Arijit Singh is one of the best singers in India. He is literally ruling the music industry with his soulful voice. Bollywood movies are now incomplete without a song by Arijit. The fame and recognization that this talented singer has gained have come with a price. He had his fair share of struggles and hardships. Arijit Singh was seen on the reality show ‘Fame Gurukul’ in 2005 as an 18-year-old. He ended up 6th in the show.
Arijit got a chance to sing for the movie Saawariya, however, the song got shelved due to change in the script. Later he was signed by Tips Music for an album, but ultimately that song also didn’t release. It seemed like every big opportunity was turning into a dead-end for Singh. Clearly, the start of his career was quite rocky. Despite this spate of bad luck, Singh was focussed on his goal and didn’t give up. He moved full-time to Mumbai to make most of the opportunities that came his way, where he lived in a small room and worked as a freelance musician. He decided to try his luck on television again, and took part in the reality show 10 Ke 10 Le Gaye Dil, and won. He used the Rs 10 lakh prize money to set up his own recording studio, and that’s when his musical career really took wings! He also struggled in his personal life with an unsuccessful first marriage and a messy divorce. Eventually, things took a turn for better professionally and personally.
Although he struggled a lot initially, his talent and hard work have made him a person he is!
