Success stories never go out of fashion and hence we bring you a special biography on Arijit Singh life story today!
Neither this man nor his story is anything to go by the definition of ordinary. He is the disciple of hope to all the talents that thrive unrecognized in the nation.
He is the king of playback in Bollywood, he is Arijit Singh and we bring you the story of the rise of his kingdom from a mere brick!
All of us know about the heights he has scaled and the pinnacle he stands at. We would rather tell you where he came from and about the first step in his ladder of fame. India is not just a melting bowl of cultures and diversities but also a cluster of vivacious talents and these talents often dwell in small towns. Similarly, his story too emerges from a small town of Murshidabad, West Bengal. Born to a Punjabi father and a Bengali mother he is a sweet fusion of the two cultures in himself.
First Chapter: The striving beginning
Unfortunately, in India, the only platform that exists for talents has struggled. His escalation is no different and how he held his nerves in each of those moments that subjected him to struggle breathes inspiration.
He started with the reality show, ‘Fame Gurukul’ in 2005 after his Guru Rajendra Prasad Hazari pushed him to participate. He knocked the doors of the musical world as a harbinger if classical music which many felt was gradually vanishing.

He was eliminated from the show as he finished at the Sixth position however, the veteran film maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali did recognize the talent he offered and signed him for a song in his then upcoming flick Saawariya but this wasn’t his time yet for this song was later discarded.
What could have been more fortunate? Well, wait! There’s more misfortune to come.
The owner of Tips Music too apparently recognised the spark and zest in him and signed for an album. Contradictory to all his aspirations and happiness the album never found itself released.
This must have been disheartening to the core and the most of us would just want to give up on this apex of disappointment but he did not and this is where we confer him the title of a ‘true champion.’
At just 19 he came back to Mumbai to settle and start a new chapter of his struggle.
What were you doing in life when you were 19? Was struggle even on cards?
Chapter Two: The rise
So what if the struggle was long and intense, a true character can only be judged in the toughest times and wins full marks here for his tenacity towards his passion and dreams. He started with composing music at his own rented studio and gradually crafted his journey. He found subsistence in assisting music directors till he had his moment and he patiently yet zestfully worked hard to achieve it between 2006 and 2010.

It doesn’t matter which hero or superstar will feature in the next B town flick but his presence behind the scenes is more of a mandatory thing these days. If music was to be a brand in the Indian film industry then he is surely the face that represents the brand.

We congratulate him on this emphatic success that has come from a humble background and perennial struggle. We hope that this story would push much more Arijit’s to stand for their dreams.
