Asha Bhosle is celebrating her 88th birthday. Asha Bhosle, who has mastered ghazals, bhajans, classical music, Qawwali, folk songs and pop, has a huge fan base across generations. The singer, who is still celebrated in the music world, has a career spanning over seven decades.
But in an interview, Asha Bhosle said that she is not interested in the songs of the new generation. Asha said that she doesn't listen to modern songs, and prefers evergreen numbers. Asha Bhosle added that she prefers the music of legends like 'Mehdi Hasan, Pandit Jasraj, and Bhimchand Joshi.
Asha says that she likes to listen to good music and therefore does not listen to modern songs. Asha was speaking in an interview with the Entertainment Times.
Asha Bhosle said that when listening to today's songs, it is not possible to identify whose voice it is. She added that the development of technology in the music world has come so far.
“Yes, even I have to ask the youth around me that who's singing. Technology may have increased, but the soul is absent. I remember, we did so much improvisation on what we were told to do- and ended up only enhancing the numbers. We worked very hard. We always thought that the song that I'm singing should not be my last song;” said Asha Bhosle.
In the interview, she also criticized the recent reality shows as well. Asha added “I have been to such shows. People must realise that singing is not about short clothes or being dramatic. Gaana gaane se zyada acting hoti rehti hai (There's more acting than singing on these shows)!”
