RIP Lataji: Arijit Singh To Pay Heartfelt Tribute To The ‘Melody Goddess’ Following Her Sad Demise!
Camera-shy singer Arijit Singh will be seen paying a tribute to the Goddess Of All melodious Things Lata Mangeshkar on  Gajendra Singh’s  Naam Reh Jayegaa on Sunday 5 June on Star Plus.

This is a very rare television appearance by Arijit but something that he needed to do. Arijit will be singing a melody of the most magnificent  Mangeshkar melodies including  ‘Jo vada kiya woh nibhana padega’ (Taj Mahal), ‘Dikhayee diye yun’ (Bazaar) and ‘Tujhse naraaz nahin zindagi’ (Masoom).

Says  Arijit, “These songs seem easy but when you sing you realise it's not easy at all. Every song has different memories attached to it. I was introduced to Lataji's songs at an early age by my mother and that is how the love and respect for Lataji were seeded in me.”

Adds the show’s producer Gajendra Singh, “When I approached Arijit, I was pleasantly surprised with his prompt consent to be part of this show. He did a lot of research on the songs that he would sing, in terms of the mood and feel of the songs. He rehearsed from 2 PM to 2 AM, sat with each musician and did the song setup.  The Shooting for Arijit’s episode went on for an entire night. He sang a 40 minute Hindi- Bengali medley that’s mesmerising”.
