Lata, Pt Jasraj sing for Marathi movie

Singing stalwarts Lata Mangeshkar and Pandit Jasraj have teamed up for the first time to record a song for the upcoming Marathi movie, Aai Tujha Aashirwad.

The song Om namoh sukhadayni... is an aarti (hymn) written by Sanjay Upadhaya and composed by 32-year-old Mayuresh Pai. Besides the two greats, Suresh Wadkar is the third singer for the devotional song.

On the coup achieved by him, Mayuresh says it was not much difficult to unite the trio.

'I had already worked with Didi (Lata Mangeshkar as she is affectionately known) and Suresh Wadkar, who is my guru. So getting them on the board was not difficult,' he said.

Also, Pt Jasraj readily agreed as Aai Tujha Aashirwad is his home production, he said. The movie, directed by Pt Jasraj's wife and daughter of V Shantaram, Madhura, and produced by her son Sarang Dev,will release on August 20.
