Asha Bhosle’s Autobiography Coming Up. But Sister Lata Mangeshkar Stays Away



Asha Bhosle  who turned  a year older  on September  8 remains as busy as ever  with recordings  and  her grandchildren. Now she  has  one more surprise  in store .

The Mangeshkar family is  nervous about Asha Bhosle’s  forthcoming  autobiography. Not one  to mince  words ,Ms Bhosle is  expected  to  drop  a  few hot potatoes  which may  embarrass  the illustrious Mangeshkar family.

She  says she would rather not   write about her life.  “First  of all, there is nothing in my life that  would be  of interest  to anyone. Sure, I went through  my period  of struggle and hardships. But who doesn’t go through them? Life would not have any meaning without a struggle.”

Surely, Lataji’s millions of fans  and admirers  need to feel motivated  by her story?

Lataji disagrees. “No two  human beings  are  the same. Everyone’s struggle  is different.  Having said this,  my  life is an open book and those who want to derive  any motivation from it are free to pluck what they  like.”
