Veteran singer, Asha Bhosle has opened up about the controversy surrounding her sister Lata Mangeshkar’s spoof video, which was released by comedian Tanmay Bhat.
The video, which has has caused quite a stir amongst the film fratenity and beyond, featured characters based on Mangeshkar and cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.
Talking to Bombay Times, Bhosle said, “I have not seen the video nor do I intend to. My grandson Chintu informed me about it as I don’t even watch television. I don’t want to say anything except for we are talking about a woman (Lata didi), who has worked for 70-80 years of her life, spreading joy and happiness through her music. I now want to wait and watch how many people will stand by us. Most people have a knack of debating about it for a couple of days and forgetting about it. Aaplya deshat, Bharat Ratnancha kiti aadar aahe hey baghaycha aahe (I want to see what respect and honour do the Bharat Ratnas get in our country). The government has bestowed this honour upon them. They must make a note of this.”
