  • Clue no. 2 on father's demise pushing her to act. She is born in MP is quite an informative one. I always though she is from Goa, because of the Mangeshi connection. Secondly I did not know that she had produced films. Photography yes it is a well known fact

  • Everyone - Yeah it is Lata. of course the little known facts are about her music direction and production.

    KM - The last movie that she produced was Lekin that had the wonderful song "yaara seeli seeli"
