Bhosle, who has been singing for past six decades, also thanked her elder sister Lata Mangeshkar for her "invaluable" guidance.
Didi's ashirvad is always with me but this time it's special since I'm far away on tour in USA & her support & guidance is invaluable— ashabhosle (@ashabhosle) September 7, 2015
The singer, who began her playback singing career in the shadow of Mangeshkar in the late forties, has collaborated with music directors such as OP Nayyar, Sachin Dev Burman, RD Burman, Khayyam and Bappi Lahiri.
She gave Hindi cinema some of its most memorable songs including 'Jhumka Gira Re', 'Raat Akeli Hain', 'Aaja Aaja', 'Dum Maro Dum', 'Dil Cheez Kya Hain', among others.
