Singer Asha Bhosle met singer Lata Mangeshkar, who is currently admitted in the ICU ward of Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai, on Saturday evening. After meeting Lata, Asha spoke to reporters as she was leaving the hospital in a car.
Asha Bhosle, quoting ANI news agency, said, “The doctor has said that she is currently in good health.” Earlier, Dr Pratib Samdhani, who is treating Lata Mangeshkar, said the singer was being treated aggressively and tolerated the procedures well. After previously recovering from covit-19 and pneumonia, Lata was again placed on ventilator support due to her poor condition.
