On Wednesday, veteran singer Asha Bhosle turned 88 years old. The iconic vocalist began her career in 1943 and went on to have a long and prosperous career in the music industry that spanned more than six decades. She has also released a number of private albums and songs. Bhosle has also performed solo performances both in India and overseas.
She was named the most recorded artist in music history by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2011. The vocalist has proven her worth in the music industry with hits like 'Parde Mein Rehne Do,' 'Piya Tu Ab To Aaja,' and 'Dum Maro Dum,' among others. In 2000, Bhosle received the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, and in 2008, he received the Padma Vibhushan.
On the occasion of 88th birthday, Asha Bhosale said, “I haven’t celebrated my birthday for many years. Ghar mein simple sa hota hai mahul, aur bacche cake kaat lete hain. Party ya zyada kuch nahi hota. Birthday is not a special day for me. Hum toh buddhe hote hai us din. It is something that kids celebrate,” confesses Bhosle, adding, “I celebrated my birthday once when I turned 75. We invited every singer I’ve worked with and share a close bond with. Uske Baad, I asked my family to refrain from (throwing) a party. This year, I will be in Lonavala with my daughter-in-law and granddaughter.”
Adding up, “Just before the pandemic, I did three live shows. It was because of the Covid-19 crisis that many of my shows got cancelled. Pandemic mein toh puri duniya hi baith gai. I’m just waiting for things to get normal so that I can resume my live shows,” admits Bhosle.
