After regaling his fans for 15 years, Arijit Singh has now reinvented himself as a music composer. In Netflix’s forthcoming feature film Pagglait, which features a stellar line-up of female actors including Sanya Malhotra who plays the title role, Arijit has composed all the songs.
Speaking of the new beginning, Arijit says, “I make my debut as a music composer with a project very close to my heart. I am honoured to serve music to the world. The endearing story of the film’s protagonist Sandhya of self-belief and triumph is much like my musical journey and I feel honoured to be associated with a special film like Pagglait.’’
Pagglait is a comedy-drama which has been written and directed by Umesh Bist. It's a Balaji Motion Pictures and Sikhya Entertainment presentation which also stars Shruti Sharma, Ashutosh Rana and Raghubir Yadav in lead roles.
Coming to Arijit's new journey as a composer, well, he joins the great Mukesh, Hemant Kumar and Kishore Kumar as singers turned music composers in Hindi cinema.
