His music career began when he participated in the reality show ‘Fame Gurukul’ in 2005. Although he only made it to 6th position, the filmmaker, Sanjay Leela Bhansali recognized his talent and brought Singh on to sing Yun Shabnami for an upcoming film. The song was never released. Similarly, he was signed for an album, again, the album was never released. But this did not stop Arijit, he would soon become one of the most celebrated artists in the Indian music industry.
