Imitation Is Not Art: Lata Mangeshkar FINALLY REACTS On Ranu Mondal Who Became A Viral Sensation After Singing 'Ek Pyar Ka Nagma Hai'
The singer from the Ranaghat railway station who is now making her Bollywood debut as a playback singer with Himesh Reshammiya's 'Happy Hardy and Heer' is being called the 'Lata Mangeshkar of Ranaghat' after her video made her an overnight sensation last month

When I tell Lataji about Ranu Mondal's experience, Asia's resident Nightingale expresses happiness but with reservations. "Agar mere naam aur kaam se kissiko bhala hota hai toh main apne-aap ko khush-kismat samajhti hoon (If anyone gets benefited from my name and work then I feel fortunate).
"But I also feel imitation is not a reliable and durable companion for success. By singing my songs or Kishoreda's (Kumar), or (Mohd) Rafi Saab's, or Mukesh Bhaiyya or Asha's (Bhosle) numbers, aspiring singers can get short-term attention.
"But it won't last," says Lataji, at the cusp of 90.

She feels great concern for the talent on the music shows on television. "So many children sing my songs so beautifully. But how many of them are remembered after the first flush of success? I only know of Sunidhi Chauhan and Shreya Ghosal."

Lataji's advise to aspiring singers: "Be original. By all means sing the evergreen songs by me and my colleagues. But after a point the singer must seek and find his or her own song."
Lataji gives the example of her own sister. "If Asha (Bhosle) had not insisted on singing in her own style she would have remained in my shadow forever. She is the biggest example of how far individuality can take one's talent to."
