Today is Singer Anupama Deshpande’s Birthday. She was born this day in 1953. Anupama Deshpande catapulted to fame with her rendition of the folk Sohni Chanab de kinare… Sohni-Mahiwal (1984). The song almost never happened to her. Asha Bhonsle was supposed to sing this song, originally. Since she was busy, the composer Anu Malik got Anupama Deshpande to sing and planned to get it redubbed by Ashaji. However, when Ashaji heard the song, she told Anu Malik to retain the newcomer’s voice and give her full credit. Anupama Deshpande has sung as many as 124 songs in 92 movies.
