Singer Asha Bhosle is all set to turn 88 tomorrow, says “I’m just waiting for things to get normal”

One of the main proponents of the Golden Era of Bollywood when music was the reason people went to watch movies, singer Asha Bhosle turns 88 tomorrow. She describes how she is “waiting for things to get normal” to entertain the audience once again.

Bollywood singer Asha Bhosle will turn a year older tomorrow on 8th September 2021. Talking about the plans for any celebration regarding the occasion, the singer said that nothing special happens. She keeps it simple by cutting a cake and spending quality time with family.

While speaking to Hindustan Times she said, “Ghar mein simple sa hota hai mahul, aur bacche cake kaat lete hain. Party ya zyada kuch nahi hota. Birthday is not a special day for me. Hum toh buddhe hote hai us din. It is something that kids celebrate,”


During the conversation, she recalled how earlier she used to celebrate her birthday. She last celebrated her 75th birthday on a big scale when she had invited big names of the industry.

She added, “I celebrated my birthday once when I turned 75. We invited every singer I’ve worked with and share a close bond with. Uske baad, I asked my family to refrain from (throwing) a party. This year, I will be in Lonavala with my daughter-in-law and grand-daughter.”

Talking about the current situation of the pandemic she feels restless. She describes how she is eagerly waiting for things to get normal so that she could return to singing. Her words were, “Just before the pandemic, I did three live shows. It was because of the Covid-19 crisis that many of my shows got cancelled. Pandemic mein toh puri duniya hi baith gai. I’m just waiting for things to get normal, so that I can resume my live shows,”
