Lata’s voice missing in Yash Chopra’s next


Yash Chopra’s soul sister, muse and self-proclaimed ‘Mata Saraswati’- reincarnated Lata Mangeshkar isn’t singing in the director’s new venture. In a conversation Yashji gushed, “Lataji has always been so kind to me. She can never say no to me. As long as I am there and she’s there she’ll continue to sing for my films”. Says the source, “Yash Chopra was adamant that Lataji sing. It’s a commitment he has made to her and to himself. Yashji’s new film’s music composer A R Rahman and lyricist Gulzar were also keen to bring together the Jiya jale jaan jale ‘Lataji-AR-Gulzar’ team together once again. But the rest of the crew felt Lataji’s voice didn’t match Katrina Kaif’s voice at all. They regretfully decided to make do without Lataji’s voice.”‘ When one touched base with Lataji on the matter she had no clue why she was not singing for the new Yash Chopra film . “I don’t now know what Yashji has in mind for me. If he calls me I will go without a second thought.” Some of Lataji’s memorabilia for Yash Chopra:
