When we were young, our mothers waited and waited for us to leave for school. They wanted all the noise makers out of the house so that they could turn on the radio and listen to the melodious songs of Asha Bhosle.
She has won millions of hearts with her voice and at one point of time, we all have sung her songs and admired her talent.
While we often recognize the faces of the Bollywood, we seldom admire the people in the background – play back singers, directors, writers etc for adding a truly magical touch to the Bollywood movies.
The tables are turning for a lot of us have realized what a folly that is. The big T.V. channels and media houses are leading the cause and making the entire world happier and a better place.
Today’s post is about one such event that’s happening tomorrow, i.e. September 8, 2017, on Zee Classic.
