Shankar loves to see audiences enjoy his music

Music composer Shankar Mahadevan is set for a four-city tour with partners Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendonsa.

Shankar loves to see audiences enjoy his music

Shankar says the best reward for musicians is to watch audiences grooving and clapping to their tunes.

"It's nice to be a music director, a musician and a performer. It becomes multi-tasking things. It's amazing to see people's love. It's a firsthand experience," the 45-year-old said while announcing his tour.

"We know whenever our song becomes a hit and people like it. But when you actually see them (audiences) dancing and singing and clapping in front of you, that feeling cannot be replaced by anything else."

The tour stars on March 18 in Bangalore. They will travel to Kolkata on March 20, Mumbai on March 25, and Delhi on April 1.

Shankar says it would not be possible to perform all of their hit songs, but they would certainly try to entertain the audience in the limited time frame.

"We are never able to perform the repertoire of our songs in a show, but we try to entertain people as much as we can. We will perform the maximum in the given time so that crowd would have something to remember the rest of their lives," said Shankar.

The trio came together in 1985 with a non-film music album. In 1997, they debuted in the film industry with 'Dus'.

Soon after, they composed music for Farhan Akhtar's directorial debut 'Dil Chahta Hai', which proved to be the turning point in their career.

The 2003 film 'Kal Ho Naa Ho' fetched them the National Award for best composers.
