Singer Shaan has churned out multiple hits since his foray into the music world. He holds blockbuster tracks including ‘Behti Hawa Sa Tha Woh’, ‘Chand Sifarish’, ‘Mitwa Re’ and many more to his credit. However, there is one song that the 46-year-old star holds extremely close to his heart. According to him, his 2000 popular song ‘Tanha Dil’ remains his all-time favourite. Loved by critics and fans alike, it is also noted as the biggest hit of Shaan’s career. He made this revelation while responding to one of his Twitter followers. The song recently completed 10 million views in almost 20 years.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, a user wrote, "Tanha dil, tanha safar dhundhe tujhe phir kyon nazar, completes 10 million views. It's not just a song. It's a motivation for all those who walk alone towards their aim. A big thanks for giving this." Not too excited about the number of views, Shaan replied to the user saying, "Ten million views in 20 years. Numbers can be deceptive. Reality is 'Tanha dil' will remain my all-time greatest hit."
Filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh also weighed in on the matter. He wrote, "Also 'Kuch Kam' and 'Jab Se Tere' and 'Woh Pehli Baar' and ‘Suno Na’ of course. Following this, Shaan couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed by Sujoy’s comment. “Sujoy babu! You are too sweet,” he replied.

Shaan released his song ‘Hawa Aane De’ on the occasion of World Environment Day this year. Aimed at creating awareness about air pollution, he mentioned the offering has the power to convey messages in an effective way. Shaan, who also composed the song said, “The whole idea of creating this song is to create awareness towards air pollution. I would not think I am a major influence of sorts but I’m a creative person. I feel I have a social responsibility and so it stems from there.”
