Arijit Singh is a trained classical singer who has performed in many stage shows. His career as a playback singer started when he participated in a singing reality show called Fame Gurukul (2005), while still in college. Although he did not win the competition, his participation garnered respect and love from fans. He went on to win a subsequent reality show called 10 ke 10 le gaye dil with the help of audience votes. Shankar Ehsaan Loy gave Arijit the first break on one of their songs called “All For One” from High School Musical 2 (Vol 1) album.
Arijit Singh was also invited on the 29 December 2012, Episode 9 of the MTV Unplugged India Season 2. The youtube video of the airing drove close to 1 million views and seems to be hit in Mtv India channel. I guess that’s the reason he was invited again this year for creating 6 of his favorite songs. Please enjoy all the 6 songs below.
In 2013, he had sung in more than 12 movies in which his work in Aashiqui 2, Chennai Express and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani were well recognized.
