Aishwarya Rai and Hannah Waddingham of Ted Lasso pay a heartfelt homage to Lata Mangeshkar: 'With heartfelt appreciation,' says the author.
On social media, actresses Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Hannah Waddingham paid respect to Lata Mangeshkar. At the age of 92, the iconic vocalist died of multi-organ failure. She is known as 'India's Nightingale,' and she has a long and illustrious history.
On Sunday, she was laid to rest in the presence of dignitaries from throughout India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also paid her tribute by flying down to Mumbai.
Aishwarya shared a photograph of Lata on Instagram and wrote, “At a loss for words… 💔✨🙏Prayers for your Divine Soul to Rest in Peace, Lataji… God Bless 🙏✨ In absolute gratitude for you… and all your Blessings… Eternally…✨.”
"Rest in peace #LataMangeshkar," Hannah Waddingham, who played Ted Lasso, posted on Twitter. "Bollywood's original, magical, and gorgeous songbird." Many Indian fans reacted positively to her message, expressing their delight that she recognises how important Lata is to her fans.
Lata has sung some of the most famous Hindi songs with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, including Humko Humise Chura Lo and Aankhein Khuli from Mohabbatein (2000), which she co-wrote with Udit Narayan. Shah Rukh Khan, who attended Lata's funeral on Sunday, appeared in the Aishwarya Rai film. While paying his tributes to the renowned musician, the actor was spotted offering a dua and a flower wreath. Fans were moved by Khan's gesture, which they saw as proof of India's diversity.
Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's husband and actor, also paid respect to the late singer. "Today, we have lost the best of all time!" the actor said on his social media channels. We've all been left dumbfounded and heartbroken. It's a loss that can't be replaced. Lata ji, may you rest in peace. Thank you for sharing your voice, talent, and compassion with us. We are fortunate to have lived during Lata Mangeshkar's heyday."
