Lata Di overwhelmed by Baiju Mangeshkar and Jatin Sharma’s magical 93rd Birthday gift!
The undisputed Melody Queen of India, Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar idolised the late K.L.Saigal, the superstar singer/actor of the ’30s and ’40s who inspired and paved the way for many singers later including herself. All through her childhood, she harboured this great dream and wish to meet him and sing a duet with him. Alas, that was not meant to happen because just a few months before she made a mark on the music scenario, K.L.Saigal, unfortunately, passed away. But this unfulfilled desire lingered on inspite of her meteoric rise and glorious career.
Baiju Mangeshkar (singer/composer and her nephew) expressed this idea to his friend and music associate Jatin Sharma, a composer and very successful music arranger to create a duet using their voices with the help of modern technology. Jatin Sharma rose to this challenge instantly.
Today on her 93rd birthday, a never before duet of pairing the incredible voices of K.L.Saigal and Lata Mangeshkar for the world to hear this magical partnership! ‘Main Kya Janu Kya Jadu Hai!
Lata di when presented with the melody at the dot of midnight, was extremely overjoyed and overwhelmed with tears, as she heard her voice with Saigal Saab. This is the best gift I have received,” she remarked. “The fulfilment of an unfulfilled dream to sing with Saigal Saab coming to life, seamlessly, thanks to modern technology! “This gift is truly timeless and priceless.”
Kindly note that this track is a humble gift from Baiju and Jatin making her wish to come to fruition!
