Lata Mangeshkar 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
Mangeshkar was born in a Maharashtrian Brahmin family in 1929, the eldest daughter of Deenanath Mangeshkar, a Marathi and Konkani musician, and his wife Shevanti[ in Indore (in the present-day Indore district of Madhya Pradesh and then the capital of the princely state of Indore which was part of the Central India Agency in British India).
Her father, Deenanath Mangeshkar, was a classical singer and theatre actor.
Her mother, Shevanti (later renamed Shudhamati), a Gujarati woman from Thalner, Bombay Presidency (now in northwest Maharashtra), was Deenanath’s second wife; his first wife Narmada, who had died, was Shevanti’s older sister.
Her paternal grandfather, Ganesh Bhatt Navathe Hardikar (Abhisheki), was a priest who performed the abhishekam of the Shiva lingam at the Mangueshi Temple in Goa. Her paternal grandmother, Yesubai Rane, was from Goa.
Her maternal grandfather, Seth Haridas Ramdas Lad, was from Gujarat, a prosperous businessman and landlord of Thalner. She learned Gujarati folk songs such as garbas of Pavagadh from her maternal grandmother.
Deenanath adopted the surname Mangeshkar in order to identify his family with his native town of Mangeshi, Goa. Lata was named “Hema” at her birth. Her parents later renamed her Lata after a female character, Latika, in one of her father’s plays, भाव बंधन.
She was the eldest child in the family. Meena, Asha, Usha, and Hridaynath, in birth order, are her siblings; all are accomplished singers and musicians.
She received her first music lesson from her father. At the age of five, she started to work as an actress in her father’s musical plays (Sangeet Natak in Marathi).
On her first day of school, Mangeshkar left because she was not allowed to bring her sister Asha along with her.
She owned a Mercedes Benz car.
Her hobbies were watching cricket and riding bicycles.
Lata made her first public performance in 1938 at Nutan Theatre, Solapur. She sang Raag Khambavati and 2 Marathi songs.
When Dilip Kumar pointed towards her Maharashtrian accent while singing the Urdu songs, she went to an Urdu teacher, Shafi, to take lessons in Urdu.
Lata was the oldest winner of the National Film Award in the category of Best Female Playback Singer for “Lekin.”
She had sung a total of 712 songs for Laxmikant Pyarelal. It is the highest number of songs she has ever recorded for someone.
In 1984, Madhya Pradesh Government introduced “Lata Mangeshkar Award,” which was followed by Maharashtra Government in 1992.
Lata took music lessons from Deenanath Mangeshkar (father), Ustad Amanat Ali Khan, Amanat Khan, Devaswale, Ghulam Haidar and Pandit Tulsidas Sharma.
During her initial days in singing, Lata imitated the singer, Noor Jehan. However, later she developed her own style.
She was bed-ridden for about 3 months after having received slow poison from some mysterious source. However, she survived.
Mangeshkar was fondly referred to as the Nightingale of India.
Meeting K.L. Saigal and singing for Dilip Kumar had been her unfulfilled desires.
Lata hated wearing any makeup.
Mangeshkar had sung more than 50,000 songs in 36 different languages.
Lata monopolized the Filmfare awards for the Best Playback Singer from 1958 to 1966. She ended this in 1969, by giving up Filmfare awards in order to promote fresh talents.
