The singer who has achieved tons of popularity on behalf of his romantic songs is none other than Arijit Singh. Today he's considered a music pandit, but his journey of struggle is also long. He started to gain popularity from childhood only, thanks to many music reality shows, but it took it comparatively long to debut into the music sector independently.
He was born in the small town of Jiagunj, Murshidabad in West Bengal. His father was Punjabi whereas his mother was Bengali. He attended Raja Bijay Singh High School and then for college, he went to Sripat Singh College. He describes himself as a decent student, but one who was more interested in music than studies. Noticing his interests in music, his parents enrolled him to get trained professionally under the Hazari brothers at the age of three. He studied Indian classical music under Rajendra Prasad Hazari, tabla under Dhirendra Prasad Hazari, and Rabindra Sangeet, and pop music under Birendra Singh Hazari. He was so talented that he won a government scholarship at the tender age of nine!
He then participated in various music reality shows including Fame Gurukul, Indian Idol, etc. There, he created a few contacts which later, proved vital for him. He then started to work as a music programmer for different well-established music composers. There was one time when the well-known music composer Pritam found out the spark in his assistant & decided to offer a breakthrough to him. This comes to a timeline around India when he playback for the movie Aashiqui 2 in 2013. That was the turning moment for him as this whole album was tremendously famous in no time & thus, he also received different awards for the same.
Arijit Singh married Koel Roy on 20 January 2014 in Tarapith temple, West Bengal who is his childhood friend. Fans are confirmed about his marriage news when he uploads a wedding photo on a social network site. This was the second marriage for both of them. He also had to go through a divorce in his personal life.
Hence, what we see today is a star who performs in different concerts, sings various songs, charges a huge fee & lives a simple life. His attire or behavior is untouched by the fame & fan following he receives. We listen to his romantic songs, sad songs, but only a few know the preparations behind those, the hard work he's gone through to attain that level of quality. A lot of interviews are there on Xpert which tell his whole story right from his mouth. We wish him best for his future & hope to continue enjoying his soul-touching songs. Achha Chalta Hun, Duaon Mein Yaad Rakhna!
