"This Statement Lacks Grace": B'wood Celebrity Along With Fans REACTS To Lata Mangeshkar's Comment On Ranu Mondal
The fans and National Award winning film editor & 'Simran' co-writer Apurva Asrani are disappointed with the 'imitation is art' comment by Lata Mangeshkar on viral sensation Ranu Mondal
"A poor lady sang on a railway platform for a living. #RanuMondal's voice was miraculously noticed by SM and she became a star. Inspiring Lata ji could have been more gracious, complimented and helped her. This lecture on "imitation" was avoidable," another user said.
"Imitation is not art": Lata Mangeshkar REACTS on Ranu Mondal who became a viral sensation after singing ‘Ek Pyar Ka Nagma Hai’
This statement lacks grace. Reminds me of my childhood when original talents like Runa Laila, Suman Kalyanpur, Usha Uthup & Sadhna Sargam didn't get their due because Lataji ruled the roost. Only imitators survived, somewhat. #RanuMondal #LataMangeshkar https://t.co/AsGuW4sFec

A user "disagreed" with Mangeshkar and called her "a bit harsh", while another said that this could have been taken in "true spirits by a senior artist like Lataji".
Mondal, who has now recorded three tracks for singer-composer Himesh Reshammiya for his upcoming movie 'Happy Hardy and Heer' titled 'Aadat', 'Teri Meri Kahani' and 'Ashiqui Mein Teri 2.0', became an overnight social media sensation after a video of her singing Lata Mangeshkar's soulful number "Ek pyaar ka nagma hai" at Ranaghat railway platform went viral on the internet last month.
