Asha Bhosle Recalls That Lata Mangeshkar Refused To Sing At A Wedding, Said, “Won’t Sing Even If Offered 10 Crore Dollars”

You know, I recently heard someone say that some people have the power to consume us and I think that is so true because some people are just unforgettable. And I think legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar was one of them. Recently, Asha Bhosle talked about her sister and revealed that the late singer refused to sing at a wedding, even though the person offered her a lot of money.

We lost Lata Mangeshkar on February 6, her death left a void in the music industry but people still talk about her and share fond memories of her. Recently, her younger sister, veteran singer Asha Bhosle delivered a heartfelt speech at the Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar Award ceremony. In her speech, she recalled that once the ‘Lag Jaa Gale’ singer was offered to sing at a wedding but she refused. “Someone invited us for a wedding. They had tickets worth million dollar or pound. They said they wanted Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar. Didi asked me ‘will you sing at a wedding?’ I said I won’t and she then told the rep, ‘We will not sing even if you offer 10 crore dollars, because we do not sing at weddings’. That person was very disappointed,” she said.

Asha Bhosle also mentioned that once Lata Mangeshkar went to work despite suffering from a 104-degree fever because she used to worship music. The ‘Sharara’ singer also sang the evergreen song ‘Aayega Aanewala’ at the award ceremony.
