Lata Mangeshkar-Asha Bhosle: Lata Mangeshkar is often referred to as the 'Nightingale of India'. Lata sang for around seven decades in Hindi cinema, apart from giving her voice to regional movies as well. She played a role in immortalising Mughal-e-Azam (1960) by giving her voice to Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya. RD Burman once referred to Asha as the Gary Sobers of singing while terming Lata as Don Bradman. Asha Bhosle's career spanned six decades, and she has given her voice to practically every leading lady of each era. Asha's award-winning songs comprise Parde Mein Rehne Do from Shikar (1968), Piya Tu Ab To Aaja from Caravan (1971), Dum Maro Dum from Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1972), Yeh Mera Dil from Don (1978), Dil Cheez Kya Hai from Umrao Jaan (1981) and Mera Kuch Samaan from Ijaazat (1987). Their younger sister, Usha Mangeshkar, too, has recorded Hindi, Marathi, Nepali and Gujarati songs. She came to spotlight after singing devotional songs in Jai Santoshi Maa (1975). And did you know the Burman family and the Mangeshkar family have a connection? Asha Bhosle was the second wife of RD Burman.
