Thanks to his long string of hit songs, Arijit Singh is one of the most sought-after male playback singers today. The 29-year-old singer, who is currently making waves for infusing the title song of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil with just the right measure of pathos, reveals that his diet stresses on simple and nutritious food, and he prefers home-made Indian food.
