Actors Imran Abbas and Adnan Siddiqui have expressed their condolences and paid respect to iconic vocalist Lata Mangeshkar, who died on Saturday morning at the age of 92.
Mourning her death, the Thora Sa Haq actress tweeted a photo of the legend’s biographical calendar, which she had signed for him. He remarked of the singer’s lovely voice,
“Her voice was a blessing from God for the entire universe, and her contribution to our memories is absolutely unequalled.”
Today marks the end of an era. Lata Ji!!! You vanquished our hearts for decades and would always be ruling as a queen of melody for the years to come,
he added in the caption.
Adnan Siddiqui also posted Mangeshkar’s photo on social media to say her farewell.
For almost eight decades, she ruled hearts of millions and millions, cutting across borders and languages,
A voice so distinctly melodious that Lata di (sic) should be a synonym for melody. Love, longing, pathos, mischief: she mastered every genre and with what aplomb!
Music wont be as melodious anymore but Na Chhedo Kal Ke Afsaane (her song for 1967 movie Raat Aur Din) will still be. Like thousand others,
Dr Pratit Samdani stated that Latta Mangeshkar died of multi-organ failure after more than 28 days in the hospital following COVID-19.
The Beeti Na Bitai Raina singer was also battling pneumonia in addition to the fatal illness, which she got last month.
When it comes to her craft, she needs no introduction as one of Indian cinema’s best singers. She began singing to help her family when her father, Pandit Deenanath Mangeshkar, died in 1942.
Lata Mangeshkar received her first significant break in Bollywood with the song Dil Mera Toda from the 1948 film Majboor. However, her song Aayega Aanewaala from the film Mahal became her first huge breakthrough.
