Asha Bhosle Turns 88: I feel Like I am 40!

The iconic singer has also started an initiative titled "Asha Ki Asha" where she will provide opportunities to new talent

Asha Bhosle is 88, but she says she feels like 40. The playback legend says she feels almost half her age because, she believes in speed and efficiency above anything else.

“I think it is my speed and efficiency. I want to do my best and do it with speed. For example, I cook really fast. Others exit the kitchen as they cannot match up with my speed (laughs). Ok, on a serious note, (I owe my) honesty to my music. Honesty is an integral part of me. It has brought me pain too, but in my 87 years I have always been honest in what I do, both at work and in life,” said the singer.

“I’ve completed my 87th and stepped into my 88th but I feel 40! Like me, I hope you all feel positive about life,” she posted on social media after her birthday this year.

Her birthday was a quiet affair with close family this year, owing to the global pandemic. “Under this Covid-19 situation, I have shot videos turning hairstylist, makeup woman and designer beside performer. I have enjoyed it to the hilt. I have cooked many dishes. I also spent my birthday with my grandchildren Zanai and Ranjai and my son Anand and daughter-in-law Anuja. I simply loved it.”
