Interview With Asha - A day After

ating me. From the moment Pancham died I'm being stabbed in the back. My marriage has become a household topic, it is being turned into a scandal. If I was a 16 year old I could have taken the abuses and the accusations in my stride. But with my children and grandchildren around the publicity has been disturbing.

What has promped the accusation that you weren't married to R.D.Burman?

Search me. People talk, it's not possible for me to shut everyone's mouth. But I'm terribly unahppy... I'm upset.. that circumstances after his death have forced me to display my marriage certificate. We didn't want to make a hungama of our marriage. At our age, the groom couldn't have possibly come astride a horse with a lot of band baaja. We couldn't have possibly hosted a big reception at the Taj Mahal Hotel. Pancham and I were no coy, young couple. So we had a very quiet ceremony, we had an Arya Samaj wedding and also a civil registrar marriage. Thank God!! I have the marraige certificate with me now. Our close friends and family members - Gogi Anand, Ramesh Behl, Sapan Chakroborty, Badal Bhattacharya, my bhabhi Bharati and didi Lata Mangeshkar and my secretary Babubhai were all there.

Why didn't you change your name to Mrs.Burman then?

He dissuaded me from changing my name. He said that Asha Bhosle had been very lucky for me. He pointed out that Geeta Roy's career had nose dived once she took on the name of Geeta Dutt.

Didn't Lata didi dissuade you from marrying R.D.Burman?

Not at all. We Mangeshkars follow the policy of non-interference. We're there if we need one another.

What made you opt for a second marriage?

I wanted to stop tongues .....
