Asha Bhosle to Reveal Secrets of Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar at her Concert in Dubai?
The eternal diva Asha Bhosle gives us glimpses of her life ahead of ‘I Am Asha’ her concert to be held in Dubai
If you are an Asha Bhosle fan and have always wondered how she remains so young at 80 and renders these amazing songs, we can let in on her secret: the magic trick she employs is to have yoghurt and tamarind every day.
“I do my riyaaz regularly. It is essential to begin your riyaaz with an Om, it becomes very powerful. I then have a dose of yogurt and tamarind which are useful to maintain the quality of your voice,” said Asha who was in Dubai to announce her concert I Am Asha.
The concert will be like a musical dialogue where she will take fans through her amazing journey with songs and conversations with the audience. Giving her company on stage will be veteran actor Farooque Shaikh who will moderate the evening.
“It is a huge challenge,” said Shaikh, “How do you encapsulate the journey of someone who has over 12000 songs to her credit? What songs do we select and what do we leave out?”
Asha herself said she was keen to get audiences introduced to the unknown aspects of performers who had influenced her. “Most people know him as a very jovial person but he had a serious side to him as well. Similarly my sister Lata Mangeshkar is known to be serious but she is actually a lot of fun and loves to crack a joke.”
The legend said that the dialogue will be about people who have defined and shaped her life over the 70 years.
The concert, organised by Ccreans Communications, will be held December 13, 2013 at World Trade Centre.
