He has already done more than 20 movies and is working on some more. He is the only TV actor who has made it big in Bhojpuri cinema.
Ghazal stalwarts like Jagjit Singh can breathe easy because there is a worthy replacement slowly making his foray into the elite list of Gazal singers. Ranjit Singh Rajwada, is a 19 year old boy from Jaipur.

His performance on the famous ghazal ‘para para…’ by Ustaad Ghulam Ali saab at the show auditions left the judges captivated. Ranjit feels lucky that he got a chance to perform in front of legends like Lata Mangeshkar and Ghulam Ali Saab. He has been felicitated by former President Mr. Abdul Kalam for his excellent rendition in classical music.
