Born as Shantanu Mukerji, popularly known as Shaan, is the most loved singer in Bollywood. The singer not just mesmerised his fans with his soulful voice, but his enchanting smile captivated the hearts of millions of girls. The crush of every girl in the 90s, Shaan swooned us with some of the most melodious tracks like Musu Musu Hasi, Tune Mujhe Pehchaana Nahi, Woh Ladki Hai Kahan, Tanha Dil, Chand Sifarish, Jab Se Tere Naina and many more.
As Shaan made us lovestruck with his songs, the singer’s heart is ruled by his wife, Radhika. After a dreamy proposal, Shaan got married to the love of his life, Radhika in November 2000 in a traditional Bengali wedding. The lovely couple is doting parents to two adorable kids, Soham and Shubh.
On September 30, 2022, Shaan turned 50 and to mark the occasion, his wife, Radhika Mukerji penned a heartfelt wish for him. Taking to her IG handle, Radhika posted a shirtless picture of Shaan, who looked not even close to 50 as the singer flaunted his abs. Sharing her wonderment at her hubby’s good looks even at the age of 50, Radhika penned:
“How can 50 look so good! Happy Birthday to the one who will be forever young #nazaarnalage #slurp.”
Shaan and Radhika’s love story is nothing less than a Bollywood movie. Shaan was 24 when he accidentally met Radhika, who was just 18, at one of the events. They met at Razzberry Rhinoceros, a hotel in Juhu, where a song, Akbar Mera Naam was dedicated to Radhika, and she thought that it was Shaan who did this. Throughout the night, she presumed him to be Akbar and later got to know his real identity.
In an interview with a media portal in 2016, Shaan talked about his love story and had stated:
"Actually, at 24, I found this 18-year-old to be naive and childish. But there were lots of coincidences that kept happening - like, she would be walking into a restaurant, and I would be walking out of it, or we would bump into each other at a friend's party, unplanned. There was certain chemistry and mystery between us, which drew me to her."
Here's wishing a happy and healthy birthday to Shaan!
