The man with the golden voice, Arijit Singh, will be seen on the musical show Naam Reh Jaayega, which is a tribute to the late Lata Mangeshkar.
The singer will be performing some of Mangeshkar’s Bengali and Hindi songs and the show’s host Sonu Nigam will introduce him as the late doyenne’s ‘Eklavya’. The ‘Tum Hi Ho’ singer considers Mangeshkar his guru and had honed his skills by observing her from a distance.
Singh will perform songs such as ‘Jo Wada Kiya Woh’ and ‘Tujhse Naraz Nahin Zindagi’ and more.
He said, “These songs seem easy but when you sing them you realize they are not easy at all. I don't have any personal memory of Latadidi as I haven't met her personally but my mother used to love her music. So all I know about Lataji is through my mother and that's how I started loving her.
“If I had met Lataji, I would have only spoken to her about my mother. Every song has different memories, maybe I would have learned something from her but I have no idea what would have said if I met her. I think I would be speechless.”
The singers featured on the show also include Shankar Mahadevan, Nitin Mukesh, Neeti Mohan, Alka Yagnik, Sadhana Sargam, Udit Narayan, Shaan, Kumar Sanu, Amit Kumar, Jatin Pandit, Javed Ali, Aishwarya Majumdar, Sneha Pant, Pyarelal Ji, Palak Muchhal and Anwesha.
The eight-episode show is aired every Sunday on Star Plus at 7 pm.
