Shankar Mahadevan is part of the composer trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. But apart from the group, he also has a distinct identity as a singer of stage and classical music. And, Shankar is happy that his sons, singers Siddharth Mahadevan and Shivam Mahadevan, are managing to make their mark. “It is very good for a father to see his children fleeing, and not to live in the shadows.” It is enough to see my children making a mark,” said the Padma Shri recipient.
While Siddharth (29) is a singer composer who has songs alive ,Bhaag Milkha Bhaag2013) Nachde ne all ,Baar Baar Dekho2015 Nok Jhok ,Chhapaak2020) To his credit, Shivam has also done gameplay for several film and web projects, including Delhi Safari (2012) and Bandish the bandits, among others. She is also often seen on Instagram with her dad.
55-year-old Shankar’s best time is when he composes music with his sons. “When I go on stage and sing as a band with both my kids, it feels amazing. I cannot explain the experience enough. We already learn, we create, we remember, we discuss, we discuss. So it’s surprising that we’re a music team,” says the musician.
