rag-darbari based "Paigham Laya Saawan" show the extremities of his vocal chords. Other songs like "Tanha Dil", a pop superhit and "One Love" which belongs to hip-hop genre along with "Bhool Ja" is an excellent rock Ballad.
