Anand Bhosle presents a little-before-seen son's eye view of Asha Bhosle. Firstpost: How I would go if Kishore Kumar was recording or RD Burman. Mostly it would Firstpost: Did you have a normal relationship with your mom, she was so busy! In fact he would often seek her advice in a composition. Asha Bhosle (born 8 September ), is an Indian singer. She is best known as a playback . Bhosle and Nayyar had a professional and personal parting of ways in the Many people have speculated about a romantic relationship between the . In a rare feat, noted lyricist Gulzar, music director R.D. Burman and Asha. Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar speaks about her sister Asha Bhosle and People say all kinds of things about our relationship. . What is your advice for the coming generations of artists and entertainers who look up to you? Then there were Madan Mohan, SD Burman, RD Burman, Jaidev, Salil.
To her each show is the first show. All this talk about the rivalry between her and Lata, what is it about? Mama's favourite is Latashe does not like any other singer, she says it openly. My aunt, on her part admires her, says what Asha can do no body else can do. I think when they started, she was seen as Lata's shadow, and soon got conscious that she should not copy her, and do something else.
Today in the history of Indian music, there is no one else who can jump from classical to hip hop to jazz only she can do it, she can do anything. Of course there is professional rivalry between my aunt and Mom, there is nothing wrong in that, it is natural.
But both cannot stand the other being hurt in any way. They do not discuss music at all, and have a grudging respect for each other.
How did it feel when your mother married again. R D was also so much younger We loved Pancham, everybody in the family loved him, he was such fun, made us all laugh so much when he was around. And the marriage was not like staying in a separate house He would stay in his house, he had his mother then to look after, and she was here.
He never interfered in our lives, he was not a stranger and we were adults. Besides they did great work together, and we were fans of both. Asha-ji is an entrepreneur too, and has a few restaurants. How did that happen? We felt she should take her passion of cooking internationally. Her cooking was legendary, she would cook for the unit, for her friends, for other stars She is very hands on, visits all her restaurants, there's ten of them now, and works with the chefs.
Does she cook too at these places?
What Asha can do before the mike, I can never do: Lata Mangeshkar
Recently all the chefs congregated in Dubai to prepare dishes to add to the menu. She was also there, cooking, and all of them would end up singing as they worked. Is the musical legacy being handed down? Any singers in the new generation? My mom is gung-ho training my daughter, at eleven she has sung a song in Mai.
We thought it was a good start, since her grandmother was also in the same film. She is a great teacher, always helps younger co-singers. She likes others to do well. Anu Malik, Nadeem Shravan, she has helped them all. They admit it openly. Asha Bhosle at the launch of the album for her film 'Mai'. Your image of her Anand Bhosle: Large hearted, generous, feisty. She says, "I have faced a lot of turmoil, but I have taken it all in front, nothing on my back.
And she is never afraid to try something new, in life. So, all these many firsts in collaborations are a result. Is there any thing about her you don't approve of or understand? I don't understand her need for ritual, for feeding Brahmins or having them come and recite mantras and shlokas.
But she explains that the vibrations have effect,and perhaps she can understand their tonal quality being a singer herself. You are her manager. How much does she let you manage her? She is open minded. And will take advice. She tells me, when I am serving you food or watching you eat across the dinner table, I see the little boy I used to feed with my hands. But sometimes you speak like my father I can learn from you. On my part I suggest, I prompt, explain If she is uncomfortable, I drop it.
Do you think they need or want my advice? The young today are far smarter than I ever used to be. And they get success far more easily than I did. Each day was a new struggle for me. Even when I began to get work regularly there was the challenge of doing my best.
Singing a song for Naushad Saab was not the same as singing for Shankar-Jaikishan. Every song brought its own fresh challenges. Haan, there was that junoon to excel.
Is there an absence of truly creative music directors today? Shankar Mahadevan is a decent human being,a very talented and humble artist.
I rate humility very high as a quality in an artist. Arrogance is unacceptable to me. Main hamesha jhuk kar hi pranaam karti hoon. But yes,the kind of composers that I had the privilege of working with, was exceptional. I feel I was a child in a departmental store filled with the most amazing goodies. Just see the singers that I got to work with: Both my sister and I were motivated to do our best by the composers and singers who were around with us. We learnt while we worked.
Asha Bhosle Whom do you consider your biggest influences? You mean in my singing? Yet every song was like creating a child. I obeyed my composers, and then added something on my own to each song. Do you feel sorry for them? No, not at all. Moreover nowadays the scope for songs in our films is limited. Singers are more partial to stage shows. Because they are hardly getting playback songs.
Have you stopped singing for films? I will sing till I can.
