New Delhi, Mar 31: After Virat Kohli led the way with a sublime half-century as India defeated Australia by six wickets at Mohali, he is being compared with many ace batsmen.
But it seems the comparison is not really being liked by many as Lata Mangeshkar has said something about the same on social media.
Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar had once said that she feels blessed to have a 'son' like Sachin Tendulkar.
Namaskar.Aaj news mein cricket ke baare mein bahut kuch bataya ja raha hai,ye acchi baat hai (cont) https://t.co/ThfFQOhRQK— Lata Mangeshkar (@mangeshkarlata) March 31, 2016
"Sachin treats me like his mother and I always pray for her like a mother. I can never forget the day when he called me 'aai' (mother) for the first time. I had never imagined that. It was pleasant surprise for me and I feel blessed to have a son like him," Lata said.
"Sachin celebrates his birthday on April 24 which is also my father's (Dinanath Mangeshkar) death anniversary. We never get a chance to meet on that day. On one occasion we had met on April 23," she says.
She recalled an incident when journalists asked Sachin about his feeling for her to which his reply was "what could one think about his mother".
For the 81-year-old Bharat Ratna winner, Sachin is really an ideal son. "I always pray for his success and well being. My blessings are always with him. India has produced many great cricketers but Sachin is Sachin. He is one and only in his generation."
Lata had also praised Kohli after his amazing innings in India-Australia match.
