Arijit Singh – Fame Gurukul
Born in 1987, From Murshidabad. After the Kolkata round of auditions for Fame Gurukul got postponed this young man trekked all the way to Delhi. What if the Kolkata auditions never took place? But Delhi was not to be conquered. Arijit blames it on his choice of song which was heavy on classical. He switched strategies in Kolkata and sang a ghazal and the Sukhvinder hit “Chainya Chainya” and the rest is history. Though Arijit is from a small town in Bengal he does not feel disadvantaged at all. He is full of confidence and rearing to go. He feels his “lagan and riyaz” show through. Pursuing music has never been that easy.
His father is a LIC agent and mother is a housewife. Though he comes from a simple background, he has never lacked family support when comes to following his heart. Arijit is a trained classical singer and has performed on stage but his dream is to become a popular singer. His desire to hit the popularity charts has brought him to Fame Gurukul.
