A Ray Of Hope, Followed By A Series Of Misfortunes

Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the well-acclaimed director recognized his talent and went over to contact him. Bhansali appreciated him and said that whether he won or not, it didn’t matter. He made Arijit sing the song ‘Yun Shabnami’ for his upcoming movie ‘Saawariya’, which turned out to be a huge hit later on, but however during the filmmaking process, the film script changed and the song was no more required, so it never got released.

After this incident, Bhansali lost contact with him and Arijit went back home.
