8 ‘Tum hi ho’ from Aashiqui 2 didn’t only win hearts.

9 Arijit’s dream is to work under Salman khan’s production house.
Salman Khan was once hosting an award show. Arijit was nominated as the best singer for ‘Aashiqui 2’. Arijit Singh got off to the award show directly from work and hence he was casually dressed and tired. In the award show when his name was announced, he was found sleeping. Someone woke him up and he rushed to the stage wearing casuals and a pair of slippers. Salman asked Arijit whether he was sleeping. In reply, he said that the show made him feel sleepy. Well, the actor felt that Arijit’s reply was highly offensive. Since then Arijit has made several attempts to strengthen his relation with Salman. But nevertheless, Salman has banned him from his movies.
