When Lata Mangeshkar got offended by Dilip Kumar and didn’t speak to him for 13 years
Nightingale of India, late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. So much so that the Queen of Melody would also tie rakhi to the latter. She was among the close ones who visited the late actor during his last days. But do you know the reason why their relation had gone sour, as a result of which they did not speak for 13 long years?
The story dates back to the time when Lata Mangeshkar was to sing ‘Laagin Naahi Chhute’ for the film Musafir, in 1957. At that time, Kumar told music composer Anil Biswas, “The Urdu of Marathis (Maharashtrians) is like dal and rice.” This offended the veteran singer, after which she decided to hone her Urdu speaking skills.
After 13 years when they met in 1970, the veteran singer remarked, “You know, Yusuf saab, I’d always heard you loathed me for being one up on you while recording the Laagi Naahin Chhute Rama duet with you in Musafir. But I only sang the way I can’t help singing any number.”
To this, Kumar gleefully asserted, “It’s precisely because you can’t help singing the way you do that my family and I adore you! How possibly could I loathe a voice so heavenly!”
On February 6, 2022, due to COVID-induced prolonged illness, the illustrious singer passed away in Mumbai.

After cops intensify security at Nagpur’s RSS amid reported PFI threats, Centre bans PFI
After two rounds of nationwide raids and arrests of over 240 members of Popular Front Of India (PFI) in a week, the Centre banned the outfit for five years over alleged terror activities late last night
The Ministry go Home Affairs said the Popular Front of India (PFI) and its associates or affiliates or fronts were found to be involved in serious offences, including terrorism and its financing, targeted gruesome killings, disregarding the constitutional set up of the country, disturbing public order etc. which are prejudicial to the integrity, security and sovereignty of the country.
Therefore, the Ministry of Home Affairs said it was necessary to curb the nefarious activities of the organisation and hence declared the Popular Front of India (PFI) along with its associates or affiliates or fronts including Rehab India Foundation (RIF), Campus Front of India (CFI), All India Imams Council (AIIC), National Confederation of Human Rights Organization (NCHRO), National Women’s Front, Junior Front, Empower India Foundation and Rehab Foundation, Kerala as an ‘unlawful association’ under the provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.
The move came a day after Nagpur Police, on Tuesday, tightened security at Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) headquarters in Nagpur headquarters amid alleged threats from PFI. However, Police Commissioner of Nagpur Amitesh Kumar said that the beefed up security had no link with the nationwide crackdown on PFI and its workers.
The Anti Terrorism Squad (ATI) of Maharashtra Police had revealed that some of the recently arrested PFI members had conducted a recce of the RSS previously. In the wake of this, Kumar had said the RSS headquarters security was their top priority as it was a vital installation.
