Here's why 29-year old singer Arijit Singh thinks that it's time for him to retire?
Bollywood singer Arijit Singh was first seen in the 2005 TV reality show Fame Gurukul, when he was just around 18-years-old. Although he did not go on to win the show, he did manage to raise quite a few eyebrows with his singing talent and unique voice.

Today, in 2016, more than a decade later, Arijit Singh is the most sought after playback singers in Bollywood. He is now the voice of stars like Ranbir Kapoor. His live concert tickets are hot property with the audience queuing up to get their hands on them. But all this did not come easily for Arijit. It took him six years of hard struggle to carve a niche for himself in Bollywood playback singing.

Things started to change for Arijit after he was given a break by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Pritam with the song `Phir Mohabbat Karne Chala Hai Tu' for the film Murder 2. The song became an instant hit and rest as they say, is history. Arijit Singh became a household name and the first choice of film producers in Bollywood.

Since then, Arijit has never looked back, delivering hits after hits. His most recent popular songs being from Karan Johar's film `Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'.

But, they say that nothing is permanent in this world, after rise comes fall. Just like success, failure is also an integral part of life.

While talking to the media, Arijit said, "I don't think I have a long way to go. This might be my last year. Normally, fresh voices replace (current favourites) every five to seven years in Bollywood."

However, he thinks that maybe a singer like him could change this prevalent trend but on only one condition. He further says, "I might be able to change that. If I work really hard on specific genres. Maybe that's how I will survive."

On being asked why he shies away from the limelight, he replied, "I enjoy a quiet life, without much interruption. Over the past three years, I have seen my fan base grow, and I think it's essential for them to know that I've always been someone who refrains from interactions because I enjoy a silent life. With the growth of social media, this, too, becomes difficult."
