Mumbai: Anyone can become a singer or a superstar. Ranu Mondal became an overnight sensation after she sang Lata Mangeshkar’s song ‘Ek Pyaar Ka Nagma Hai’. She might have got an opportunity as a singer in the film industry but veteran singer Lata Mangeshkar has opinions on the same.

The one who gave the ‘nightingale of Ranaghat’ fame was Atindra Chakraborty who found her singing melodiously on Ranaghat station. Post this “Tera Suroor” singer Himesh Reshammiya recognized her talent and offered her a chance to sing in ‘Superstar singer’ reality show whose theme music composer is Himesh.
When Lata Mangeshkar, the original singer of ‘Ek Pyaar Ka Nagma Hai’ from Shor was asked on her views she said, “Agar mere naam aur kaam se kissiko bhala hota hai toh main apne-aap ko khush-kismat samajhti hoon (If anyone gets benefited from my name and work then I feel fortunate). But I also feel imitation is not a reliable and durable companion for success. By singing my songs or Kishoreda’s (Kumar), or (Mohd) Rafi Saab’s, or Mukesh Bhaiyya or Asha’s (Bhosle) numbers, aspiring singers can get short-term attention. “Be original. By all means sing the evergreen songs by me and my colleagues. But after a point the singer must seek and find his or her own song,”

Renu reacted on the comments in a very positive way. She gave the interview to Navbharat Times where she reported saying, “Lata ji ki umar ke hisab se mai choti thi, hu aur aage ja kar bhi rahungi.. Bachpan se unka awaz pasand hai. (As far age is concerned, I was younger to her and will always remain her junior. I have loved Lataji’s voice since childhood).”

Ranu recorded three songs for Himesh in Happy Hardy and Heer which is a Hindi romantic movie. The utmost favorite for the masses being ‘Teri Meri Kahani’.
