The latest health update from Lata Mangeshkar’s team says, “We are as happy as you are to inform you that with all your prayers and best wishes, Lata didi is doing much better.”
There has been a state of concern around the country for Lata Mangeshkar and her family. The veteran Bollywood singer was admitted to the Breach Candy Hospital early Monday morning after she complained of breathing difficulties.
Hospital sources said the singer is showing “some signs of improvement but it will take time for her to recover”.
“She is showing some signs of improvement but it will take time for her to recover. She has pneumonia and chest infection. Any person suffering from it takes time to recover from it,” a hospital insider revealed to the PTI.
Lata Mangeshkar is expected to remain in the hospital for over a week. Her family members have requested fans and followers to give them some space. On Monday they had released a statement that revealed Mangeshkar’s infection adding that she is currently recovering. The statement also revealed that the family preferred to treat Lata Mangeshkar at home but admitted her to a hospital as the treatment there is more thorough.
The family pleaded with fans to not circulate rumors regarding Mangeshkar’s health.
In her over seven-decade career, Mangeshkar has sung more than 30,000 songs across languages.
She is considered one of the greatest playback singers in Indian cinema. She received the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honour, in 2001.
Mangeshkar’s last full Hindi album was for the late filmmaker Yash Chopra-directed 2004 film Veer-Zaara.
