New Delhi. Praising ‘Queen of Tones’ Lata Mangeshkar, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan shared an anecdote about how his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan used to describe Lata Mangeshkar.

Host of the quiz-based reality show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ Season 15, Big B started the episode by saying: “I, Amitabh Tej Bachchan, present another enlightening, rewarding and grand episode of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’. Ladies and gentlemen, this week all our episodes are dedicated to mothers. I pay my respects to them.”

In episode 36 of the show, Amitabh welcomed Deepak Sahajwani from Surat, Gujarat on the hot seat.

An audio question was asked to the contestant for Rs 5,000. The song ‘Piya Tose Naina Lage’ was played. The question was: Identify the singer of this song.

The options given were – Anuradha Paudwal, Lata Mangeshkar, Geeta Dutt and Alka Yagnik.

The correct answer was Lata Mangeshkar.

The ‘Don’ actor further added: “This song is from the film ‘Guide’. The composer is Sachin Dev Burman. The lyricist was Shailendra.”

The contestant said: “She was my mother’s favorite singer.”

Amitabh said, “Wonderful artiste.” I am not sure whether the current generation has heard this song or not. Lata ji has sung it very beautifully. As soon as the song starts, you know it is Lata ji.

The contestant said, “Sir, I still remember when I was at home. My mother loved listening to songs. Lata Mangeshkar was his favorite singer. Whenever I listen to Lata ji’s songs, I remember my mother.

On this, Big B said, ‘I once asked my father what he liked most about him. My father said, ‘Her voice is like flowing honey.’

“Once, I had to talk about them on a show, and I said, ‘Our neighboring countries, when they praise us, often say this, our country has everything you do, except two things, Taj Mahal and Lata Mangeshkar”.

28th September was the 94th birth anniversary of Lata Mangeshkar.
