Speaking about Asha Bhosle’s reaction, the actor said, “She is broken down.” Padmini also spoke about Lata’s love for TV and told, “Even recently when I went and met her a couple of times, she was glued to the television set, would watch reality shows and was a great fan of many of them. She was in tune with what’s going on.”
Padmini also revealed how her son, actor Priyaank Sharma reacted when he first learnt that he is related to Lata Mangeshkar, “He couldn’t believe it. He was like ‘Is she my aaji (grandmother)’? He was ecstatic.”
Lata Mangeshkar passed away at the age of 92 at the Breach Candy Hospital, Mumbai owing to multiple organ failures. The legendary singer was cremated with full state honours at the Shivaji Park, Mumbai.
