He has a natural voice, he is said to have refreshing and young vocals, and he is a multi-talented singer, who has sung songs from various genres. So join BollyCurry as we take on a mini journey into the life and career of our Illuminated Artiste, Arijit Singh.

Born in West Bengal, Singh comes from a family of musicians. He initiated his music training from his house as his grandmother was a singer while aunt was trained in Indian Classical music. He also learnt music from his mother who used to sing as well as play tabla. His inclination towards music led him to learning it professionally. He learnt Indian classical music from Rajendra Prasad Hazari and trained in tabla from Dhirendra Prasad Hazari while Birendra Prasad Hazari taught him Rabindra Sangeet and pop music.

Singh started his career by participating in reality show Fame Gurukul (2005). Though he lost in the finals, he entered another show 10 Ke 10 Le Gaye Dil. He won the show and built his own recording setup and began his journey with music programming. He went on to become assistant music programmer to Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Vishal-Shekhar and Mithoon. Then there was no looking back.

He made his Bollywood singing debut with "Phir Mohabbat" from Murder 2 (2011) which created a hype among the audiences. Later he went on to sing various songs like "Raabta" from Agent Vinod (2012), "Yaariyan" from Cocktail (2012), "Duaa" from Shanghai (2012) which earned him Mirchi Music Award for Upcoming Male Playback Singer award. He was also nominated in the same category for "Phir Le Aya Dil" from Barfi! (2012). He rose to widespread prominence with "Tum Hi Ho" from Aashiqui 2 (2013) which fetched him several awards and nominations. Since then, he has given us various hits which has managed to hit a perfect chord with the audience becoming the favorite amongst the youth.

Nevertheless, his passion for music got him to where he is today. BollyCurry now presents to you some of his finest songs that has managed to capture our heart.
