Your sister is the irreplacable part of your life as you have together walked the crucial phase of childhood. You have seen each other in the worst and the best times. You have laughed with each other until dawn, and you have shared millions of stories with her. She knows all your weaknesses and never hesitates 'twice' to take advantage of them.and never hesitates 'twice' to take advantage of it. Your sister is the only person, who knows how to put you on the pedestal and get you down from it. And singing maestro, Asha Bhosle shares an exactly similar relationship with her sister, Lata Mangeshkar.

Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar have been undisputed queens of melodies for many decades. They share a beautiful bond with each other. We remember how once Lata ji used to take her younger sister, Asha to school with her, but when the teacher had objected, she had decided to quit her studies. Lata ji had started working at the age of 14 when her father had passed away and there was no turning back since then.
On September 28, 2020, Lata Mangeshkar celebrated her 91th birthday, and her sister, Asha Bhosle penned a lovely wish for her. She posted a throwback monochrome picture with her, and wrote, "Birthday Greetings to Lata Didi who is 91 today. Remembering our childhood days thru this picture where Didi can be seen seated left and Meena Tai and I are seen standing behind her." Check it out below:
On September 8, 2020, Lata ji had taken to her Instagram handle to wish her little sister, Asha Bhosle. The doting sister had shared a beautiful monochrome picture with her sister, Asha ji from one of the award functions. In the picture, the sister duo was looking beautiful in their traditional attires. Alongside it, Lata ji had written, "Namaskar. Aaj meri choti behen Asha Bhosle ka janamdin hai.Asha apne aap mein ek bahut badi gayika hai.uska naam saari duniyaa jaanti hain. Main usko aashirwad deti hun ki wo aisehi gaati rahe aur hamesha khush rahe." (Also Read: Daddy, Arjun Rampal Tries To Explain Something To Son, Arik, Mommy, Gabriella Shares A Glimpse)
In an interview with India Today, Asha Bhosle had talked about her sister, Lata Mangeshkar. She had said, "She is older by four years, she is like my mother. We have kept our professions separate from family life." Asha ji had also addressed the rivalry question, and had stated, "What are we talking about? Seniority or numbers? What she can do, I might not be able to. What I did, she can't. It is like two people who went to the moon: the person who took the first step got all the acclaim. It was a healthy competition. I always wanted to do better, that zid has made me what I am today."
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Lata Mangeshkar had talked about her differences with Asha Bhosle. She had refuted all such claims and had said, “This talk of our differences has been blown out of all proportions over the years. We are sisters first and foremost, and forever. We were never rivals as singers. What Asha can do before the mike I can never do. I can never sing Piya tu ab to aaja or Chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko the way she can. My point is, we had our own individual space as singers. Why would we be seen as rivals? Yeh bilkul galat hai.” (Don't Miss: Kapil Sharma Showers Love On His 'Laado', Anayra Sharma, Little One Shows Off Her Swag In Sunglasses)
