Camera-shy singer Arijit Singh will be seen paying a tribute to the Goddess Of All melodious Things Lata Mangeshkar on Gajendra Singh’s Naam Reh Jayegaa on Sunday 5 June on Star Plus.
This is a very rare television appearance by Arijit but something that he needed to do.Airjit will be singing a medley of the most magnificent Mangeshkar melodies including Jo vada kiya woh nibhana padega(Taj Mahal), Dikhayee diye yun(Bazaar) and Tujhse naraaz nahin zindagi(Masoom).
Says Arijt, “These songs seem easy but when you sing you realise it’s not easy at all. Every song has different memories attached to it. I was introduced to Lataji’s songs at an early age by my mother and that is how the love and respect for Lataji was seeded in me.”
Adds the show’s producer Gajendra Singh, “When I approached Arijit, I was pleasantly surprised with his prompt consent to be part of this show. He did a lot of research on the songs that he would sing, in terms of mood and feel of the songs. He rehearsed from 2 PM to 2 AM, sat with each musician and did the song setup. The Shooting for Arijit’s episode went on through an entire night. He sang a 40 minute Hindi- Bengali medley that’s mesmerising”.
