7th Mar, 2022

The Grand Finale of the popular singing reality show 'Sa Re Ga Ma' aired on Sunday. Neelanjana Ray emerged as the winner of the latest season of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. Singer Udit Narayan in the episode spoke about late legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar.

In the episode, Narayan was immensely impressed and had words of appreciation for every participant. But, it was contestant Rajashri Bag's beautiful rendition to Lata Mangeshkar's 'Tere Bina Jeeya Jaaye Na', 'Bhor Bhaye Panghat', 'Hothon Mein Aisi' and 'Meri Aawaz Hi' that reminded him of the legendary nightingale of India.

As a special request he asked the young singer to sing his favourite song 'Aawaz Do Humko' post her performance.

Remembering a few memories with Lata Mangeshkar, Narayan stated, "I feel blessed to have done more than 200 duets with her, along with a few stage shows. I remember in one of our concerts she requested the host to introduce me as the king of playback singing, and I can never forget that. I am sure I must have done something good to deserve that."

Remarking on Rajashri's performance, he told, "I watch this show at home, and I've seen people compare you (Rajashri) to Lata didi. At such a young age, your voice is a blessing. After hearing you sing live, I truly see an image of a singer within you. You are talented and this stage has surely honed your skills."
