Today marks the 41st death anniversary of the legendary music composer, Madan Mohan. Lata Mangeshkar, who was the voice behind many of his timeless compositions, took to Twitter to pay her ode to the musician. The celebrated singer even shared one of her special songs with the composer.
Madan Mohan was called the Prince Of Ghazals, as he had composed some of the most memorable ghazals in Bollywood. Talat Mahmood, Mohammad Rafi and Mangeshkar were his favourites and he lost no opportunity to work with them.
Take a look at 5 of his best compositions sung by Lata Mangeshkar:
