Bollywood’s latest singing sensation Arijit Singh, who won millions of hearts with his soulful rendition of ‘Tum Hi Ho’ in AASHIQUI 2 last year, has been a victim of comparisons with many established artistes off late, the most recent being with singer Atif Aslam.

Both Arijit and Atif, who enjoy their own set of fan following, have a similar voice quality and are best known for crooning some of the hit romantic songs in the movies. But the similarity in their voice has eventually given rise to a lot of comparisons, not only amongst their fans but even in the industry.
However, the singer seems to be unaffected with it and rather takes it in a positive stride. Arijit took the opportunity to clarify about these comparison rumours on a social networking site.
“My dear brothers and sisters, I request you all to stop fighting over me and atif aslam. I respect that man as I do every individual musician and artist. And these talks over boundaries don’t suit us anymore. We are young people of India and Pakistan. Let’s not find an excuse to fight with each other. We are the same people divided by some so called politicians all over the world. Let’s become strong. I request. Keep calm and enjoy the music. Music wins over all. Let there be light,” posted Singh.
Well, now that’s indeed sweet!
