Rajesh Roshan: “I’ve Made Lataji Promise To Sing For Me Again”

 Composer Rajesh Roshan shares  a  very special  bonding with the  legendary  Lata Mangeshkar. They  worked closely  on  melodies  like Bhool gayi sab kuch(Julie), Pal bhar mein  yeh kya ho gaya(Swami), Pardesia(Mr Natwarlal) and  Wada  no tod(Dil Tujhko Diya).

Rajesh has now asked Lataji to  sing for  him again.  “The last time  she sang for  me was in Karan Arjun 25 years ago. I have now asked her to sing for me again.”

Rajesh  had a very emotional conversation with Lataji recently.  “My eyes were moist when I  spoke to her after  a long time. She  was  so  warm and  her memory is razor-sharp  . She could recall  incidents  in our  lives from the time my  brother(Rakesh Roshan) and  I were  young children.”

Rajesh’s  mother  Ira Roshan  and Lataji were friends.
