No sooner did the “Tum Hi Ho” voice hit our ears, than we started to look for the guy behind such a magical voice. The boy from West Bengal, Murshidabad didn’t ever want to be a celebrity after whom the media and fans would whizz around. He just loved music from his heart and soul.
It was not until his guru Rajendra Prasad Hazari who insisted him to take part in the 2005 singing reality show ‘Fame Gurukul’ than we got to know where he actually had a start from. It's still unbelievable how the sensational voice of the nation now then held the 6th rank in the show?
Well, that’s how luck smiled at him and why not? He possessed a talent which the nation was badly in need of. Undoubtedly other male singers had a time when they entertained us with their great voices but they weren’t really constant. Unlike others, Arijit has got this magic to make us drool over his startling voice time and again. We know that before ‘Tum Hi Ho’ it was ‘Phir Mohabbat’ where we got to hear his magic with the other two namely Mohammed Irfan and Saim Bhat which won him his first Filmfare nomination. The trio left us mesmerized with the track.
One of the leading journals interviewed him where he quoted “Bhatt Saab wanted a music revolution just like Aashiqui had brought about in the 90s,” and rightly did he chose Arijit Singh who casted a spell with his numbers in Aashiqui 2.
Very less of them know this fact that Shankar Mahadevan holds a big place in his heart and he is one major reason behind his success. Mahadevan has been one of the judges in Fame Gurukul where he developed the fondest relationship with him and later on even after winning the show. “I told him Arijit was the voice of the future, but he insisted that he wanted a ‘popular’ voice,” said Shankar Mahadevan to a journal when he insisted a producer on keeping Arijit’s version of a particular song. Rightly said so, Sir! The voice can never really fade out with its unusual versatility that too in different genres and languages.
The nation loves Arijit and we would always ask for more from such a talent which can melt our hearts in seconds. We would love to thank this voice that has been feeding our souls no matter if we’re happy or sad or in love. His song always speaks our heart out and we can constantly be high on his songs without consuming any sort of drugs.
