Shaan says his axed song ‘Durr Kahi Durr’ from Shah Rukh Khan starrer Dunki would have meant the sun and the moon: “I was really counting on that”

Veteran playback singer Shaan recently opened up about a missed opportunity in director Rajkumar Hirani’s film Dunki, starring Shah Rukh Khan. In an interview with Galatta India, Shaan expressed his disappointment saying, “At this point in my career that song would have meant the sun and the moon for me.”

He further added, “To get to sing again for Shah Rukh Khan after Om Shanti Om, it would have been brilliant. The song was a beautiful duet with Shreya Ghoshal, it had great potential. It worked not just as a film song but had that ‘Hawayein Hawayein’  wala feeling. I was really counting on that but that’s life, it is okay.”

For the unversed, Shaan had recorded a duet titled ‘Durr Kahi Durr’  with singer Shreya Ghoshal for the film. However, during the editing process, director Hirani decided to remove the song. Shaan acknowledged the director’s call, stating, “He was very transparent about it with me.. and I really appreciate that.. and I fully understand that the film is top priority,” on his X (formerly known as Twitter).

Despite the setback with Dunki, Shaan received a new opportunity from none other than A.R. Rahman. He lent his voice to a challenging song in Mani Ratnam’s historical epic Ponniyin Selvan

Shaan described the song as a “shouty rap song” portraying a fight scene. He initially questioned his suitability for the role, but Rahman encouraged him to take it on. Shaan considers this a significant challenge in his career.
