Versatile Bollywood singer Kumar Sanu, on the sets of the singing reality show Dil Hain Hindustani, revealed that he adopted his daughter Shannon way back in 2001 but did not want to disclose it to anybody.
Sanu revealed the reason for the same in a statement, which read: “I never wanted to disclose this as I was scared of what the society would think. I wasn’t sure how they were going to see this. But since now this is out, I’m really proud of Shannon. It doesn’t matter if she is my real daughter or not.”
Shannon, who’s now a UK-based singer, made her debut with the pop single ‘A Long Time Ago,’ which is written and produced by Canadian singer Justin Beiber’s frequent collaborator Jason ‘Poo Bea’ Boyd.
Speaking more about Shannon, Sanu said added, “She is very hard working and has already achieved so much in her life. A lot of people in Hollywood know me because of her and that is a matter of pride for our family”.
