Legendary singer Asha Bhosle will perform for paramilitary soldiers serving in some of the difficult areas in Arunachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir. The 82 year old singer, who has dominated the Hindi film music for six decades with her melodious voice, has herself offered to entertain the soldiers with her songs in forward areas.
Minister of State for Home Affairs, Kiren Rijiju, said that the singer made the offer to him during a function in Maharashtra recently. "I am deeply touched, she offered me to sing for our soldiers.''
Details of the itinerary are being worked out and the singer is likely to visit Wagah as well. "I grew up with the lovely renditions of Asha ji. I am grateful for her gesture," Rijiju said.
