Career

Mangeshkar sang her first song, Naachu Yaa Gade, Khelu Saari Mani Haus Bhaari for the Marathi film, Kitni Hasaal in 1942. However, the song was dropped from the final cut. She played a minor role in Navyug Chitrapat’s Marathi movie Pahili Mangalaa-gaur, in which she also made her singing debut with Natali Chaitraachi Navalaai. In 1943, she sang her first Hindi song Mata Ek Sapoot Ki Duniya Badal De Tu” for the Marathi film Gajaabhaau.

She moved to Mumbai in 1945 and started taking classical music lessons from Ustad Amanat Ali Khan. Lata, along with her sister Asha played small roles in Vinayak’s first Hindi movie, Badi Maa (1945). In Badi Maa, she also sang a bhajan, Maata Tere Charnon Mein.

In her initial days, she faced many rejections as the composers found her voice too thin, to which Ghulam Haider replied, in coming years producers and directors would fall at Lata’s feet and “beg her” to sing in their movies. It was later under the guidance of Ghulam Haider that Mangeshkar received her breakthrough Dil Mera Toda, Mujhe Kahin Ka Na Chhora from the movie Majboor (1948). At that moment she declared Haider as his Godfather.

Mangeshkar gained a lot of popularity after singing Ayega Anewala presented on-screen by actress Madhubala in the film Mahal. It was the turning point in her life as she started to get work from all the leading music directors of that time. She did playback singing for directors like S. D. Burman, Salil Chowdhury, Naushad, Shankar Jaikishan, Madan Mohan, Kalyanki-Anandji, Khayyam, and Pandit Amarnath Husanlal Bhagat Ram.

During the 1950s, Lata sang for successful films like Mother India, Devdas, and Chori Chori and also won her first Filmfare for the Best Female Playback singer for the song Aaja Re Pardesi from the film Madhumati.

She sang songs of different genres for several music directors. From westernised songs like Ajeeb Dastan Hain Yeh to Ragas like Mohe Bhool Gaye Saawariya and Bhajans like Allah Tero Naam, she did justice to all of them. In the 1960s, Lata was the voice behind the most glamorous actresses of that time. On 27 January 1963, Mangeshkar moved dignitaries like Jawaharlal Nehru, the then Prime Minister of India, to tears with her rendition of the patriotic song, Ae Mere Watan Ke Logon during the Sino-Indian War.

Lata collaborated with prominent male playback singers like Kishore Kumar, Hemant Kumar, Mukesh, Mahendra Kapoor, Manna Dey, and Mohammed Rafi for various songs. Her duets with Kishore Kumar like Kora Kagaz, Tere Bina Zindagi Se and Aap Ki Aakhon Me spelt some unforgettable musical magic.

Apart from singing, she also composed music for Marathi movies, Ram Ram Pavane, Maratha Tituka Melvana, Mohityanchi Manjula, Sadhi Manase, and Tambadi Mati. Lata has also produced three Hindi films namely, Jhaanjhar (1953), Kanchan (1955), Lekin (1990), and one Marathi film titled Vaadal (1953).

In the 1990s, she gradually reduced the volume of her work owing to health issues and singing only selective songs.
