Veteran singer Asha Bhosle took to social media on Sunday to remember her late husband, legendary music composer Rahul Dev Burman on his birth anniversary.

Happy birthday Pancham.”

Earlier in the day, several Bollywood celebrities took to social media to remember R D Burman and his music on his birth anniversary. Asha Bhosle’s elder sister, playback legend Lata Mangeshkar tweeted in Hindi, “R D Burman ko kaun nahi jaanta. Wo janam se rajputra tha aur sangeet ka wo raja tha. Aaj uski jayanti hai. Main uski yaad ko aur uske sangeet ko vinamra abhivadan karti hun. (Who does not know R D Burman. He was a prince by birth and the king of music. Today is his birth anniversary. I pay my humble tribute to his memories and music.)”

Poet-lyricist-screenwriter Javed Akhtar wrote, “Today on June 27 it is RD Burman’s birth anniversary. Time is always kind to genuinely great people, it keeps enlarging the image of a genius more and more. No surprise that his popularity among the gen next and the young musicians is increasing by the day.”

Director Sujoy Ghosh, whose first film Jhankar Beats was a tribute to Pancham, wrote, “Happy birthday R D Burman. Your music makes happiness. Thank you for all the happiness.”
