Filmfare awards

Asha Bhosle has won seven Filmfare Best Female Playback Awards out of 18 nominations.[17] She won her first two awards in 1967 and 1968, when Lata Mangeshkar still used to accept the award (Mangeshkar asked not to be considered for the award nominations after 1969 to promote new talent).

Asha Bhosle: Rivalry with Lata Mangeshkar

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

Asha Bhosle: Rivalry with Lata Mangeshkar

Asha’s sibling rivalry with her sister Lata Mangeshkar is often talked about, in spite of their insistence that these are just tales. As young children, they were very close. As a child, Lata used to carry Asha all the time. They were so inseparable that when Lata went to school she would take Asha with her, but one day the teacher protested and said that they cannot have two students on one fee. Lata refused to return to school without Asha and quit her studies.

Lata considered Asha’s act of eloping with her lover as irresponsible, leaving her alone to sing and earn for the family. This led to tensions among them. Asha herself accepted in an interview— “It was a love marriage and Lata didi (elder sister) did not speak to me for a long time. She disapproved of the alliance.” At one time, their relationship was very adversarial and there have been periods of non-communication.

Asha Bhosle

In her initial days in the industry, Asha always played second fiddle to her elder sister. Some say that Lata had once said something criticising Asha’s relationship with O. P. Nayyar. This widened the rift between the two sisters and O P Nayyar also decided that he would never work with Lata. O.P. Nayyar had once revealed — “Asha and Lata staying in opposite flats at Bombay’s Peddar Road, shared a common maidservant. Now this maidservant had merely to come and tell the younger sister that Lata had just recorded something wonderful for Asha to lose her vocal poise. Such was her Lata phobia that it took me some months to convince Asha that she had a voice individualistic enough to evolve a singing style all of her own.” Asha once said that she has worked for years to create a voice and a style that was different from Lata, so that she could carve her own niche and not be banished to live her shadow.

Asha and Lata have sung many songs together. Their first duet was for the film Daman (1951) Some of these include Man Bhawan Ke Ghar aye (Chori Chori, 1956), Sakhi ri sun bole papihaa us paar (Miss Mary, 1957), O chaand jahaan woh jaaye (Sharada, 1957), Mere Mehboob Mein Kya Nahi (Mere Mehboob, 1963), Ai kash kisi deewane ko (Aaye Din Bahar Ke, 1966), Main Chali Main Chali (Padosan, 1968), Chhap tilak sab (Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki, 1978), and Man kyun behka (Utsav, 1984). While singing, Lata used to hold her notebook in her right hand, while Asha held her notebook in her left hand. This meant Lata had her face away from Asha, making it difficult for them to “anticipate” each other.

The movie Saaz, was supposedly based on Lata and Asha’s rivalry. Asha said about the movie — “To have two women in long plaits, take a couple of incidents and exaggerate them into a 3-hour film is such a waste of time.” In last few years, Asha and Lata have often been seen in public, enjoying each other’s company. In an interview with The Times of India, Asha once said – “I remember, sometimes both of us would be at a function and some industry types would ignore me and interact only with her, as if to prove their loyalty. Later, didi (elder sister) and I would have a good laugh!”

The famous Bollywood lyricist-filmmaker Gulzar once said – “Asha was like Neil Armstrong’s companion in the space rocket that touched the moon. After Lataji touched down on the moon, Ashaji could only be the second one to get there.”

Asha Bhosle: Personal life

Asha Bhosle: Personal life

Asha’s house is situated in Prabhukunj Apt on Peddar Road area of South Mumbai. She has three children and five grandchildren. The eldest of her three children is Hemant Bhosle (named after Hemant Kumar), spent most of his early years as a pilot and quit to have a brief career as a music director. Asha’s daughter Varsha, who is younger than Hemant, worked as a columnist for The Sunday Observer and Rediff. The youngest child is Anand Bhosle, who has studied business and film direction. He manages Asha’s career. Her grandson, Chaitanya (Chintu) Bhosle (Hemant’s son) also ventured in the world of music, as a member of a successful boy band, “Band of Boys”. Her granddaughter, Anneka Bhosle (Hemant’s daughter) is on her way of becoming a successful Photographer. Her sisters Lata and Usha Mangeshkar are playback singers. The other two siblings, sister Meena Mangeshkar and brother Hridayanath Mangeshkar are music directors.

Asha is an excellent cook and cooking is her favorite hobby. She often gets flooded with requests by Bollywood celebrities for kadai ghosht and biryani and has rarely turned down a request. In fact, her paya curry, Goan fish curry and dal are very popular with the Kapoor family of Bollywood. Once, when asked in a Times of India interview, what if her singing career had not taken off, she said “I would have become a cook. I’d have cooked in four houses and made money.”
Asha is a successful restaurateur and runs restaurants in Dubai and Kuwait, called Asha’s. Asha’s offers traditional north-western Indian cuisine. It has a presence in the Wafi City development in Dubai, as well as two restaurants in Kuwait, at The Avenues Mall and the Marina Mall. Asha Bhosle has a 20% stake in the business. Asha is not involved in day-to-day running of the restaurant which is looked after by the Wafi Group. She takes care of the kitchen and the décor. She personally trained the chefs for almost six months. According to a December 2004 report in the Menu Magazine,[14] Russell Scott, a former head of Harry Ramsden’s (the fish and chips chain), secured the UK rights to the Asha’s brand and planned to open up to 40 restaurants over the next five years. As part of her chain of restaurants, Asha’s, Ashatai has recently opened a new restaurant in Birmingham, UK.

Asha’s fashion statement is white sarees with sparkling embroidery, pearls around her neck and diamonds. Harrington of Kronos Quartet said “The first time I met Ashaji she was dressed in the most beautiful sari with diamonds and looked very regal. Then I looked down and saw that she was wearing tennis shoes! I thought I love this woman.”

Asha is a good mimicry artist as well. At a concert at World Trade Center in Dubai on April 22, 2004, she mimicked the song Kabhi To Nazar Milaao in the voices of Noor Jehan, Lata Mangeshkar and Ghulam Ali.
Nowadays, apart from singing and her restaurant, Asha is also working on her autobiography.

Asha Bhosle: Concerts and collaborations with foreign artists

Asha Bhosle: Concerts and collaborations with foreign artists

In 1980s and 1990s, Asha went globe-trotting, staging concerts in Canada, Dubai, UK, U.S. and many other countries. In 1989, during a world tour, she performed in 13 US cities in 20 days. Immediately after this, she had an already sold-out concert scheduled in Stockholm, Sweden. Due to the stressful schedule, Asha suffered a massive attack of colitis, together with fever, cough and weakness. In Stockholm, a pre-concert crisis meeting was called, attended by Asha’s son (and manager) Anand and the sponsors. It was decided that the orchestra will play many instrumental tracks, the accompanying singers like Suresh Wadkar will shoulder the load, and Asha will make a small appearance. But Asha rejected all such proposals, and sang at the concert with great difficulty, in a not-so-good voice. Her first set of six Bollywood songs did not receive any response from the audience, which consisted mostly of Indian and Pakistani expats. Before the start of the second set of songs, a fan in the crowd requested her to sing a Marathi song. Asha obliged and sang Naach-naachuni ati mi damale (“I’m very tired of this endless dancing”). When the song ended, the auditorium erupted with claps and the encores started. After the concert, Asha was in bed for a month, recuperating from overexertion. In October 2002, she did a concert with Sudesh Bhosle and others, in London, for “Help the Aged” to help raise funds for older people in India. In 2007 she toured the USA, Canada, and West Indies in a tour called “The Incredibles”. In this tour, she was accompanied by singers Sonu Nigam, Kunal Ganjawala and Kailash Kher. This tour went on to hold more than 20 concerts and was originally scheduled for only 12.

In the mid-1980s, Asha sang with Boy George (Bow down mister) and Stephen Lauscombe. In 1997, she sang a love song with the boy band Code Red, at the age of 64. She also recorded the song The Way you Dream (One Giant Leap, ) with Michael Stipe that was used in the English movie, Bulletproof Monk.
In 1997, the British band Cornershop paid tribute to Asha with their song Brimful of Asha, an international hit which was later remixed by Fatboy Slim. In 2001, the CD single of Nelly Furtado’s “I’m Like A Bird” included a “Nellie vs. Asha Remix” created by Digital Cutup Lounge.

In 2002, she appeared along with Michael Stipe on the track “The Way You Dream” on the self-titled album by 1 Giant Leap.
In 2003, British opera pop singer Sarah Brightman sampled her song “Dil Cheez Kya Hai” on her album Harem. It was used as the intro for her song “You Take My Breath Away”.

In 2005, American string quartet Kronos Quartet re-recorded the R D Burman compositions like Chura Liya, Piya Tu, Mera Kuchh Saaman among others and got Asha to sing them. Despite her age (she had crossed 70), she recorded three to four songs in a day, leaving the quartet members stupefied. On August 23, 2005, You’ve stolen my heart – Songs From R D Burman’s Bollywood was released in US. The album was nominated for Grammy Awards 2006 in the category of “Best Contemporary World Music Album”. Earlier, in 1990s, a friend had introduced David Harrington of Kronos Quartet to the song Aaj ki raat. Harrington was mesmerised, and the song ended up on the album Kronos Caravan.

Also in 2005, the Black Eyed Peas sampled her songs “Ae Naujawan Sab Kuchh Yahan” (Apradh, 1972) and “Yeh Mera Dil Pyaar Ka Diwana” (Don, 1978) in their hit single “Don’t Phunk with My Heart”. In late 2006, Asha collaborated with Australian test cricket star, Brett Lee. The single, You’re the One for Me debuted at number 4 on the charts and reached a peak position of number 2.

In 2006 Asha Bhosle recorded one song for the soundtrack of Pakistani movie Mein Ek Din Laut Kay Aaaonga. She sang the song Dil Key Taar Bajey with famous Pakistani pop singer Jawad Ahmed. The song was aired as the part of the film’s promotional campaign and became very popular, featuring on top music charts.

Asha Bhosle: Non-Bollywood music

Marathi music

Along with her sister Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle is regarded as an icon of Marathi music (Marathi is their mother tongue). She has sung several non-film songs of the genre commonly referred to as Bhaav Geet, which consist mostly of poems written by notable poets. A good example is the popular album Rutu Hirawa (“Green Season”), composed by Shreedhar Phadke.

Asha’s renditions of her brother Hridayanath Mangeshkar’s compositions have been very popular with Marathi music lovers. As in Hindi; her Marathi songs also represent her wide range, from westernized tunes like Ruperi Walut (“meet me on the silver sands in the coconut groves”) to complex classical compositions such as Tarun aahe Ratra Ajuni (“The night is still young”). Marathi bhajans sung by her are also very popular among Maharashtrians. A good example is her rendition of saint-poet Dnyaneshwar’s Kanadawo Vithallu. Her rendition of Marathi natya sangeet composed by her father Deenanath Mangeshkar are still popular.
Asha is endearingly referred to as Ashatai (tai is Marathi for elder sister) by Maharashrians. She performs in very popular Marathi concerts like Nakshtranche Dene (translation: Gift from the stars), Aapli Asha Bhosle (translation: Yours, Asha Bhosle).

Private albums
In a rare feat, noted lyricist, Gulzar, music director, R.D. Burman and Asha Bhosle, came together in 1987, to create a double album, titled, Dil Padosi Hai, which was released on September 8, 1987, Asha Bhosle’s birthday . In 1995, Asha underwent the gatha bandan (thread-tying) ceremony with Hindustani classical music maestro Ali Akbar Khan to learn a classical repertoire held within the Maihar gharana (stylistic school of Indian classical music), as handed down to Khan by his father Allauddin Khan (the guru of Ravi Shankar). Later, Asha and Ustad Ali Akbar Khan recorded eleven fixed compositions (or bandishes) in California for Legacy, a private album that won them a Grammy Award nomination.

In 1990s, Asha experimented with the remixed R D Burman songs. She was criticized by many, including Khayyam for tampering with old melodies. Nevertheless, albums like Rahul And I became quite popular. In 1997, Asha did a private Indipop album Janam Samjha Karo with Leslie Lewis. The album was hugely popular and won her many awards including the 1997 MTV Award.

Asha Bhosle

Asha Bhosle

Asha had been once asked by the director B R Ishaara to compose music for one of his films, but she had politely declined. In 2002, she turned music composer with the album Aap Ki Asha, an eight-song music and video album. The lyrics were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri (his last lyrics) and the music was composed by Asha herself. The album was released by Sachin Tendulkar on May 21, 2001 at a lavish party in Mumbai. The album received mixed reviews.

Asha had spotted Pakistani singer Adnan Sami’s talent when he was about 10 years old. At that time was performing in London, with R D Burman. It was she who had asked him to pursue his interests in music seriously. When Adnan grew up and became a professional musician, Asha sang the title duet with him for his best-selling album Kabhi to nazar milao. The two came together again in the album Barse Badal. The album comprises eight songs, based on Indian Classical music. She contributed the song Yun Na Thi to the recording Womad Talking Book Volume Four: An Introduction to Asia 1 on Womad Records.

Asha has sung ghazals for many albums like Meraj-E-Ghazal, Aabshar-E-Ghazal and Kashish. In 2005, Asha released a self-title album (Asha), a tribute to the four ghazal maestros – Mehdi Hassan, Ghulam Ali, Farida Khanum and Jagjit Singh. The album features eight of her favorite ghazals like Farida Khanum’s Aaj Jaane Ki Zid Na Karo, Ghulam Ali’s Chupke Chupke, Aawargi and Dil Mein Ek Lahar, Jagjit Singh’s Ahista Ahista and Mehdi Hassan’s Ranjish Hi Sahi, Rafta Rafta and Mujhe Tum Nazar Se. These classic ghazals were recreated with modern sounds by the musician Pandit Somesh Mathur. The album was aimed at the younger generation, who, according to Asha, are “turned off” by the traditional sounds of tabla and sarangi.

Numerous compilations of Asha’s songs have been released as well. To commemorate her 60th birthday, in 1993 EMI India released three cassettes: Bala Main Bairagan Hoongi (devotional songs), The Golden Collection: Memorable Ghazals (non-film ghazals by composers such as Ghulam Ali, R D Burman and Nazar Hussain), and The Golden Collection: The Ever Versatile Asha Bhosle (44 popular film songs).
In 2006, she recorded an album Asha and Friends, singing duets, with film actors Sanjay Dutt and Urmila Matondkar and famous cricket player Brett Lee, with whom she sang, You’re the One for Me (Haan Main Tumhara Hoon). All these songs composed by Shamir Tandon were shot on video by journalist turned director S Ramachandran.

Rajkumari: A Memorable Voice

Rajkumari: A Memorable Voice

Rajkumari Dubey was just 10 years old when she recorded her first song for HMV in 1934. But she started her career as a stage artiste. She recounts, “Vijay and Shankar Bhatt of Prakash Pictures spotted me during one of my shows. They liked my voice and persuaded me to discontinue acting on stage, as it would spoil my voice. (In those days, there were no mikes and you had to shout to be heard!) So, I quit theatre and became an employee of Prakash Pictures, as an actress and singer.

INTO MOVIES AND MUSIC
My first film with them was a Hindi-Gujarati bilingual called ‘Sansar Leela Nayi Duniya’. In those days, I often acted opposite Zakaria Khan (late actor Amjad Khan’s father, whose screen name was Jayant). And I used to sing for popular music director, Lallubhai.

CHANGING TRACKS
I began getting fed up with having to keep a watch on my figure and decided to stick to just singing as a career. After I quit Prakash Pictures, I started playback singing for actresses like Ratnamala, Shobhna Samarth, etc. I sang a lot of Gujarati and Punjabi songs.

A BORN PROFESSIONAL
I never really had the opportunity to learn singing. But was very good at picking up what my composers taught me. They thought I was a trained singer! My family has always supported me – when I was an actress and singer. I married very late in life. My husband was from Benares (UP), where he spent a lot of his time (because he owned a shop there), while I was settled in Mumbai. Of course, he joined me later.

NOSTALGIA- MY PEERS
I counted among my peers Shamshad Begum, Zohrabai, Juthika Roy, Zeenat Begum, etc. Our voices were very distinct – both Zohra and Shamshad had resounding voices with a high range, while mine was very soft with a smaller range. I sang quite a few songs with Mukesh, the most popular being ‘Mujhe sach sach batado kya, ke kab dil mein samaye the’. I did not get much opportunity to sing with Mohammad Rafi – mainly because Lata Mangeshkar was just getting popular at the time and, then, all of us took a backseat. In ‘Anhonee’, I sang with Lata Mangeshkar – the song was ‘Zindagi badli’. Nargis had a double role, so I sang for one, while Lata Mangeshkar sang for the other. I sang with Nurjehan in ‘Naukar’. While I never sang with KC Dey, I did sing songs composed by him, along with Manna Dey, his nephew.

AN ODE TO SAIGAL
I am a great fan of KL Saigal and Nurjehan. I had occasion to sing with the former in ‘Bhakt Surdas’ and remember him as a very charming person. I have never understood why people criticised him for his drinking, etc. So what if he felt he couldn’t sing without drinking? It was his personal choice. I remember him telling me, ‘Rajkumari’ji’, I want to take you with me when I go from this world.’

MEMORIES ARE MADE OF GEETA AND KIDAR
In ‘Bawre Nain’, while singing for Geeta Bali, she’d come up to me and say mischievously, ‘Look at me – my actions – and sing accordingly.’ She was so full of life. Kidar Sharma, the director, was one of the most talented men I’ve ever known. It was he who groomed Geeta Bali, Raj Kapoor, Mala Sinha and others. But from all his ‘shishyas’, I think only Geeta Bali managed to pick up the nuances of his teachings. Kidar Sharma had his own way of showing his appreciation. If he liked something you did, he’d give you a two ‘anna’ coin. And, in his entire life, he must have given the coin to just three people – Geeta Bali, Raj Kapoor and myself. He treated me with a lot of respect. I sang in his Raj Kapoor-Madhubala starrer ‘Neelkamal’, ‘Bawre Nain’ and several other films.

Rajkumari: An Inspiring Voice

Rajkumari or Rajkumari Dubey has been reckoned as an accomplished Indian playback singer. She was born in the year 1924 in British India. She did not received any training in singing. Her family supported the talent of Rajkumari. In the year 1934, when she recorded her first song, she was only 10 years old. She recorded the song for big music recording house HMV. Then onwards, her career as a stage artist began.

During one of her stage shows, she has been spotted by Vijay Bhatt and Shankar Bhatt of Prakash Pictures. After that she has been employed by the Prakash Pictures as an actress and singer. Hindi-Gujarati bilingual called `Sansar Leela Nayi Duniya` was the first film by Rajkumari under the production of Prakash Pictures. Later on in the year 1933, she got the significant role in the movies Aankh Ka Tara and Turki Sher. In the year 1934, she was made the heroine of the movie Bhakt Ke Bhagwan and Insaaf Ki Topi. In some films she has also playacted with Zakaria Khan (late actor Amjad Khan`s father, whose screen name was Jayant).

Rajkumari

Rajkumari

Rajkumari used to sing under the illustrious music director Lallubhai. But after some years of acting career, she decided to pursue her career only in singing. She quit the Prakash Pictures and started play back singing for actresses like Ratnamala, Shobhana Samarth, etc. However she fetched the honor of being the `First Female Playback Singer of Indian Cinema`. Apart from Hindi she has rendered many songs in Gujarati and Punjabi language.

Without having any formal training in music, Rajkumari possessed an excellent quality of picking up any sort of music. As a classical singer she has established herself. She has enriched her voice quality within the framework of classical forms of thumri and dadra. Shamshad Begum, Zohrabai Ambalewali, Juthika Roy, Zeenat Begum were her comtemporaries. In the film Naukar (released in the year 1943) she has sang song with another illustrious singer Noor Jehan.
