The singer's debut in Bollywood started when the song Khoon Choos Le, from Go Goa Gone, got into the limelight. In an interview with The Statesman, Arjun shared that he has the opportunity for Khoon Choos Le after the Bollywood composer-duo Sachin Jigar heard him on stage with Asha Bhosle. They saw his aptitude for music and decided to give him a try.

Afterward, it was smooth sailing for Arjun as he keeps pumping out one hit after another, with Baaki Baatein Piney Baad featuring famous rapper Badshah as the cream of the crop. Being young, talented and hard-working, Arjun Kanungo was named on the list of Top 50 Most Desirable Men.

Another reason Kanungo is a big Youtube star: his covers and mashups. Mixing an Indian classic like PAL by KK and the western hit See You Again by Wiz Khalifa featuring Charlie Puth, the Youtube sensation really gave us the best of both worlds.

How do you know you're talented? When the original singer of the song you're trying to cover acknowledges you. This is what happened with Arjun's O Saathi. Arijit Singh, who first sang the song in the movie Shab, praised Kanungo's version of the love ballad to be equally good.
