In the movie industry, Lata Mangeshkar’s renowned resentments and patch-ups are well-known

There was rarely a music composer in India who didn’t yearn for at least one song in their film to be sung by the great vocalist Lata Mangeshkar.

However, it may come as a surprise to find that a well-known Bollywood music composer has never worked with Lata.

It was none other than the extraordinarily gifted Omkar Prasad Nayyar, who had written hundreds of timeless melodies. He’d also had a lot of success with Lata’s sister, Asha Bhonsle.

Nayyar even declined to accept an award given in Lata’s honor by the Madhya Pradesh government.

The animosity and antagonism between Nayyar and Lata were so severe that they never reconciled.

More than petty rivalry, the two shared a mutual loathing and hostility.

Lata was recruited to perform in Nayyar’s first film as an independent composer, ‘Aasmaan.’ Despite Nayyar and his background musicians waiting for hours, Lata failed to show up for the session.

That marked the start of the notorious rivalry between two legendary musicians. Lata would never sing in Nayyar’s film, he vowed.

Lata, on the other hand, stated that she couldn’t go to Nayyar’s studio since she was preoccupied with another recording. This episode occurred during the start of the 1950s.

The rivalry between the two hasn’t faded even after decades.

Instead, it became increasingly intense, as if it were aged wine.

Whenever they could, they took potshots at each other.

Despite the fact that Lata had fought with many other artists and singers over her career, she was able to put the past behind her and rebuild the friendship.

In the instance of Nayyar, however, both parties refused to put a stop to their feud. Her feud with Mohammed Rafi was well-known.

They’d gotten into a spat over the question of royalty. They were on opposing sides of a controversy that had erupted in the Hindi film business.

Lata believed that vocalists should be compensated as well. Rafi, on the other hand, claimed that after getting remuneration for a song, a singer had no right to generate money from it.

Meanwhile, Asha Bhonsle, Lata’s sister, backed Rafi. From 1963 to 1967, Lata and Rafi did not sing together due to their animosity. Many consider it to be a low point in the Hindi music industry’s history.

RD Burman was the one who made the initiative to make Lata and Rafi’s relationship succeed. Following the reconciliation, the duo went on to produce a slew of great songs.
