The best thing about chatting with singers is that even when they are not singing they sound melodious. Once Alka had told me that she loved calling up Didi/ Lata Mangeshkar because she liked listening to her madhur awaaz on the phone. I didn’t tell her at that time but Alka herself sounds just as good to her friends when they called her.
There are all kinds of celebrities, those who appear easy but give you a tough time when you have to deal with them and those who are genuinely uncomplicated and make it as smooth for you as possible. Alka belongs to the latter. She apologized to the guests for keeping them waiting even though it was not her fault and agreed to hum a few songs even though she was not warned about this request.
Most celebrities are good raconteurs and Alka is one of them, she relegated stories from her long career in films and had the audience hooked on to her, don’t believe her is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Qm1bF9qrPA&feature=youtu.be
