We have playfully flirted with her voice, serenaded to her songs and even seduced with her numbers. Bollywood singer Asha Bhosle who celebrates her 83rd birthday on Thursday, has also been the voice we often choose when in melancholy when we need a change from the legendary Rafi-Mukesh playlists.

From crooning classical numbers to teaming up with western artists Boy George and Michael Stipe, Asha is one versatile singer who has done it all.

In this file photo from July, Asha poses with Ashwarya Rai Bachchan, whom she bumped into while they in New York. (Twitter)
