Abhijeet left home for Mumbai in 1981 to study Chartered Accountancy. After completing a degree in CA during Internship, due to his fascination for singing and music, Bhattacharya decided to pursue a career in playback singing.

After stuggling for food, shelter and work for more than two years in Mumbai , he received a call from Rahul Dev Burman whom he considers as his Godfather, to sing for Dev Anand's son's debut film Anand Aur Anand in 1984. This was his debut film and in his very first movie, he got the opportunity to sing a song along with his idol Kishor Kumar , Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar. Despite of successful music, the film didn't do well at box office and Abhijeet's career failed even before getting started and he had to struggle again for further 6 years until 1990 when composer duo Anand-Milind reintroduced him in Salman Khan starrer "Baaghi".

In the 1990s and 2000s, Abhijeet became one of the top choice among the music directors along with Kumar Sanu and Udit Narayan. His songs include work from the film Baaghi, composed by Anand-Milind: "Ek Chanchal Shokh Hasina"," "Chandni Raat Hai" and "Har Kasam Se Badi Hai". This was followed by several chartbusters from movies such as Khiladi, Shola Aur Shabnam both of which were also box office hits. Then in 1994, he performed for movies like Yeh Dillagi ("Ole Ole"), Anjaam, Raja Babu and Main Khiladi Tu Anari. He won the Filmfare Best Playback Singer Award for Yes Boss in 1997. He went on to record for the movies Baadshah, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Josh, Dhadkan, Raaz, Tum Bin, Chalte Chalte, Main Hoon Na, Dil Se Pooch Kidhar Jaana Hai and many others. Grahan (2004) has two songs sung by him: "Kehte Hai Jis Ko" and "Chup Chup" with Kavita Krishnamurty and Asha Bhosle, respectively.

In a career spanning over two decades, he went behind the microphone to lend his voice to the portrayals of Bollywood stars including Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Suniel Shetty, Hrithik Roshan Ajay Devgan and Ranbir Kapoor, and rendered his voice in a a range of genera from romantic and emotional songs to Peppy songs such as "Badi Mushkil Hai" "Roshni se" and "Mere Khyaloon Ki Malika" and fun numbers like "Ole Ole", "Tan Tana Tan" and "Jab Tak Rahega Samosa Mein Aloo". Abhijeet has worked with veteran music directors like R.D. Burman, Bappi Lahiri and Laxmikant Pyarelal. Most of his popular songs are composed by Anu Malik, Jatin Lalit, Nadeem Shravan and Anand Milind. Abhijeet also holds the record of singing and recording the longest song of 18 minutes in studio.
