    Lata Mangeshkar's Sister Meena Mangeshkar: Didi Doesn't Enjoy Today's Film Songs

    Lata Mangeshkars Sister Meena Mangeshkar: Didi Doesnt Enjoy Todays Film Songs

    In the interview, Meena stated that Lata started working even as a 12-year-old. "My most joyous memories of Didi are from her childhood, one which was taken away from her. We are only two years apart. So, I've grown up close to her. I clearly remember her laughs, songs, and what all she did as a child," she says.

    She stated that the whole story would have been different, had their father did not pass away so early. Talking of Mangeshkar's father, she stated that he was a very traditional person and that he would've not allowed her to sing for cinema. Instead, she might have become a classical singer. "Our parents were traditional. So, they might have married her off. And maybe, she'd have had a family and kids. If he was there, everything - including all our lives - would have been different," she said.

    Talking about her musical journey, she stated that Lata stopped singing as she does not like today's music. "About 10 days back, she recorded a song for a Marathi movie. She doesn't sing much now, especially for films. She takes up a song only if the lyrics and music are good. Music is her life. But she doesn't enjoy today's film songs much due to the lyrics and heavy-duty beats," reveals Meena Mangeshkar-Khadikar.

    When she was asked about the possibility of a biopic on the journey of Lata Mangeshkar, she stated that Lata has never been in favour of it.
