The inimitable combination of music wizard S. D. Burman and melody queen Lata Mangeshkar is literally a treasure trove for music lovers for generations to come. In fact S. D. Burman was so obsessed with the divine voice of Lata Mangeshkar that he would often say, “Just give me Lata and a harmonium and I can make any number of melodious music.”

Well, if the two shared such a passionate relation then why did S.D. Burman boycott Lata Mangeshkar in the late 50's?

In a candid interview Lata Mangeshkar, clarifying the mystery behind the rift between two, said, “This happened in 1957 when I was recording for S. D. Burman for the movie MISS INDIA starring Nargis and Pradeep Kumar.”

She informed, “After recoding a particular song Burmanda was not completely satisfied with the result. He asked me to add little more pathos and sweetness into the song. I obliged but since it was quite late it was decided to re-record the song a few days later.”

She added, “Next week I had a hectic schedule hence when Burmanda's person came to me seeking a fresh date for recording I asked him to wait for another week. But, unfortunately the person poisoned Burmanda's mind. He complained Burmanda that I had arrogantly refused to oblige his command and had even kicked him out saying - ‘Lata is not a slave of S. D. Burman to dance to his tunes!'

“The ugly misinterpretation of my statement by the person created the difference between us and in anger Burmanda announced that he will not work with me and instead opted for Asha Bhosle,” she concluded.

Thus, the legendary duo did not work for three –four years but when his Burmanda's son, R. D. Burman made his debut as music director, Burmanda personally called Lata Mangeshkar over the phone and urged her to sing for his son.

Lata Mangeshkar like a humble human being forgot all the differences and obliged thus leading to the cease fire of misunderstanding.
