The Nightingale of Asia Lata Mangeshkar doesn’t see too many films any more. But she did catch glimpses of Boney Kapoor’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor’s debut film Dhadak and of Anil Kapoor’s homage to Lataji in Fanney Khan. And Lataji is all praise for the two. “Boney and Anil are both very close to us Mangeshkars. I had even attended Anil’s engagement to Sunita, though I couldn’t attend his wedding. I am so glad his daughter Sonam is married and is doing some really good work too. There was a time when actresses had to slow down after marriage. Thankfully those days are over. As a working woman—and I’ve been working since the age of 12—it would be completely unacceptable for me to give up my career after marriage.”
