Lata Mangeshkar to release memoir penned by sister Meena Mangeshkar
On her 90th birthday, legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar will be releasing the Hindi translation of her sister Meena Mangeshkar-Khadikar's memoir.
The book, titled "Didi Aur Main", will be released by Lata Mangeshkar on September 29, a day after her birthday, at her residence here. The memoir is a translation of Marathi book "Mothi Tichi Saavli", which released last year.
It traverses Meena Mangeshkar's journey from Lata Mangeshkar's struggles to her raging success. It is replete with first-hand information and anecdotes from Lata Mangeshkar's 70-year-long musical career.
"The book ('Didi Aur Main') is my gift to Didi on her 90th birthday. I have tried my best to coalesce into this book the bittersweet memories of the Mangeshkar family," said Meena Mangeshkar said in a statement.
The memoir also features candid pictures of the Mangeshkar family and a foreword by megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
