Arijit Singh’s rise up the Bollywood charts has been nothing short of meteoric.

He later shot to fame with chartbusters like Kabira from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani; Nashe si char gayi from Befikre; and Phir bhi tumko chahoonga from Half Girlfriend. Catch him perform live at a much-awaited concert at a BKC venue.
