Mumbai, Sep 8: Melody queen Lata Mangeshkar gave her blessings to younger sister Asha Bhosle as she turned 82 today (born on September 8, 1933). The 86-year-old veteran singer shared a sweet post on Twitter, wishing Asha Bhosle on her birthday. “Namaskar. Aaj meri choti behen Asha Bhosle ka Janamdin hai. Main usko shubh aashirwad deti hun. Ishwar usko hamesha khush rakhe (Today is my younger sister Asha Bhosle’s birthday. I give my blessings to her. May God always keep her happy),” she wrote.
