  • Legendary singer Asha Bhosle regrets not getting a proper education and says she would have touched greater heights if she had studied further and crooned songs in English too.

Bhosle talked about her regrets at the Leadership Lecture Series at the Dubai campus of the Global Indian International School (GIIS) on Tuesday, read a statement.

Asked about her message for the young generation, she said: “A person is responsible for his own success. The one who works hard day and night and keeps doing his work, he will always be successful. And for your school, the message that I have is, I haven’t studied much and today when I go abroad, when I go to America or London, I really regret after listening to their songs, I feel bad that I can’t get that accent.”

The legendary singer Asha Bhosle added: “I really wish that I had studied more but back in those times, in my generation, 80 years back, there was no use of educating women, they said women are supposed to do simple household chores, deliver babies, why make her study.

“So, the education never happened. And now I really regret that if we were made to study or given our education, then we would have been at different heights in our life and I would have gone way ahead in English songs because our style and English words would have taken me to greater heights.”

Asha Bhosle is one of the most versatile singers to have been associated with Bollywood. From cabaret to ghazals — she has sung songs like “Jhumka gira re”, “Dum maro dum”, “Chura liya”, “Mehbooba mehbooba”, “Mera kuch saaman”, “Dil cheez kya hai” to “Prem mein tohre”.

From Zeenat Aman to Urmila Matondkar and Rekha to Vidya Balan — Bhosle has lent her voice for actresses of different generations over six decades and has managed to stay relevant by adapting to new styles and singing techniques.(IANS)

Actress Vidya Balan-starrer “Tumhari Sulu” will soon air on the small screen, and its director Suresh Triveni believes that due to the television premiere of the film, more housewives will feel connected to its protagonist — a housewife and radio jockey.

“I think with the television release (premiere) of the film, the story will reach out to a huge audience who usually do not go to theatres, especially middle-aged housewives…who missed out the shows, will now watch it on TV.

“I am hopeful that they will enjoy the film to know that not only in daily soaps but also in mainstream Bollywood, they have their representation…It will connect them emotionally,” Triveni told IANS here.

Being a fan of Vidya, he said: “I wrote the story keeping Vidya in mind and I knew that she is the one to pull it off with her performance. Having said that, I was not sure of how much the audience would accept it.

“Yes, I am an eternal optimist and knew that if the audience feels connected to the story, they will celebrate it. Well, we are thankful that the audience accepted it.”

Asked how he looks at the change in new-age Bollywood where the story of a middle-class household is coming out more and more, the director said: “I think we are categorising them more than that of our early days of Indian cinema because there was always a well-balanced existence of Manmohan Desai and Hrishikesh Mukherjee in our Hindi films.”

“I think these days, thanks to media, we are talking more about these films. We always have an audience to appreciate such films, there was no dearth.”

“Tumhari Sulu” will be aired on Sony MAX on Sunday. (Bollywood Country)
