Lata Mangeshkar was mentored by Master Vinayak, a 1930s director, and Ghulam Haider after she went to Mumbai. She then had a particular bond with composer Madan Mohan, with whom she wrote some of her most memorable songs. “With Madan Mohan, I had a particular bond that went beyond that of a singer and a music composer. “This was a brother-sister relationship,” she later explained, citing Jahan Ara’s “Woh chup rahe” as their favourite duet.

Dhool Ka Phool, Kabhi Kabhie, Silsila, and Dil Toh Pagal Hai were among her hits with Yash Chopra. On Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge, she collaborated alongside Chopra’s son Aditya. “None have been able to rival Lata’s sophistication,” Dilip Kumar, whom she addresses as her older brother, added.
