Lata Mangeshkar returns home, sister Asha says

Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar, who had been hospitalised for 28 days, returned home last week and thanked fans for their love and support. Her sister and Bollywood singer Asha Bhsole has now confirmed Lata is “hale and hearty”, adding that she was so emotional looking at her sister that her songs “came rushing” to her.

Lata was admitted to the Breach Candy Hospital, Mumbai after she complained of difficulty in breathing three weeks ago and was diagnosed with pneumonia. She returned home on Sunday.
