Playback star Arijit Singh is set to take on a new role, as music composer in the upcoming film Pagglait, starring Sanya Malhotra.  "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 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," said Arijit. Arijit Singh: I Try to Bring a Sense of Uniqueness to My Songs.
