How often do we come across a song now-a-days which has the magical voice of Lata Mangeshkar or Asha Bhosle? The answer is rarely. And the makers of BEGUM JAAN have provided the music lovers with that rare one chance as they got the iconic singer Asha Bhosle behind the mike for their song ‘Prem Mein Tohre’.

The makers of this film wanted to approach Asha Bhosle since the beginning but since she hasn’t sung in a while, they were apprehensive about her coming on board.


Music composer of BEGUM JAAN, Anu Malik shared, 'I was not keeping well and Ashaji came over to meet me. I immediately told my wife that I have to work with her. Even Srijit Mukherji, the director was unaware of this. I rang up Srijit from the ICU and told him I will resume work in 10 days.  I composed a tune at the recording studio, and told Srijit that we should get Ashaji to sing the song. Srijit jumped at the idea. I immediately rang Ashaji and told her to come to my place the next day. When she heard the track, she said this song marks the comeback of Asha Bhosle! My first reaction was when did you go in the first place! Her reaction after recording the song was priceless! She exclaimed that she was truly back! I loved her reaction so much since Ashaji loves singing and music. If you hear the song you will know that such a tone and voice cannot be copied or matched. She's a magic and a miracle! I am honoured to have had the chance to work with her. She's 82 and if you hear her now you will be spellbound!'
An excited Srijit Mukherji added, “When a living legend like Asha Bhosle sings for your debut film, it is a miraculous dream come true.” Asha Bhosle was last heard in MAI in 2013.

Actress Vidya Balan is seen celebrating Holi in this song and enjoying the various colors of life, as Asha Bhosle’s poignant rendition of this track adds more beauty to it. Vidya is certainly a blessed actress to get this golden opportunity of having the evergreen singer Asha Bhosle lend her voice for her character in BEGUM JAAN.
