Singer-composer Arijit Singh is completing a decade in Bollywood today. The artiste, who began his musical journey with the song “Phir Mohabbat” from Murder 2 (2011), has given us innumerable numbers over the last decade. We know that Arijit began his career as a participant in the singing reality show Fame Gurukul (2005).
In an old video, we see how a teenaged Arijit is singing “Mitwa” from Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006), sitting on his terrace. Sporting long hair and strumming his guitar, this version of Arijit is not what we see today, the only connecting thread being his soulful voice.
Though the video is presumably at least 15 years old, Arijit’s singing is spot on. Though his singing might have only become better with time, he showed the spark in this video.
Arijit got a huge support from his mentor and music director Pritam with whom he collaborated in four films in the same year of his Bollywood debut. These included chartbuster tracks “Raabta”, “Yaariyan” and “Phir Le Aya Dil” from Agent Vinod, Cocktail and Barfi.
Some of his award winning songs are “Tum Hi Ho”, “Samjhawan”, “Channa Mereya”, “Bolna”, “Gerua”, “Mast Magan”, “Binte Dil”, “Hawayein”, “Ae Watan” and “Ghungroo”.
