Lata Mangeshkar supports AR Rahman in the recent controversy

In this season of controversies, yet another striking issue is the one in which a section of the audience at AR Rahman's London concert walked out due to the lack of Hindi songs in it. This sparked up a nation-wide debate, with a lot of celebrities lending their support to the Mozart of Madras.

Legendary singer, Lata Mangeshkar, who has worked along with AR Rahman a few times, has now given a statement in support of the Oscar winning musician.She says that she is finding a new sense of intolerance in the audience. She also added that she has sung in 38 different languages in her 70-year long career and the fans always enjoyed all kinds of music. She said that many of Rahman's most memorable songs have been in Tamil and only then translated to Hindi.

Lata Mangeshkar feels that this is not a healthy development and will not help the industry in any way. So this adds to the massive support AR Rahman has received in this issue.
