Indian singer Shaan is all set to release a revamped version of his 2000s hit Tanha Dil, which became a massive success for the country’s independent pop scene.
Shaan said he was toying with the idea of releasing a new version of the track for a while and feels it is the perfect time to launch it to help shine a spotlight on the discussions surrounding mental health.
On how the song can help those suffering from mental health issues, he said, “Coincidentally, it’s happening 20 years after the first track. We have tried to deal with a delicate topic sensitively and I hope people, apart from enjoying the song, imbibe the message as well. Mental health is a long and hard condition to deal with but there always is a light at the end of the tunnel.”
The 49-year-old singer added that he wishes the song will be successful in bringing a smile to his listeners. He elaborated further, “Don’t let them struggle in silence, together let’s make them #SayYesToLife.”
The new rendition, slated to be released on October 27, is backed by Lupin, the pharma brand.
