Known for his love songs in Bollywood such as Tum Hi Ho from Aashiqui 2 and  Muskurane from City Lights, Arijit Singh talks about his songs and experiences in Bollywood.

You are famous for love songs. What is the secret of the emotion in your voice?

(Laughs) There is no secret as such. I don’t know... I don’t plan my songs; it is beyond our calculation. I am very happy about my singing.

Tell us about Guddu Rangeela’s song Suiyaan

Yes, I love that song. I am a fan of Amit Trivedi’s work.  The way he brings emotions to the composition is amazing. I am excited; it is one of the songs that is close to my heart.

Director Subhash Kapoor said no one could have sung it better than you

Well, he is generous and nice. Subhashji was present during the recording and I am happy he liked my work. It sounds good but I don’t agree with him, there is always room for improvisation. It’s difficult to sing these kinds of songs. Amit sang the entire song while composing it. It was amazing and when I sang it, I wished I could have sung it better than Amit. He lends a unique emotion and I try to sing it like him, too.

How do you feel about winning a Filmfare award so early in life? Do you think it was luck?

Yes, I think it was luck. A lot of people haven’t received it yet. Jatin-Lalit have not got the award even after giving excellent music. There are a lot of other singers too who deserved it. I think God has been generous.

What do you think about the competition?

I don’t compete with anyone. They are all my friends. I admire them and get inspired from them. I love the work of Shalmali, Shefali and Irfan. My current favourite is Chinmayi.
