Lata Mangeshkar recently took to Twitter to share an experience she had with a beggar at Juhu Circle. She recently wrote about seeing him at a signal and offering him money.
However, the beggar turned down her offer, and asked if she was Lata Mangeshkar.

The singer added, “
Maine unhe haan kaha tab unhone mujhe badi duaien dete hue paise lene se mana kiya aur kaha ki
ji main aap ke gaano’n ka bohot bada aashiq hun.allah kare aap ki
saal ki umr ho aur aap hamesha khush rahein.unki baatein sunke laga ki ye kafi acche ghar ka insaan hai magar shayad haalat thik nahi hai. Is waqt Mujhe mera gaya hua ek gaana yaad aaraha hai.
(sic)” (When I said yes, he blessed me, refused the money and said that he’s a huge fan of my songs. He prayed that God blesses me with a long life and happiness. Hearing him talk, I thought he was from a good family, but was facing difficulties. At that time, I recalled one of my songs). The song is Bekas pe from Mughal-e-Azam (1960).
