Lata Mangeshkar dedicates song to Virat Kohli

MUMBAI: Virat Kohli's knock of 235 at Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Sunday got unexpected plaudits from legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar on Monday morning.

The weekend was a good one for the country, with India going on to win the fourth test match by an innings and 36 runs against England today 12 December 2016.

After this victory, a delighted Lata dedicated the song ‘Aakash Ke Us Paar Bhi’ to Kohli and shared on her Twitter account today 12 December 2016.

Lata Mangeshkar posted, “Khas taur se Virat Kohli Kohli ko badhaai deti hun jinhone 235 run banaaye.”

The song is a soulful rendition by Lata Mangeshkar, which is very inspirational and uplifting. The music was composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar and the lyrics were penned by Gulzar. The song is taken from the album 'Mere Watan Ke Logo’ by Lata Mangeshkar. The album was released on 27 January 1963 on Saregama (then HMV).

Lata has always been a cricket fan over the years. She follows the sport religiously, and the grapevine has always buzzed with talk of her relationship with a former cricketer from Mumbai, which never culminated in marriage.

Lata's love of cricket continues unabated, it seems.
