New Delhi, Oct 30: Popular Bollywood singer Shaan was pelted with paper balls and stones during a concert in Guwahati’s Sarusajai stadium on Monday after he sang a Bengali song.

A video posted on social media showed some unruly audience shouting, “This is Assam and not Bengal,” and throwing stones at the singer. The footage also shows Shaan saying, “Don’t make this political. Please respect the performer.”

Shaan later took to his Twitter to say that his outburst was not directed at any individual but against regionalism.

He also emphasised that he loved the Assam tour and made new friends. He wrote, “Just for the records …loved my Assam Tour!! Saw the most fascinating sights…made new friends..had huge turnouts at every concert. Over one unfortunate incident, it would be very wrong to Tarnish this Beautifull State!!! Whatever happened was in the heat of the moment.”
