Legendary singer Asha Bhosle will be honored at the Dubai International Film Festival with the Lifetime Achievement Award for her contribution to Indian Cinema.
Asha said “I am delighted to have been nominated to receive this Lifetime Achievement Award from Diff in Dubai — a place with long historic ties to my country. I look forward to visiting this special film festival, which has done so much work to promote the art worldwide.”
Bhosle has recorded more than 12,000 songs for more than 850 films in her 81 years. She has recorded every style of music from film to folk songs, Indian classical music to pop songs as well as Ghazals and Bhajans. Asha Bhosle made her acting debut in 2013 with the film Mai at the age of 80.
She is noted as the “most recorded artist in music history” by the Guinness Book of World Records.
“Asha Bhosle is a stalwart of the Indian music scene, and we are proud to be honoring her. Her work has touched almost every corner of the world: we look forward to welcoming such a legend to Dubai,” said Diff chairman Abdul Hamid Juma.
