MUMBAI: Arijit Singh is relishing the tremendous love he is receiving from his fans for his romantic tracks, but says the offers he receives are not in his hands, and he did not plan his career in any way. Asked about the ‘romantic singer’ tag that has been associated with him, Arijit said, “I haven’t planned my career in this way. I’m just happy with whatever songs are coming my way.”

“I don’t care about the fact that doing just one type of song is hampering my growth. I don’t calculate these aspects,” the singer said at a media interaction to promote his upcoming Symphony concert in Mumbai, his third after one each in Dubai and London.

Sharing his last two experiences, he said, “The first one was in Dubai where I was completely lost. The audience liked it but I wasn’t satisfied as I couldn’t hear myself. With more preparations, the London concert was better than Dubai and I think the Mumbai show will be better than London.”

Arijit launched himself on the big stage with romantic song Phir Mohabbat in Murder 2 and went on to sing several other romantic songs like Tum Hi Ho and Mast Magan. He is currently basking in the success of his emotional song Chunar from Any Body Can Dance 2 and the romantic title track of Hamari Adhuri Kahani
