Ranu Mondal shot to fame after she sang Lata Mangeshkar’s Ek Pyaar Ka Nagma Hai song and the video went viral for obvious reasons. Read on…
Lata Mangeshkar is known as Asia’s nightingale and has been the constant source of inspiration for countless aspiring singers of our country. The living legend has sung more than thousand songs in different languages and has been the most successful Indian singer easily.
Recently, Ranu Mondal who shot to fame after her video went viral where she sang her version of ‘Ek Pyaar Ka Nagma Hai’ which was originally sung by Lata herself. She later got the opportunity to sing two songs in one of Himesh Reshammiya‘s upcoming film where the offer was made by the music composer himself. This led to even more glory and exposure to the downtrodden woman who used to sing on the streets.
Even rumors of Salman Khan gifting her a 50 lakh bungalow was making news all over till the actor himself out an end to the rumors by putting a full stop to them and called them null & void. When the living legend was asked about Ranu’s journey, she said,
“Agar mere naam aur kaam se kissiko bhala hota hai toh main apne-aap ko khush-kismat samajhti hoon (If anyone gets benefited from my name and work then I feel fortunate).”
“But I also feel imitation is not a reliable and durable companion for success. By singing my songs or Kishore da’s (Kumar), or (Mohd) Rafi Saab’s, or Mukesh bhaiyya or Asha’s (Bhosle) numbers, aspiring singers can get short-term attention.”
“But it won’t last,” continued Lataji.
“So many children sing my songs so beautifully. But how many of them are remembered after the first flush of success? I only know of Sunidhi Chauhan and Shreya Ghoshal.”
She said, “Be original. By all means sing the evergreen songs by me and my colleagues. But after a point the singer must seek and find his or her own song.”
“If Asha (Bhosle) had not insisted on singing in her own style, she would have remained in my shadow forever. She is the biggest example of how far individuality can take one’s talent to,” concluded the veteran singer.
Well, we cant agree more with her and believe that she is extremely right in her take, What is your opinion on the same?
