Film
composer
AR
Rahman
on
Sunday
said
the
void
left
by
Lata
Mangeshkar’s
passing
will
be
difficult
to
fill
as
he
paid
homage
to
the
legendary
singer.

The
92-year-old
singer
breathed
her
last
around
8.12
am
at
south
Mumbai’s
Breach
Candy
Hospital,
where
she
was
being
treated
for
the
past
29
days.
She
was
admitted
to
the
hospital
after
testing
positive
for
coronavirus
with
mild
symptoms
on
January
8.

Rahman
was
among
those
rare
artistes
from
his
generation
who
had
the
opportunity
to
collaborate
with
the
singing
icon
not
once
but
thrice.
He
first
worked
with
Mangeshkar
for
the
track
‘Jiya
Jale’
from
the
1998
movie

Dil
Se

and
later
for
‘Ek
Tu
Hi
Bharosa’
from

Pukar

(2000).
Six
years
later,
the
veteran
singer
and
the
composer
worked
again
for
the
famous
track
‘Luka
Chuppi’
from
2006
Aamir
Khan-starrer

Rang
De
Basanti.

“Somebody
like
Lata
ji
is
not
just
a
singer
and
not
just
an
icon,
I
think
part
of
her
soul’s
consciousness
is
India.
India
is
Hindustani
music,
Urdu
poetry,
Hindi
poetry,
Bengali
and
so
many
other
languages,
and
this
void
is
going
to
remain
forever
for
all
of
us,” Rahman
said
in
a
statement.

The
55-year-old
music
director
further
said
he
is
mourning
her
death
even
though
Mangeshkar
leaves
behind
a
truly
iconic
collection
of
songs.

“Even
though
we
have
her
songs,
not
having
her
is
a
grief,
a
void
that
will
be
very
difficult
to
fill.
I
know
that
there
are
hundreds
and
thousands
of
singers
that
got
inspired
by
her
songs
and
are
still
singing
and
probably
taking
it
much
further
in
their
own
way,
but
still
I
think
the
impact,
the
foundation
of
it
along
with
the
generation
of
hers

Mohammed
Rafi
Saab,
Kishor
da,
Manna
Dey,
SD
Burman,
Salil
Chowdhury,
Naushad
Saab
and
all
those
legends

that’s
something
that
I
really
value
for
rest
of
my
life,” Rahman
added.

The
composer
said
that
he
will
continue
to
celebrate
the
veteran
singer’s
contribution
to
the
world
of
music
and
learn
from
“this
legend
who’s
left”.
Regarded
as
one
of
Indian
cinema’s
greatest
playback
singers,
Mangeshkar
was
the
voice
behind
memorable
tracks,
including
‘Ajeeb
dastan
hai
ye’,
‘Pyar
kiya
to
darna
kya’ and
‘Neela
aasman
so
gaya’.
