Lata to grace STAR reality show
Singer Lata Mangeshkar has reportedly agreed to be present at the grand finale of Voice Of India on November 24.
Though she has expressed displeasure about the quality of music contests on TV, melody queen Lata Mangeshkar has reluctantly agreed to be present at the grand finale of STAR Plus's Voice Of India show on November 24.
The show's producer-director Gajendra Singh couldn't contain his excitement.
Interestingly, Lataji's sister Asha Bhosle served as the guest judge on the rival music contest show - Zee TV's Hero Honda Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge a few months ago.
"But Lataji coming on our show isn't something we planned after Ashaji came on the other show," protested Singh. "We've been trying to persuade her for years to come on our show. This time she has finally agreed."
She met the Voice Of India finalists at her residence during the Ganesh Mahotsav.
"Her advice to the contestants was not to copy any of the established voices. She has always said it's relatively easy to sing popular numbers, much harder to sing original numbers," said Singh. Seven years ago Lata co-produced STAR's Meri Awaaz Suno.
