Singer Kailash Kher also expressed his grief and offered condolences to Shaan and his family. "Shaan’s mother passed away. Prayers to the Almighty for the salvation of the departed soul. It is a prayer to Lord Shiva, the ruler of all the three worlds, that our brother Shaan’s family should get the strength to bear this sorrow. Eternal prayers," read his Hindi tweet roughly translated in English.
Many other Bollywood celebrities like Tiger Shroff, Sonnalli Seygall, Sonali Raut, Sophie Choudry, Aditi Govitrikar, Salim Merchant, Ankit Tiwari, Anu Malik and others paid their tributes to Shaan's mother on his Instagram post.
In 2014, Shaan had credited his mother for encouraging him to pursue his career as a singer. His father had passed away when he was just 14. She raised him and his sister Sagarika single-handedly.
"How she balanced both the roles of a single mother and working woman is a miracle. She always had a smile on her face. She encouraged me and Sagarika to do whatever we wanted to do. She never forced her will on us. Anuji (Malik; composer) fondly remembers that in 2000, when I had just got a bit of a foothold as a singer, my mom told the leading composers at that time that she wanted to stop singing chorus, lest I would get embarrassed if we had to sing in the same studio. Far from embarrassing me, I’ve always been proud to be her son," Shaan had told Hindustan times in the interview.
Meanwhile, Shaan has released his new single Rang Le, which is a blend of rock and sufi music.
