Arijit is a singer cum music composer in the Indian film industry. Singing is Arijit’s inborn talent. Arijit was born into a Pakistani immigrant family of a Bengali Hindu mother and a Punjabi Sikh father who migrated from Pakistan’s Lahore to West Bengal.
If we speak about his skills in singing and music; we can say that they are definitely a pass on from his family, because his maternal aunt was trained in Indian classical music and was accompanied by his maternal grandmother’s singing. On the same maternal side, his uncle used to play tabla while his mother sang and played tabla. And with this influence in the family, Arijit started his practice singing at a very young age.
Arijit completed his schooling at Raja Bijay Singh High Singh following which he joined the Sripat Singh College. Arijit as a student was good at studies, and in his words, you can say he was “a decent student but cared more about music”.
His Indian Classical Music guru was the great Rajendra Prasad Hazari and Dhirendra Prasad Hazari was his tabla teacher. This today’s reputed singer was just three when he started training at the Hazari Brothers. And when he was nice, he was rewarded with a scholarship from the government for vocal training in Indian classical music.
As a student and a singer, he always idolized Bade Gulam Ali Khan, Ustad Rashid Khan, and others. At the age of 18, his guru Rajendra Prasad Hazari encouraged Arijit to leave the town and head to participate in the reality show Fame Gurukul in 2005. And that was where his musical journey started and got him into the world of music and songs.
In the early years of his career, Singh produced, and composed music for music directors. In 2010 he started singing and emerged as a singer; his first song was ‘Neeve Na Neeve Na’ from the Telugu film Kedi; his Hindi debut song was ‘Phir Mohabbat’ from Murder 2.
After that Arijit’s songs were heard in many other movies but it was this one movie that brought him into the limelight; Aashiqui 2. In this film, Arijit was the lead and key vocalist for the song ‘Tum Hi Ho’. This one song changed his whole career and brought him multiple awards and award nominations.
And now his songs are like lullabies that put the heart to sleep making it forget the pain.
