This is what Lata Mangeshkar has to say about Janhvi Kapoor

Mumbai: Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar does not see too many films any more. But she did catch glimpses of Anil Kapoor’s homage to herself in Fanney Khan, and Boney Kapoor and the late Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi debut film Dhadak. Check here what Lata Mangeshkar say about Janhvi Kapoor.

Lata is all praise for the two.

“Boney and Anil are both very close to us Mangeshkar’s. I had even attended Anil’s engagement to Sunita, though I couldn’t attend his wedding. I am so glad his daughter Sonam is married and is doing some really good work too. There was a time when actresses had to slow down after marriage.

“Thankfully, those days are over. As a working woman,  and I’ve been working since the age of 12, it would be completely unacceptable for me to give up my career after marriage.”

Boney too is a close family friend.

“After he lost Srideviji so suddenly, his daughter’s debut is a reason for him to smile. Janhvi is pretty. I’d love to sing for her.”

In the meanwhile, the songstress is all praise for Anil’s unflagging enthusiasm in Fanney Khan.

“Anilji plays a fan of mine and Rafi saab. He wants his daughter in the film to be like me. It’s very flattering to be still thought of as a hero and an icon. I’ve been lucky to be emulated for decades now. But I want to tell the singers of our country, ‘Do not be another Rafi, Kishore, Lata, Asha or Mukesh. Be yourself. Learn dedication to the craft from us. But do not imitate us’.”
