You’ll be excited to know that she made her way to legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar’s heart. Yes you read it right! Lata Mangeshkar herself expressed her desire to sing for her.

While talking to IANS, the legendary actress said, “Boney too is a close family friend. After he lost Srideviji so suddenly, his daughter’s debut is a reason for him to smile. Janhvi is pretty. I’d love to sing for her.”

Further the legendary singer added, “Boney and Anil are both very close to us Mangeshkars. I had even attended Anil’s engagement to Sunita, though I couldn’t attend his wedding. I am so glad his daughter Sonam is married and is doing some really good work too. There was a time when actresses had to slow down after marriage.Thankfully, those days are over. As a working woman – and I’ve been working since the age of 12 – it would be completely unacceptable for me to give up my career after marriage.”

In Anil Kapoor’s upcoming movie ‘Fanney Khan’, his character name his daughter after Lata Mangeshkar’s name. Recently legendary singer wrote few things about Anil Kapoor on her twitter handle.

Talking about Anil Kapoor, Lata Mangeshkar said, “Anilji plays a fan of mine and Rafi saab. He wants his daughter in the film to be like me. It’s very flattering to be still thought of as a hero and an icon. I’ve been lucky to be emulated for decades now. But I want to tell the singers of our country, ‘Do not be another Rafi, Kishore, Lata, Asha or Mukesh. Be yourself. Learn dedication to the craft from us. But do not imitate us’.”

It rarely happens that Lata express her desire to sing for someone. Seems like Janhvi is one lucky one. Stay tuned with us for more Bollywood news and updates.
