New Delhi, Sep 08 (ANI): Asha Bhosle, the evergreen singer turns a year “younger”. The bollywood legend was once at number 2 after the famed rivalry with elder sister Lata Mangeshkar. They are from the family of musicians and especially after Lata, the eldest Mangeshkar, decided to enter Bollywood it was a given that Bhosle would follow suit to try her luck in playback. The icon has been singing in Hindi films for nearly seven decades, a feat that has earned her an entry into the Guinness Book of World Records. She owns a record for recording over 11,000 songs in 20 different languages. Bhosle is more like a rock star, an indefatigably cool figure in the Hindi film industry whose music has both grooved and moved us beyond words. She’s also a cook in her spare time and runs a series of restaurants. A few years ago, when asked by BBC to explain the connection between singing and cooking, she said, “If you can sing well then you need to eat well, and if you eat well then you usually enjoy cooking. Cooking comes from the heart – it should be made with love, for others to enjoy, just like singing.”
