If you go to ask any 6-year-old kid about this man, even he would know this singing sensation. Arijit Singh is not only a singer but also the voice of every emotion in the country for past 8 years. We have seen different singers in the country making their place in people’s hearts but this singer, right from his first song ‘Phir Mohabbat’ in 2009, has made a unique mark through his soulful voice. He was one of top six contestants in a reality-singing show, Fame Gurukul, in 2005 and became an assistant to music director Pritam in his consequent years.
He has the magical power to heal and soothe our souls and his husky voice is an absolute solution to mend a broken heart. He has a good command over his pitch and can switch from classical music to peppy numbers to romantic songs effortlessly. Today on his birthday, we would like to remember some of his greatest hits and make you sink in the nostalgia of old lost love.
Raabta from Agent Vinod: This was Arijit’s second break in the industry and he rendered 4 versions of the same song where the music was given by Pritam. The movie starred Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan in the lead roles and audiences loved his voice in the song.
Tum Hi Ho from Aashiqui 2: This was probably and still is the best song sung by Arijit Singh in his career and the music was lent by none other than Mithoon. The movie was released in 2013 and starred Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles.
Phir Le Aya Dil from Barfi: This chartbuster song was produced by Pritam, and Arijit’s classical touch to it got him nominated in the category of Upcoming Male Playback Singer Award at the Mirchi Music Awards. The movie starred Ranbir Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz and Priyanka Chopra in the lead.
Channa Mereya from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil: This is by far one of the greatest tracks ever sung by him and the movie had Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma as the lead cast. Another song from the same movie, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, was also loved by the people like anything and bagged him a Filmfare award for the Best Singer of the Year.
Phir Bhi Tumko Chahunga from Half Girlfriend: This song by him is from an upcoming Bollywood movie based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name. The star cast of the movie includes Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor playing the roles of lovers and the song is made by Mithoon. We wish Arijit Singh a very Happy Birthday and hope that he will continue gifting us such melodious songs and in future.
