Meri Aawaaz Hi Pehchan Hai...

Continuing with our special series on legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar's 84th Birthday, we bring you yet another fascinating fact from her life!

Khemchand Prakash, the guru of music maestro Naushad, impressed by Lata's voice experimented with her for his movie super hit movie MAHAL (1949). However Khemchand Prakash strictly instructed Lata that the movie was being directed by renowned director Kamal Amrohi who was a perfectionist and didn't entertained any error. Hence, Lata did a number of rehearsals and the song Aayega Aanewala.... went on to become the chartbuster of that year.

Though the song brought her into lime-light the gramophone company of India didn't give credit to Lata, instead it credited Kamini, the character of actress in the movie. Also, Lata is yet to receive the song's promised remuneration!!!
