Heartthrob of teens and current popularity chart topper, vocalist Arijit Singh won hearts of thousands who braved the humid heat and dust to have a glimpse of him and listen to his crooning on Sunday evening. Arijit’s very appearance on the stage led to loud applause and scores of whistles that stopped abruptly the moment he strummed his guitar to play some familiar tunes that had the gathering getting connected to his music instantaneously.


Arijit started with his one of the hot numbers ‘Aye Dil Hai Mushkil’ amidst screams and had the gathering singing along with him. He rendered songs like ‘Hawaie’, ‘Janam Janam’, ‘Meri Dua Ho Sada’, a Raga Bhimpalas based song ‘Yeh Bhi Tu’, ‘Hamdard Mera Hai’, ‘Bolna’, from the film ‘Kapoor & Sons’, ‘Vadiya’, ‘Tum Sath Ho’ and many more to match the mood of the occasion.


It was Arijit Singh’s maiden concert in Nagpur. Abhijit Realtors and Infraventures Pvt Ltd (ARIPL) had organised the musical extravaganza of the present-day superstar of Indian music, to mark the launch of its biggest ever venture ‘Jayanti Nagari VII’. Nagpurians were waiting for the event as on previous two occasions, Arijit Singh’s shows in Nagpur had got cancelled due to different reasons. But, ARIPL made it sure that Nagpurians did not miss his live concert this time.


It appeared as if ‘Arijit Singh Live’ was the only happening thing on Sunday evening. For, the only cement leading to the venue of the concert got clogged due to heavy traffic. Many of the invitees and scores of fans of Arijit Singh navigated through the heavy traffic to reach the venue and listen to the singing sensation.


The concert had its expected share of enthusiasm and excitement. The members of the audience were so excited to give chorus to Arijit Singh and get as clear a look of the popular singer as possible, that many of the people occupying even the VIP Frontage started standing up on their chairs one by one to take videos and photographs of the singing sensation. Of course, the senior citizens and those sitting in back rows had a reason to fret over this.


The huge stage had equally big ensemble of top class musicians, lady support vocalists and a changing backdrop, with occasional display of fire works. The blend of bright lights, melodious tunes, and silken voice of Arijit Singh mesmerised Nagpurians. The concert got its due and the gathering had one of the best of Arijit Singh’s music to the hilt. On a few occasions, the members of the audience joined the singer and the effect was a song of life reverberating through the venue. Music, love, emotions filled the air.


When it all came to an end, which nobody wanted to happen, the people had become fans and the fans had become die-hard fans of Arijit. For a change, they carried memories in their hearts, and emotions in their minds. For, he had won over the human senses with his superfine performance.
