Arvind Vegda believes that, “Always keep your hard work in progress”.There is a more significant opportunity waiting for every opportunity lost. It’s just that one should never be disappointed with failures as hard work always pays.
Soon after his big setbacks in 2015, he got an offer for being in Bigg Boss 9 reality show, where he got appreciated by The Salman Khan for his ‘Bhai Bhai’ song, which he still believes to be his outstanding achievement.
He then had to choose between Navratri Nights and Bigg boss 9, whereby he decided Bigg Boss and is happy about it—following that, he even got appreciated by Ranveer Singh in front of the vast public. There he was labeled as the singer of ‘Bhai Bhai’. He also sang the title song of the movie ‘Fan’ in the Gujarati version.

He is Currently hosting two laughter shows, in Doordarshan and one show named khadkadahat. He even has a channel online whereby he motivates through music, and he has brighter plans ahead.

Success doesn’t have any age, so keep working hard for your dreams that would ever pay off.
