Arijit Singh's singing career has only been soaring in a big way ever since his 'Tum Hi Ho' [AASHIQUI 2] was heard exactly a year ago. 12 months and over half-a-dozen chartbuster hits later, Arijit has another feather in his cap. He is now the voice of Farhan Akhtar, who is a multi-faceted talent himself, with singing as one of the many talents that he possesses.
Even though Farhan is a musician and singer himself, he has never ever been particular about another singer crooning for him.
Post - ROCK ON!!, he could well have made that decision but as per his close associates, he does understand that every film is different, be its stage, setting, requirement and, of course, the singing voice. He may recite a few lines now and then (as was the case in ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA) but time and again, other singers have come on board as his voice.
This was apparent in his last biggie BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG too and now SHAADI KE SIDE EFFECTS isn't any different.
For the film, Pritam came up with a club track 'Desi Romance' which is a mix of rhythm and melody. He wanted a particular voice styling for this number to be picturized on Farhan and Arijit, who has sung many other songs with Pritam even before AASHIQUI 2, was the chosen one.
The song is set in a club where Farhan and Vidya get all romantic with each other while taking on the floors. One thing leads to another and a steamy outing follows. The specially designed number has just been launched as a Valentine's gift to accentuate the feeling of love which is in the air.
