‘Queen Of Melody’ Lata Mangeshkar Reportedly Hospitalised

Veteran singing legend Lata Mangeshkar was taken to Breach Candy Hospital at around 1:30 am on Monday morning reported The Hindu.

She was rushed after she mentioned some difficulties in breathing. Sources at The Hindu added that the singer was under the treatment of senior medical advisor and physician Dr Farokh E Udwadia.

"She was brought to hospital at about 2 am. She is critical and in ICU," a hospital insider told PTI.

Mangeshkar, who has lent her voice to over 1,000 songs in Hindi alone, recently celebrated her 90th birthday, on 28 September.

There were rumours of her ill-health and breathing difficulties last year in December 2018 where it was reported that she was hospitalised for the same. But Mangeshkar rubbished these with a tweet saying she was, “ absolutely healthy and at home.”

This is a developing story and FIT will update the copy once more details emerge.
