IMDb.com : Ironically, for someone of her stature, she made her entry into Bollywood at the wrong time. She was rejected from many projects because it was believed that her voice was too high-pitched and thin.
Lata Mangeshkar on Wikipedia : Mangeshkar was featured in the Guinness Book of World Records from 1974 to 1991 for having made the most recordings in the world. Over the years, while several sources have supported this claim, others have raised concerns over its veracity, claiming that this number was highly exaggerated and that Mangeshkar’s sister, Asha Bhosle, had more song recordings than she had.
Gaurav : After India’s losses in the India-China war in 1962,Lataji with Pandit NehruLata had sung the song, Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon, Zara Aankh Me Bhar Lo Pani. The song, moved the then Indian Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, to tears and he confessed ‘Beti toone mujhe rula diya’
End(-)Of(-)World Music : A set of Hindi devotional songs composed by her brother, Lata’s versatility and vocal talents are evident as she sings against a basic band of instruments: tablas, manjiras, shakers, and tanpura. There is additional shading provided by the odd violin part, sarangi, reed instrument, burst of zither/ santoor, or sweet melodic question posed by a bansuri but the prevailing sound is far more spare than your average Lata hit!
Bollywoodgate : “If you ask me I don’t know how I’ve managed to remain professionally active for so long. It’s a miracle that I can still give playback voice to today’s heroines like Kareena Kapoor. I’ve no explanation for it”, – Lata Mangeshkar
Masala : “I’m open to all kinds of songs, but the only thing I look for is the lyrics. The lyrics have to be meaningful. I would like the producers and the directors to approach with soulful and meaningful tracks,” added the veteran singer .here.
Indian Melody : Her song “Tere Bin Nahin Jeena” in the latest venture “Kachhe Dhage” is the last film in which the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan has given the music. It is said that Nusrat insisted that he would score the music for the film only if Lata was the playback singer.
