September 8, 2021: It is the birthday of Asha Bhosle and the veteran singer turns 88 today. In her long and equally fulfilling musical career, the singer has garnered much admiration and success. The singer hails from the famous Mangeshkar family and the world is blessed to have her magical voice. From tape records to Spotify, the singer’s presence has been nothing short of legend.


Birthday of Asha Bhosle: The singer turns 88

A career of seven decades and still an on-going wish to sing live, that’s Asha Bhosle for you. Bhosle’s career started in 1943 and has done playback singing for over a thousand movies. In addition, she has recorded several private albums and participated in numerous solo concerts in India and abroad. The versatile singer has recorded in many styles and in over 20 Indian languages in her career.

Bhosle’s maiden name Mangeshkar comes from her famous musical family, the Mangeshkar’s. Born in 1933, Asha was the middle child of actor and classical singer Deenanath Mangeshkar.

She and her elder sister Lata Mangeshkar began singing and acting in films to support their family. She sang her first film song Chala Chala Nav Bala for the Marathi film Majha Bal (1943). Her first solo Hindi film song was for the movie Raat Ki Raani (1949).

After a series of low-budget movies, O. P. Nayyar gave Asha a break in C.I.D. (1956) and this changed the course for her career. Gradually, she established her status and received the patronage of composers like Sachin Dev Burman and Ravi.


Her marriages and a knack for cooking

At the age of 16, she eloped with 31-year-old Ganpatrao Bhosle, marrying him against her family’s wishes and has three children with him before their separation.

Asha married composer Rahul Dev Burman in 1980.

Asha is an excellent cook and cooking is her favorite hobby. She has several restaurants called Asha’s in Dubai, Kuwait, Doha, Birmingham and a score of other locations.

Chhod Do Aanchal


Haal Kaisa Jai Janaab Ka

Aaiye Meherban


Arre Ja Re Hat Natkhat


Abhi Na Jao Chod Kar

Nazar Lagi Raja Tore Bangle Par

Yeh Reshmi Zulfon Ka Andhera


Koi Sheheri Babu


Aaja Aaja

 Ek Pardesi Mera Dil Le Gaya


 Ude Jab Jab Zulfen Teri

 Tu Tu Hai Wohi


 Jhumka gira re


 Dum Maaro Dum

 Kajra Mohabbat Wala

 Raat akeli hai

 Parde mein rehne do

 Piya tu ab to aaja


 Aao na gale lagao na

 Ye mera dil

 Hungama Ho Gaya


 Jab Chhaye mera jadoo

 In aankhon ki masti ke

 Jawani jaaneman


 Mera kuchh saamaan

 Chura Liya Hai Tumne

 Sajna Hai Mujhe Sajna Ke Liye

 Pyaar Karnewale


 Piya Bawri

 Dil Cheez Kya Hai


 Dekha Teri Mast Nigahon Mein

 Mann Kyon

 Tanha Tanha

 Kahin Aag Lage

 Radha Kaise Na Jale

 Betain Na Betain Raina

 Pyaar Mein Dil Pe Maar De Goli


 Aaj Rapat Jaayen To

 Ek Aankh Marun Toh


 Rangeela Re

 Nahin Nahin Koi Tumsa Haseen

 Cham Cham Barse

 Dhal Gaya Din Ho Gayi Sham


 Raat Chup Hai Chandni Madhosh Hai

 Mujhe Rang De

 Sharara Sharara

 Janam Samjha Karo


 Hone Lagi Hain Raat

 Jab Samne Tum Aa Jate ho
