“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”
Born on 25 April 1987, in Jiaganj, Murshidabad, West Bengal to Bengali mother and a Punjabi father Arijit belonged to a musical background as his aunt, mother, and even uncle were musicians and a tabla player. Arijit started his classical music career from home and learned a lot from his uncle and aunt. His father was very concerned in making his son a national level musician, something that other family members could not become, so he consulted Rajendra Prasad Hazari to be Arijit’s guru.
Arijit auditioned for Fame Gurukul, a music reality show highlighting young talents in India. Unfortunately, he did not win but successfully made it to the finals. He sang his first Bollywood song “Phir Mohabbat” in 2011 for Mithoon’s movie “Murder 2”. He also sang a few other songs but could not come into anybody’s notice.
The real deal happened in the year 2013 when Aashiqui 2 album came out. This was it. This was what Arijit had been expecting his whole life. He sang 6 songs in the movie and they all turned out to be superhit blockbusters especially the song “Tum Hi Ho” stuck in people’s head forever. Tum Hi Ho rose to the top of music charts and refused to budge for months even long after the film released and got off screens. And this was the moment Arijit Singh became an overnight sensation.
Song offers came to Arijit before he could even blink. Irrespective of romantic, drama or comedy, every movie had at least one Arijit Singh songs.
