Lata Mangeshkar is a name that will not be forgotten or rewritten for generations to come. Her death broke a million hearts globally. She breathed her last on February 6, after succumbing to COVID-19 complications and other terminal illnesses.

Her glorious music career spanning over eight decades is proof that she was an incredible artist and even more great woman. 


As part of tributes by fans, many of her old performances, interviews, and appearances started doing rounds on social media. 

Among all the tributes and throwback videos, there is one that grabbed the attention of many. The video is a part of her interview with poet, lyricist, and writer Javed Akhtar. In one of the interview segments, Lata Mangeshkar was asked about rebirth, and she laughed.

Sharing her take on the same, she said, 

 “Naa hi janam miley toh acha hain aur agar wakayi janam mila mujhe toh main Lata Mangeshkar banna nahi chahungi. Lata Mangeshkar ki jo taqleefein hain wo usko hi pata hain.” 

(Translation: I don’t want to be reborn again. But if I do, I don’t want to be reborn as Lata Mangeshkar. Lata Mangeshkar’s problems are known by none but herself.) 

The video resurfaced on the internet and got widely shared. What fans love the most is how Lata chuckles while talking about herself.
