Arijit Singh was thronged by fans are he made his way to the polling booth.

Clad in a casual tee, Arijit Singh, along with his Koel Roy, voted at a polling booth in his hometown, Jiaganj, in West Bengal.

Despite his fame, popular playback singer Arijit Singh leads a simple life. Recently, along with his wife Koel Roy, he took a break from the limelight to vote at a polling booth in his hometown, Jiaganj, in the Murshidabad district of West Bengal. Dressed casually, they rode a scooter to the GSFP School for voting, with Koel riding pillion in traditional attire. As they walked to the polling booth, local fans eagerly followed, documenting every moment. After voting, Arijit proudly showed his inked finger to the crowd.

Arijit’s journey began in his hometown of Jiaganj, where he attended Sripat Singh College. Discovered on the reality show Fame Gurukul in 2005, the now 37-year-old singer made his Hindi film debut in 2011 with the song Phir Mohabbat for Murder 2. In the same year, he sang hit songs like Raabta from Agent Vinod, Uska Hi Banana from 1920: Evil Returns and Duaa from Shanghai.

Meanwhile, a recent video of Arijit Singh performing on stage has caught the eye of many fans on social media. In the video, the singer, known for Vida Karo, was seen trimming his nails with a nail cutter while singing, which some found unprofessional. Shared by fan pages on quite a few social media platforms, the video shows Arijit wearing a grey shirt with an orange cloth tied around his head as he performs at a concert in Dubai.

Reacting to this video, a user commented, “He should have thought about it before going on stage. So unprepared to play the guitar.” Another wrote, “I play guitar too…come on he’s apparently flown to another country for what looks like a packed place to play live, he shouldve checked his nails .. this is silly !!” A few users defended the singer. “He did that so that he could tap through his guitars a lil better I think,” read a comment. Another person wrote, “It must be bothering him playing the guitar.”

Currently, he’s enjoying the success of his song Vida Karo from Amar Singh Chamkila, featuring Diljit Dosanjh in the lead role.
