Birthday: Lata Mangeshkar started her career with acting, had to face many rejections

Lata Mangeshkar, who has become famous in India as Swara Kokila, is celebrating her birthday today. Let me tell you that Lata ji has brought the best songs from the days of childhood gurbat to the public and people are crazy about her voice. Lata Mangeshkar was born on 28 September 1929 in Indore and her father Pandit Deenanath Mangeshkar was a classical singer and theater artist.

Lata was the eldest of her three sisters-in-law Meena, Asha, Usha and one brother Hridaynath and Lata Mangeshkar was named 'Hema' at the time of her birth, but a few years later, after one of her theater characters 'Latika', Dinanath Ji named her 'Lata'.

At the same time, at the age of 5, Lata ji started taking music education from her father and used to act in theater. After that when she went to school, she started teaching music to the children there, but when Lata ji was refused to bring her sister 'Asha' to school, she quit school.

At the same time, in 1942, when Lata ji was just 13 years old, her father died, then Lata left to take care of the whole family and she acted in the Marathi film Pahli Mangla Gaur. After that, in 1945, Lata Ji came to Mumbai with her brother-in-law and she studied classical singing from Ustad Amanat Ali Khan and in 1946 she sang the song 'Paa Laangu Kar Jori' in the Hindi film 'Aapki Seva Mein'.

Producer Sashadhar Mukherjee had rejected Lata Mangeshkar's voice in his film 'Shaheed', calling it a 'thin voice', but then music director Ghulam Hyder asked Lata Mangeshkar to sing 'Mera Dil Toda, Kahin Ka Na' and the song was highly appreciated. At the same time, Lata Mangeshkar called Ghulam Haider her 'Godfather' in the interview.

Let us tell you that Lata Mangeshkar has sung songs in more than 1000 Hindi films and more than 36 languages since 1942, in almost 7 decades, and Lata Mangeshkar was also awarded 'Bharat Ratna' in 2001. Along with this, Lata has also been awarded the Padma Bhushan (1969), Padma Dada Saheb Phalke Award (1989), and Padma Vibhushan (1999).
