The pride of our nation, legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar ji recently praised ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his great music sense. She strongly believes that a good filmmaker should also be a good musician, so that he or she knows the quality of music that is required for the movie.
Lata ji in an interview even called Sanjay Leela Bhansali as good as the iconic filmmaker and actor Raj Kapoor when it comes to the choice of music. In her statement she said “Bhansaliji has that quality. He has a deep knowledge of music and songs, and of the Indian classical heritage and culture. I believe Bhansaliji has a music sense as sharp as Raj saab (Raj Kapoor). Raj saab was a complete musician. He played the tabla, the harmonium and the piano. He composed songs and sang them in his own voice before handing them over to professional playback singers."
Lata ji also added “He could have easily scored the music in his films. But he chose not to take credit for the music in his films.”
Well, we couldn't agree more.
