Melody queen Lata Mangeshkar paid tribute to veteran musician R Burman on his 22nd death anniversary, saying his music will always be cherished.
Burman, who was married to Mangeshkar’s sister Asha Bhosle, collaborated with both the sisters and gave many chart topping numbers.
“Today is R D Burman’s (Pancham) 22nd death anniversary. Pancham’s music and memories are alive even today and I am sure his music will continue to spread magic in future too. My heartfelt tribute to Pancham,” Mangeshkar tweeted.
The 85-year-old singer teamed up with Burman on songs like “Aaja Piya Tohe Pyar Doon”, “Agar Tum Na Hote”, “Mere Naina Sawan Bhadon”, “Raina Beeti Jaye”, “Tujhse Naraz Nahin Zindagi” among others.
Burman died on January 4, 1994. His last work was seen in “1942: A Love Story”, which released after his demise.
