Songs like Tujhe Kitna Chahne Lage Hum, Pachtaoge, Pal, Ve Maahi and many other hits have one voice behind its success and that is none other than Arijit Singh. He is today ruling the music industry. If a film is not good enough but has an Arijit song well, then very well know the results.
Arijit Singh knows well who he is and that’s how he keeps winning the game. Let’s get to the roots of this amazing singer to where he came from.
Arijit Singh was born in a Sikh family but was a Bengali by heart (mother is a Bengali). Arijit Singh’s musical training began at home. He got trained especially from his maternal side of the family. His grandmother used to sing, his uncle played a musical instrument and his mother used to play the tabla. So his growing up years was surrounded by music. No doubt, that’s where the actual talent comes from.
As a kid, Arijit Singh used to participate in many schools and college competitions. He also took training under the three Hazari brothers, one taught him Indian Classical Music, Rajendra Prasad Hazari; he learned the tabla from Dhirendra Prasad Hazari, and Birendra Prasad taught him Rabindra Sangeet (songs that are written and composed by Rabindranath Tagore). He was also awarded a scholarship by the government of India for pursuing music.
Arijit Singh was a contestant at Fame Gurukul, where he stood 6th. Later as he participated in 10 Ke 10 Le Gaye Dil, he won the show and with the prize money, he took the risk and started a composing studio of his own. He got his first break for the song Phir Mohabbat and today he is ruling the industry with his voice.
Arijit Singh’s song Tujhe Kitna Chahne Lage Hum was ranked first to be the most heard song in India.
