Arijit Singh – The Making Of A Talented Singer

The Beginnings - Arijit Singh Marriage

Arijit Singh was born on 25th April 1987 to a Punjabi father and Bengali mother at Jiaganj in Murshidabad district of West Bengal. Arijit always had a natural inclination towards music since his maternal grandmother, maternal aunt and even mother were trained Indian classical singers. For this reason, the young Arijit had most of his early music training at home, and after growing up received professional training in music.

Arijit Singh began his career in the world of professional singing with an entry in the reality TV show Fame Gurukul in 2005, in which he was a runner-up, although he impressed in the finals. He then entered another reality show called 10 Ke 10 Le Gaye Dil which he won, prompting him to have a full-time career as a music programmer and playback singer. He later went on to become an assistant music programmer to Pritam Chakraborty and Vishal-Shekhar among others. Ever since his big break with the huge hit that was Tum Hi Ho from Aashiqui 2 in 2013, Arijit Singh has never looked back, and has risen only further and further up the ladder of superstardom. It is almost as if every movie these days features a hit song from the renowned playback singer.


The Less Known Arijit Singh First Marriage

It was during the time when Arijit Singh worked as a music programmer that he tied the knot with a woman, who was one of the contestants in the reality shows he had participated earlier. Not much is known about this specific Arijit Singh marriage, and the lady but the pertinent fact about it is that it did not last very long, with plenty of sources reporting – although this is unconfirmed – that Arijit Singh went through an unpleasant divorce. It was basically a marriage done in haste, at the impulse of the moment, does leading to the cracks in the relationship quite early. Eventually, the couple split for good, and moved on to their separate ways.

Arijit Singh has always been mum on the story of his first marriage ever since the media got a whiff of his divorce and wanted all the juicy details to share with the world. But there was never an explicit acknowledgement from him about that episode, which slowly led the news of his first marriage into oblivion.

Second Innings: Arjith Singh Wedding With Koel Roy

Arijit And Koel - Arijit Singh Marriage

After firmly establishing himself as one of the premier singers in India, and being in demand 24×7, rolling out one mega hit after the other, Arijit Singh decided that it was time to finally settle down with the true love of his life and start a family. However, in true Arijit Singh fashion, there was no grand announcement, not even an acknowledgement or a hint that he gave his fans or the industry, let alone the rest of the world. He truly does’t believe in the whole celebrity drama and hence the silence.

Thus, when he did decide to tie the knot for a second time, the media had no idea about the second Arijit Singh marriage, let alone any details of where it was to happen, or indeed when and most of all to who the superstar singer had decided to get hitched. It took the world by surprise when they came to know that Arijit Singh had indeed gotten married for a second time and the talk of the town was the details of the nuptials, which of course were scarce, with even titbits hard to come by.

Arijit Singh tied the knot for the second time on 21 January 2014 at the Trapith Temple in West Bengal to his childhood sweetheart Koel Roy. The wedding was a traditional Bengali affair with only close family members and others who are close to the singer invited. Even from the music industry, there were only those few who Arijit actually deemed as friends who were among the privileged few to attend the wedding, with Pritam, who had helped Arijit Singh firmly establish himself in the music scene present as his best man of sorts. The emphasis on the traditional style of ceremony was reminiscent of the wedding of Dhanush And Aishwarya.

Arijit And Wife - Arijit Singh Marriage

While the details of the Arijit Singh first marriage are almost non-existent, including the name of his first wife, never mind who she is, where she was from and all of the others details, we can confirm that the name of Arijit Singh’s childhood sweetheart and now loving wife is Koel Singh, and it is reported that Koel Singh also was married previously and has gone through a divorce and has a child, a four year old baby girl from the first marriage, with insiders also saying that the little girl though not Arijit’s daughter is very fond of the superstar singer.

The couple has been contacted several times, or rather, attempts have been made to contact the couple many times, but each attempt has been met with complete silence on the part of the couple, with either of them offering no comments to the media about the details of their marriage, future plans or any such information. Again, it should come as no surprise to long-time Arijit Singh fans that the singer, given his private persona, wishes to keep the details of his private life firmly to himself. Hence, many of the much coveted details of the Koel Roy – Arijit Singh wedding are known only to the couple and close family and friends.

The beard and hair

As a fairly shy and humble boy from Bengal who made himself a superstar and earned himself a place on the Forbes’ list for the vast amounts of money he has stockpiled in his career so far, Arijit Singh still remains a simple boy at heart, a quality that is reflected in his wife Koel as well. It is quite refreshing and commendable to see these qualities in a time when vanity and opulence rule the world of movies.

The Arijit Singh Marriage: 2015 A Mixed Year

The singer was reportedly threatened by Mumbai gangster Ravi Pujari who demanded that the singer either play two shows for him or pay him five crore last year. The singer was also reportedly involved in a scuffle with a media person who tried to get one too many details about the singer’s first marriage. You can be sure that the road ahead for Arijit is going to be filled with many more famous and infamous moments, with maybe the latter mellowing down as he begins to fill out his relatively new role as husband and father.

Sharing New Beginnings – Happy 2016

The singer took to instagram with his lovely wife, Koel Roy Singh by his side and wished his fans a very happy new year. (Awww don’t they just look adorable).

The journey of this singer from the televsion screen to movie screen has been nothing short of remarkable. He came to fame through the reality show Fame Gurukul in 2005. Just 18-year old back then, he was the baby of the show and garnered rave reviews from both judges and fans owning to his soulful voice. Here is a clip of his performance of Aashiq Banaya (Remix) in Fame Gurukul (2005) which still remains our favorite !

While he lost in the finals of Fame Gurukul, he succeeded in wining another reality show called 10 Ke 10 Le Gaye Dil which opened the door of Bollywood’s thriving music industry for him. With his hit song  ‘Tum Hi Ho’ from Aashiqui 2 in 2013 and ‘Samjhawan’ (Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania), ‘Muskurane’ (CityLights), ‘Mast Magan’ (2 States) among others, he cemented his position in the industry as the top playback singer. He has earned 23 awards from 70 nominations so far, with the most number of awards ( nine!) and nominations for the song “Tum Hi Ho”. This song still gives us goosebumps when we listen to it.

Here is what our singing champ has to say about his love and life.
