asha bhosle in aankhon ki masti lyricsAsha Bhosle was a member of the musical family of Deenanath Mangeshkar, a Marathi and Konkani, and his Gujarati wife, Shevanti, and was born on September 8, 1933, in the small hamlet of Goar in Sangli, then in the honorable princely state of Sangli (now in Maharashtra). On the Marathi musical stage, Deenanath performed as both a classical singer and an actor. Asha’s father passed away when she was nine years old. From Pune, the family relocated to Kolhapur, and from there to Mumbai. To help their family, she and her older sister, Lata Mangeshkar, started singing and acting in movies.

asha bhosle husbandIn the Prabhukunj Apt neighborhood of South Mumbai’s Peddar Road is where Asha’s home is located. When Asha was 16 years old, she and Ganpatrao Bhosle fled together. The couple split up in 1960. They have five grandchildren and three children. Her oldest kid, Hemant Bhosle (who was named after Hemant Kumar), spent the majority of his formative years working as a pilot before quitting to pursue a brief career as a music director. On October 8, 2012, Varsha Bhosle committed suicide. She was 56 years old and a columnist for The Sunday Observer and Rediff.

Anand Bhosle, Asha’s youngest child, has a background in both business and film directing. He is in charge of Asha’s career. Chaitanya (Chintu) Bhosle, Hemant’s son, and her grandson are musicians. He is a member of “A Band of Boys,” the first and only boy band in India. Lata and Usha Mangeshkar, her sisters, are playback singers. Her other siblings are music directors Meena Mangeshkar and Hridaynath Mangeshkar. The seizure of Apple Inc. The store in Mumbai is run by her granddaughter, Zanai Bhosle, who is Anand Bhosle’s daughter. Emerging Kathak dancer and singer Zanai has performed with Asha Bhosle.

The Kishore-Asha songs together from films like Anpadh, which starred Vijendra Ghatke in the main role and Sarika and Ashok Kumar in their supporting roles, as well as “Sarika” and “Salamat Raho Tum,” are among Hemant; however, Bhosle’s best-known songs. Hemant died from cancer in 2015.

Her secretary, Ganpatrao, was Asha’s first husband. In 1960, their marriage fell apart terribly. Her in-laws and spouse treated her poorly. After a few years of marriage, Asha was forced to leave her husband by a dubious Ganpatrao, and she returned to her mother’s house while carrying her third child and with two other kids. She kept singing in movies to make money. In 1980, Asha wed Rahul Dev Burman. Rahul and Asha were both getting married for the second time. Rahul, who is 6 years her junior, previously divorced Rita Patel in 1971.

asha bhosle telugu songsAsha enjoys cooking, which is one of her favorite pastimes. She frequently receives a barrage of requests from Hindi film superstars for Kadai ghost and biryani dishes, and she has very infrequently refused a request. The Kapoor family of Hindi films enjoys her Paya dish, Goan fish curry, and dal a lot. She once responded, “I would have become a cook,” when The Times of India asked her what she would have done if her singing career had not taken off. I would have made money by cooking in four homes. Asha’s passion for cooking propelled her into the restaurant industry. She owns and operates Asha’s restaurants in Kuwait and Dubai. Traditional northwestern Indian food is served at Asha’s.

In addition to three restaurants in Kuwait at The Avenues Mall, the Marina Mall, and a brand-new third location at the Spoons Complex, it has a presence in the Wafi City complex in Dubai. Other eateries may be found in the Khaldiya Mall in Abu Dhabi, the Villagio in Doha, and the City Center Mall in Bahrain. Future locations are also planned for Cairo, Egypt, and the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai. Asha Bhosle owns 20% of the company. The Wafi Group manages the restaurant’s daily operations; Asha is not involved in this. She looks after the kitchen and the furnishings. She spent nearly six months individually instructing the chefs. Russell Scott, a former executive at the fish and chips giant Harry Ramsden’s, reportedly acquired the UK rights to Asha’s brand and had plans to launch up to 40 restaurants over the following five years, according to a December 2004 report in Menu Magazine. Asha just inaugurated a brand-new eatery in Birmingham, United Kingdom, as a part of her restaurant business. The Madame Tussauds exhibit in New Delhi will shortly include Asha Bhosle.


About remix albums: “Our children nowadays listen to remixes and fusions. But they should be exposed to our own music in its original forms. They should listen to classical music as well. That way, they will develop good understanding of our roots in general and music in particular.”

About the Grammy nominations: “It is the dream of an artiste to get a Grammy Award…. I am having the pleasure of receiving the award merely by the nomination.”

I never think about the past. Why waste time thinking about something I cannot change.

If we don’t put some acting in a dance song, no one would be able to dance on it.

Music is in all our minds and hearts and we are all free to sing anywhere we choose.

If you don’t try out new things, then you will be left behind.

I’m like a shark. I can’t keep still. Some call me a workaholic.

With a live audience, if you sing with the right feeling, the response you get is a high, an excitement. There’s nothing in the studio that can give you anything quite like that.

I used to like Mukeshji very much because his Hindi was excellent. It was very clear, and his pronunciation was excellent. No one could match that.

Most of my colleagues have been insulated in Indian music alone – they did not think of the world beyond what they knew – but I always did and still do.

I always enjoyed singing and working with the late Kishore Kumar. He was a legendary playback singer, an actor, and a producer/director.

I prefer films and dramas based on families and relationships – films which focus on love and harmony.

I have sung in all languages, and so every people know me – Gujarati, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu.

Those who are not trained singers will find that their voice quavers. That should not happen. The quaver should be used only where necessary and not because a singer cannot hold a note or a tune.

The Seventies was a golden period for music, both around the world and in India.

It is unethical to promote old songs sung by new artistes, and the government should ban these things.

I have sung as many as 6,000 songs of various hues, be they classical, pop or folk songs. I have even performed free of charge for the Maharashtra government.

Performing in each city is a different experience. But somehow, New York is unique. It is like performing in the entertainment capital of the world.

By now, everyone knows I do not just sing standing in the middle of the stage. I also dance and get others to dance with me.

I was approached for acting roles when I was young. I had said that I look into the mirror every day and don’t think my face suits for the big screen. So I will not do the films.

I don’t run after money or fame. The only thing I have always wished is to be a classical singer.

When you don’t know how to pronounce words, when you don’t know the meaning of the words, how will you imbibe a song with feeling?

There is a gap between the heart and brain – that is where the soundbox lies. Some sing from their heart; others use their brain.

Hindi film music has always been completely driven by the plot. We singers never had any say in compositions.

My songs would be nothing had it not been for my father. I follow his footsteps.

In the old days, all the movie songs were recorded right there on set.

The truth is, I’ve got a naturally outgoing nature, and I still have a great love for experimentation.

With singing, you get lost in the music – I go into another world when I’m singing.

Only when you know the nuances of a language can you sing a song well.

I have brought up my kids single-handedly. So, a strenuous routine is something I thrive on, not shy away from.

Lata Mangeshkar is Lata Mangeshkar. Nobody can ever touch her.

People forget how the same children brought up with affection, effort, and love are the ones who later kick their parents.

Singing is my first love.

asha bhosle le gayiThe hedonistic anthem “Dum Maaro Dum,” written by RD Burman and hummed by Asha for a sensual Zeenat Aman extolling the benefits of hashish, challenged conventional notions of morality and music. Even though the movie’s plot was anti-drug, Air India Radio nonetheless decided to ban the song.

D. Burman (Asha’s husband) was once accused of singing nasally by Bollywood singer Himesh Reshammiya. If somebody says Burman Sa’ab sung through his nose, he should be smacked, Asha retorted in response to this.
