Mumbai: Melody queen Lata Mangeshkar had an affair with Bhupen Hazarika. This secret has been unveiled by late Bhupen Hazarika’s estranged wife Priyamvada Patel Hazarika.

Priyamvada lives in Ottawa city of Canada these days. She is in Assam to attend first death anniversary of Bhupen Hazarika. She made this revelation in an interview given to a local Assamese TV channel.

Priyamvada held Lata’s equations with Hazarika as one of the reasons why she chose to get separated from her husband in 1963 after 13 years of her marriage.
Her allegation has not only irked the Mangeshkar’s family but has also offended filmmaker Kalpana Lajmi, Hararika’s companion for over 40 years.

According to Priyamvada, Bhupen and Lata shared one of the three bedrooms in their apartment whenever she came to Kolkata.

While remembering one occasion, music director duo Kalyanji-Anandji had advised Priyamvada in Gujarati that it was of no use to expect Bhupen to return to her bedroom from Lata’s room.

In 1950, Lata ji also sang a song in the Assamese language for late Bhupen Hazarika.

It is noted that after the death of Bhupen Hazarika, Lata has said in her condolence message that no one in this world can be like him. I love his singing and love to be with him because he is a man full of life.
