How Angarag Mahanta became famous as “Papon”


We all know Papon as famous Indian singer and composer. He has achieved something significant for himself and for Assam. “Moh Moh Ke Dhage” from Dum Laga Ke Haisha is one of his most popular songs which have got him many awards.

Very few people would know that Papon is his nick name. His actual name is Angarag Mahanta. This talented singer once shared as how he became Papon from Angarag Mahanta. In his words:

Angaraag Mahanta is my school name. People in Assam announce me as Angaraag Mahanta. “Now on stage, Angaraag Mahanta”. Some of my school friends call me Angaraag, but everyone else calls me Papon. It’s like a pet name, and after I came to Delhi, it became Papo.

We wish all the very best to Papon. He still has a long way to go.
