It was on Sunday night when Bollywood singer Shaan was performing at Guwahati's Sarusajai stadium. Everything was going well, when suddenly someone from the audience threw paper ball at him.

On this, the ginger turned furious and has stopped his performance midway. Shaan, then asked the security men to get the person concerned on stage.

"Get him on stage. Whoever you are, never throw things at an artist. Learn to respect a performer," the singer was heard saying over the microphone.

"I had high fever. I am on antibiotics. I am here performing all night for you. And if this is the kind of response and this is the kind of people here then I am not interested," he said.

The embarrassing attack on singer has triggered outrage on social media with many alleging that the singer was heckled for singing in Bengali. It has been rumoured that people were upset that that he was singing a Bengali song in Assam.
