Hans Raj Hans was born with singing talent. Though he was influenced by a street singer named Sitara Singh, who used to come near his house every day and sing Punjabi devotional songs. He would listen to him everyday. Hans was a devotee of Ustad Puran Shahkoti Sahib, from whom he had learned to sing since his teenager years. Ustad Puran Shahkoti Sahib is a sufi singer and it was because of him Hans learned to sing in Sufiana style.
