Tum Hi Ho…Arijit Singh!

Just a few minutes ago, I was googling about Arijit Singh, after I had watched an episode of the ongoing show ‘Indian Idol Junior’, wherein he performed his smashing chartbuster song “Tum Hi Ho” as a duet with one of the junior contestants. Such a lovely performance it was! When the search results displayed, my eyes shot towards the video results, and I immediately clicked on the link that I’ve posted here. The video was that of  Arijit, performing a Himesh Reshamiyya number in a reality show called ‘Fame Gurukul’ (which probably most people mustn’t have heard of, as this show never garnered enough popularity like that of Indian Idol or Sa Re Ga Ma Pa). And yeah, back in those days in 2005, songs of Himesh were a cult favourite among the masses! Thankfully, that phase is long gone! 🙂

If you have already been swept by the magical voice of the Murshidabad-born 26 year old singer in his popular numbers ‘Phir Mohabbat in Murder 2’, ‘Raabta in Agent Vinod’, ‘Tum Hi Ho, Chahun Main Ya Naa and Milne Hai Mujhse Aayi’  in Aashiqui 2 and ‘Kabira(Reprise), Ilahi and Dilliwali Girlfriend’ in the recently-released movie ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, then, you will notice, after watching the video, how far this singer has come since his reality-show days. Right now, he is one of the most sought after voices in the music industry in Bollywood, Tollywood and even in Southern film industries. It is quite a remarkable and appreciable feat for a singer born through a reality show, because there is a persisting common belief among the good percentage of genuine music lovers in India that musical reality shows in the country can produce only singers with a limited shelf life, singers who get swayed by the instant fame and money, which come and go in a snap! I wish that Arijit Singh continues his good work and treats his fans and followers with many melodious numbers in the days to come! Tum Hi Ho Arijit Singh, Tum Hi Ho…
