A rumor was floating around saying Lata Mangeshkar had passed away. After coming to know about this, the legendary singer turned to Twitter to dispel the rumors of her demise. “Namaskar. Meri tabiyat ke baare mein afwaayein phail rahi hai. Par aap sab ka pyar aur duaaien hain ke meri tabiyat bilkul thik hai,” her tweet reads.
The veteran singer also condoled the actress Nanda’s death. Remembering Nanda, Lata Mangeshkar says she was great friends with the actress from childhood and they met while Lata was working as a child artiste in Nanda’s father Vinayak Damodar Karnataki’s company.
“I feel sad to know that actress Nanda whom we used to call Baby Nanda has passed away. When she was 4-5 years old, she played the role of my younger brother in a film. I worked in Nanda’s father, master Vinayakji’s company as a child actress since 1943. I was great friends with Nanda and her elder sister Meena. I did playback for her since her first film Toofaan Aur Diya. She was a great human being, may her soul rest in peace,” Lata Mangeshkar, 84, recalled in a tweet.
