Lata Mangeshkar captures yesteryear beauties in annual calendar

Mumbai, Dec.28 (ANI): Veteran Bollywood playback singer Lata Mangeshkar launched her annual calendar in Mumbai, which has a wide array of anecdotes about the leading actresses she has sung for.

Each month in the calendar 'Humsafar 2013' has a photograph of an actress Mangeshkar has worked with, besides a short paragraph on her experience with the actresses.

Mangeshkar, who appeared in public after a hiatus, humoured mediapersons and interacted with audiences, who have been eagerly awaiting her next album.

She wished for a great year ahead, full of prosperity and joy.

"2012 was not a good year for everyone. A lot of incidents took place, which caused a lot of sorrow. I hope that the coming year is auspicious for everyone and I pray to God that everyone succeeds," she told reporters.

Mangeshkar would launch her own music label L.M. Music, with an album of devotional songs in January 2013. She has sung along with her younger sibling Usha Mangeshkar for the new album.

The music of the album is composed by a young musician Mayuresh Pai. The company and the label was due to be launched on November 18 this year, but had to be postponed twice for reasons unknown. (ANI)
