Lata Mangeshkar.

As melody queen Lata Mangeshkar turned 89 on Friday, celebrities like Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit-Nene and Madhur Bhandarkar wished her good health and long life.

Mangeshkar started her career in 1943 at the age of 13 with the song Naachu ya gade, khelu saari, mani haus bhaari for Marathi film Kiti Hasaal. She ventured into Hindi cinema with the song Paa laagu kar jori re for Vasant Joglekar's movie Aap Ki Seva Mein.

Composer Ghulam Haider gave Lata her first major break in 1948 with the song Dil mera toda in the film Majboor. With Aayega aanewaala, a song in the movie Mahal, she registered one of her first musical hits.

Referred to as the Indian Nightingale, some of her hit numbers are Dil vil pyar vyar, Bindiya chamkegi, Tune o rangeele kaisa jaadu kiya, Mere haathon mein, Aaja shaam hone aayi, Dil deewana bin sajna ke and Kitne ajeeb rishte hai yaha pe among many.

One of her most memorable renditions is of Ae mere watan ke logon.
