Arijit Singh’s birthday: Happy birthday, Arijit Singh! The singer is the king of romantic ballads and here are 5 songs to prove it

Arijit Singh’s voice can make millions swoon, and the emotional intensity his music evokes, can hardly be compared to that of any other contemporary singer. The artist, who has won a National Award and six Filmfare Awards, is 35 today. To celebrate the occasion, here are five unforgettable songs from “Bollywood’s Reading King” that can elevate any ordinary romantic number to epic status.

‘Magan Mast’

Featured on Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor, this song — part of the movie “2 States” — embodies the devotion that often accompanies deep love. With a Sufi-esque chorus, the song is upbeat yet still moving, and acts as an important catalyst to move the film forward.



‘Kalank’

The title track of “Kalank” is a passionate number that touches your heart. This song, filled with high notes and beautiful lyrics, is about forbidden love and its pains. Singh invokes so much agony in his voice as he sings this song that it almost makes you sad when you hear it.




‘Shayad’


This beautiful song is again a passionate declaration of love, but Singh’s mastery is that he manages to make all his songs sound very distinctive and different. As Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aryan disastrously attempt to convince audiences of their love and attraction for each other in the repackaged “Love Aaj Kal,” the one thing that doesn’t hit a false note is this Arijit Singh love number.




‘Saawli Si Raat Ho’


This magical number from ‘Barfi’ automatically fits into the enchanting world created by Anurag Basu to tell the love story between a deaf-mute man (played by Ranbir Kapoor) and an autistic girl (played by Priyanka Chopra). Sung more like a whisper than a song, though romantic, this sweet lyrical number has the essence of a lullaby.




‘Ilahi’


This song of ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ is the best self-love song Bollywood has ever given to its fans. It celebrates the flight of fantasy and curiosity, the exploration of oneself as well as the exploration of the outside world and especially of the
joy of living. It’s energetic and sung in the high notes, but still manages to be touching.




So here’s your playlist for today!
