The 90-year-old singer was admitted to the Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai on 11 November (Monday), after complaining of breathing difficulty. However, as of Tuesday, her condition was reported as 'critical' and there was also news that the singer had been put on life support. As reported earlier, her doctor, Pratit Samdani stated that she is "still on life support, her condition is slowly improving, but she is still critical."

On 15 November, an official statement was released by the singer's family: "Lata didi is stable and getting better. Request to please do not heed to needless rumours and react. Let us all collectively pray for her long life instead."

Mangeshkar has lent her voice for thousands of songs in Hindi, regional and foreign languages. She was awarded the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian honour in 2001. Her last full album was for the late filmmaker Yash Chopra-directed 2004 film Veer Zaara.

Mangeshkar recorded her latest song this year - 'Saugandh Mujhe Is Mitti Ki', which was released on 30 March as a tribute to the Indian Army. In October, the singer joined the photo and video sharing app Instagram and garnered over 46,000 followers within a few minutes.

Meanwhile, Bhandarkar will take a masterclass at the Indian International Film Festival (IFFI) 2019 moderated by trade analyst Taran Adarsh on 21 November.
