Amitabh Bachchan took took on to Twitter to wish Lata Mangeshkar on her special day and wrote, “”Your voice is the thread that connects the human spirit to the almighty. Happy Birthday, many many happy returns of the day. Love, respect and may you live many more years.”
Music composer Salim Merchant, singer Shaan, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, actor Prosenjit Chatterjee, singer and composer Kailash Kher also took to Twitter to wish the legendary singer.
Lata Magneshkar has recorded songs for over a thousand Bollywood movies and has lent her voice for over thirty six regional Indian languages and foreign languages. Having started her classical music training from Ustad Amanat Ali Khan in the year 1945, she also learnt music from Amanat Khan Devaswale and Pandit Tulsidas Sharma after Amanat Ali left for Pakistan post the Partition.
Though Lata Magneshkar started singing at the age of thirteen, she got her first major break in Hindi cinema by composer Ghulam Haider. He asked her to sing Dil Mera Toda in 1948 film Majboor. But it was Aayega Aanewaala from the film Mahal in the year that catapulted her to success. Composed by music director Khemchand Prakash and lip-synced on screen by Madhubala, the song became a rage and since then there has been no looking back for this legendary singer.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish Lata Mangeshkar a very happy birthday!!!!
