Asha Bhosle, the legendary singer, earlier addressed rumours of a sibling rivalry with her elder sister Lata Mangeshkar. As Asha celebrates her 88th birthday, here's a clip from a recent interview in which she discussed an event in which the sisters had a "good laugh."

In 1943, Asha Bhosle began her singing career. Nearly the course of seven decades, she has sung over 12,000 songs. In 2000, she received the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, and in 2008, she received the Padma Vibhushan. There have been rumours of a rivalry between her and Lata Mangeshkar on several occasions.

"She’s my sister and my favourite singer. People did carry tales and try to create trouble, but blood is thicker than water. I remember, sometimes both of us would be at a function and some industry types would ignore me and interact only with her as if to prove their loyalty. Later, didi and I would have a good laugh!”, Asha had said.

A few years back, Asha talked to Mumbai Mirror about the kind of songs her late husband, composer RD Burman, would write for Lata.“He'd give didi (Lata Mangeshkar) all the sweet, romantic songs and every time he'd want to experiment with the form he'd call me to sing. Be it Duniya Mein or Piya Tu (Caravan), Oh Meri Jaan Main Ne kaha (The Train) or Aaja Aaja, O Mere Sona (Teesri Manzil), he'd call me.”
