Asha Bhosle is one more attempt to reinvent herself
Net-savvy granddaughter Zanai had been pushing Asha Bhosle to do it for a while. After a great deal of deliberation, the legendary singer finally gave in to the youngster's demand. On Wednesday night, Bhosle launched her YouTube channel, and a whole new world opened up for her. At 86, this is one more attempt to reinvent herself. Over the decades, she has always experimented with different genres of music.
Now, Bhosle is keen to reach out to youngsters through the digital medium. The celebrated songstress wants to entertain them through modern, fresh and new music. Bhosle will also reveal lesser-known details about herself, replete with anecdotes from her over seven-decade-old career.
IAS officer-turned-actor Abhishek Singh is helping the Delhi Crime season two unit during the lockdown.

He says, "All of us are feeling the impact of this unprecedented crisis but a large section of us is more severely impacted. Netflix and I have come together to take care of our unit of Delhi Crime." Singh will be playing an IAS officer on the show.
