Aisa hi eik rishtey ka naam hai Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar,” he said.
“For over eight years, your voice has created magic in people’s lives…. Aapka gaana sunke aise lagta hai ki man apne aap band kamre se niklke aapki awaaz ke saath chal rha hai aur fir lautke usi dhun me rehta hai. Lataji aapke suro ke bina sangeet adhoora hai (Music is incomplete without your voice),” he added.
