We all like surprises, don’t we?

Yes, of course. And the person who got lucky was none other than music sensation Shaan. He was shooting along with Neeti and Shekhar when Pawandeep, winner of the first season of ‘The Voice India’ visited the sets to meet his mentor Shaan.

Shaan was taken aback and was surprised and his happiness knew no bounds. We asked Shaan about his reaction on Pawandeep’s visit ad he said, “I went on a nostalgia trip on how we first met during the blind auditions. He was the underdog in the last season and then went on to win the show. He won the competition only due to his pure hardwork and I hope this season we get to witness some heartfelt performances too.”

We wish a fruitful singing career ahead for Pawandeep!
