Legendary singer Asha Bhonsle is planning to write an autobiography.

"The book will contain my life story spanning over more than six decades," the 70-year-old veteran told reporters here.

"The preliminary draft is ready. I have written it completely in either Marathi or Hindi. My son has promised to translate it in English,"she said yesterday.

To a question on when her fans would get to read the book, Asha said "Let me get a little more older."

Asha, one of the well-known Mangeshkar sisters, was born on September 8, 1933. Daughter of versatile actor and singer Dinanath Mangeshkar, Asha, like her other sisters and brother was introduced to music at a very tender age.

Reputed to have sung over 20,000 songs in more than 14 languages, Asha's inimitable style of singing has no match in the film music scene.
