One of our readers Blesson is a great fan of Alka Yagnik. So, ignoring the other celebrities born on this day (please forgive me for that), I decided to celebrate Alkaji’s birthday with her fans by posting about her today. I met Alka Yagnik with my sister, for an interview, post the Choli controversy. She was supposed to meet us at Sunny Studios, Juhu. But, either the recording was completed before time or it was canceled, I don’t remember. Anyways, she had left the place by the time we reached there. Mobiles were not popular then. My sister called her home from a nearby PCO and she told us to meet her at her home. Luckily, the interview was completed without any other hassles.
Bollywood and Alka Yagnik: Dear Blesson, whoever you are, this is my post, so I am sharing some of the Alka Yagnik songs that I like. I cannot list all my favorite songs in one post. These songs, particularly, remind me of my growing up days.
