Asha Bhosle is believed to have sung over 12,000 songs. Though her sister, Lata Mangeshkar was featured in the Guinness Book of World Records during 1974-1991, for having sung the most songs in the world, reputed sources have introduced concerns to its veracity, claiming that the Guinness counts were exaggerated and Bhosle has recorded more songs than Mangeshkar. Bhosle herself pointed out that she has sung the maximum recordings by any singer - 12,000.[4] The Guinness Book of Records (or in recent editions Guinness World Records, and in previous US editions Guinness Book of World Records) is a book published annually, containing an internationally recognized collection of superlatives: both in terms of human achievement and the extrema of the natural world. ...

Biography

Asha Bhosle was born in the small hamlet of Goar in Sangli, Maharashtra, into the musical Marathi family of Pandit Deenanath Mangeshkar. Her father was a theater actor and classical singer who had been born in the village of Mangeshi in Goa. When she was nine years old, her father died. The family moved from Pune to Kolhapur and then to Bombay. She and her elder sister Lata Mangeshkar began singing and acting in films to support their family. She sang her first film song Chala Chala Nav Bala for the Marathi movie Majha Bal (1943). The music for the film was composed by Datta Dawjekar.

At the age of 16, she eloped with 31-year old Ganpatrao Bhosle (1916-1966), marrying him against her family's wishes. Ganpatrao was sister Lata's personal secretary. The marriage failed miserably. Her husband and in-laws mistreated her. After a few years of marriage, Bhosle was turned out (around 1960) by a suspicious Ganpatrao[6] and she went to her maternal home with two children and pregnant with her third child, Anand. She continued to sing in films to earn money.


At that time, prominent playback singers like Geeta Dutt, Shamshad Begum and Lata Mangeshkar (her sister) monopolized the singing for the "heroine" roles and the big films. Asha Bhosle used to get the assignments they did not take: singing for the bad girls and vamps, or songs in the second-grade movies. In the 1950s, she sang more songs than any other playback singer in Bollywood, but most of these were in B or C-grade films. Her earliest songs were composed by A R Qureshi, Sajjad Hussain and Ghulam Mohammed, but none of these were hits.[5] Her songs in Dilip Kumar-starrer Sangdil (1952), composed by Sajjad Hussain, got her some recognition. Bimal Roy gave her a chance to sing in Parineeta (1953). Raj Kapoor also gave her chance to sing Nanhe munne bachche with Mohammed Rafi in Boot Polish (1954), which became very popular.

Rivalry with Lata Mangeshkar

Asha's sibling rivalry with her sister Lata Mangeshkar is often talked about, in spite of their insistence that these are just tales.[8] As young children, they were very close. As a child, Lata used to carry Asha all the time. They were so inseparable that when Lata went to school she would take Asha with her, but one day the teacher protested and said that they cannot have two students on one fee. Lata refused to return to school without Asha and quit her studies.[10] This article is about the human condition. ... Lata Mangeshkar (Marathi/Hindi:लता मंगेशकर) (born September 28, 1929) is an Indian singer. ...


Lata considered Asha's act of eloping with her lover as irresponsible, leaving her alone to sing and earn for the family. This led to tensions among them. Asha herself accepted in an interview[10] — "It was a love marriage and Lata didi (elder sister) did not speak to me for a long time. She disapproved of the alliance." It is a well-known fact that at one time, their relationship was very adversarial and there have been periods of non-communication.


In her initial days in the industry, Asha always played second fiddle to her elder sister. Some say that Lata had once said something criticising Asha's relationship with O P Nayyar. This widened the rift between the two sisters and O P Nayyar also decided that he would never work with Lata. O.P. Nayyar had once revealed — "Asha and Lata staying in opposite flats at Bombay's Peddar Road, shared a common maidservant. Now this maidservant had merely to come and tell the younger sister that Lata had just recorded something wonderful for Asha to lose her vocal poise. Such was her Lata phobia that it took me some months to convince Asha that she had a voice individualistic enough to evolve a singing style all of her own."[9] Asha once said that she has worked for years to create a voice and a style that was different from her Lata, so that she could carve her own niche and not be banished to live her shadow.[10] O. P. Nayyar was an Indian music director known for his peppy numbers. ...

Asha and Lata have sung many songs together. Their first duet was for the film Daman (1951).[9] Some of these include Man Bhawan Ke Ghar aye (Chori Chori, 1956), Sun ri sun papiha bole (Miss Mary, 1957), O chaand jahaan woh jaaye (Sharada, 1957), Mere Mehboob Mein Kya Nahi (Mere Mehboob, 1963), Ai kash kisi deewane ko (Aaye Din Bahar Ke, 1966), Main Chali Main Chali (Padosan, 1968), Chhap tilak sab (Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki, 1978), and Man kyun behka (Utsav, 1984). While singing, Lata used to hold her notebook in her right hand, while Asha held her notebook in her left hand. This meant Lata had her face away from Asha, making it difficult for them to "anticipate" each other.[10] Year 1951 (MCMLI) was a common year starting on Monday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...

The movie "Saaz", was supposedly based on Lata and Asha's rivalry. Asha said about the movie — "To have two women in long plaits, take a couple of incidents and exaggerate them into a 3-hour film is such a waste of time."[10] In last few years, Asha and Lata have often been seen in public, enjoying each other's company. In an interview with Times of India, Asha once said - "I remember, sometimes both of us would be at a function and some industry types would ignore me and interact only with her, as if to prove their loyalty.

Footnotes and references

  1. ^ Asha Bhosle has been credited variously as Asha, Asha Bhosle, Asha Bhonsale, Asha Bhonsle, Asha Bhonsley, Asha Bhosale and Asha Bhosley (See her IMDB entry for details). She is often referred to as Ashaji — the Hindi suffix ji denotes respect.
  2. ^ IMDB entry. IMDB. Retrieved on 2006-05-03.
  3. ^ Asha has been singing since the 1950s. Until now, however, record sales in India were never subjected to the sort of meticulous scrutiny and audit that occurs in America and Europe. So, it is very difficult to say precisely how many of Asha's records have been sold (ignoring how much has been pirated); rough estimates put the figure in the millions.
  4. ^ Many fans of Asha Bhosle say that she has sung over 20,000 songs. In an interview (Jyothi Venkatesh. Asha Bhosle: Sa Re Ga Ma…. Vashi2Panvel.com. Retrieved on 2006-05-03.), Asha Bhosle was asked "You must have sung around 25,000 songs till date". She replied, "no singer in the entire world can humanly sing 25,000 songs. In fact I would like to state humbly that I am the only singer who has sung the maximum number of songs — 12,000. If you sing one song a day, you can humanly sing 365 songs a year and 3650 songs in ten years. In around 60 years of my career I could sing 12,000 songs because there were times I had sung even four songs a day." In 1980s and 1990s, the Guinness Book of World Records mentioned the names of Lata Mangeshkar ("reportedly recorded not less than 25,000") and Mohammad Rafi ("claimed to have recorded 28,000 songs") for the record of "Most Recordings". However, it has been pointed out that Rafi recorded only 4,956 songs, and Lata Mangeshkar recorded only about 6,000 songs, while Asha Bhosle has recorded over 12,000 songs.
