Lata sings for Gujarati film after 25 years
By Viral Bhayani, IANS
Lata Mangeshkar, India's most popular singer, has rendered her magical voice to a Gujarati film sing after a gap of 25 years.
"I stopped getting many offers as there were not many (Gujarati) films being made. But when award winning Gujarati music director Pankaj Bhatt approached me ... I just could not decline the offer," said Mangeshkar.
"Also, the song is so special to me and it would just not be right if I did not sing Bapuji's bhajan 'Vishnava jana to tayne kahiye,'" Mangeshkar told IANS.
The film, "Dukhiyo Na Beli>: Bapa Sitaram", will be out by the Diwali festival this year. The movie is based on the life of popular Gujarati saint Bajrangdas Bapu.
