Singer Shaan has been associated with Sa Re Ga Ma Pa for a long time. He started off as a host in 2003 and was also the host of the first season of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs in 2006. Shaan was back on the show as a judge in 2014 and will be again seen judging the little ones this year.

Shaan is quite excited to be a part of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs. In an exclusive chat with India Today Online, Shaan said that it was like coming to his roots. He said, “I am back on Zee and it’s like coming back to my roots and it’s always special here. It’s wonderful to be associated with Sa Re Ga Ma Pa as it is more about the talent. The fact that they always have the best talent, makes it different from other music reality shows.

Talent scouting is something that Zee team specialises in. As always this time again better than expected, (we have) fantastic talent on Li’l Champs.” Shaan started his television career in 1998 with Mast Mast Show, which was aired on EL TV – a sister concern of Zee TV.
