Internet sensation and singer Ranu Mondal on being delivered by a daughter Elizabeth Sathi Roy and stated hopes to unite with her again.
The 58-years-old singer was spotted after a video of her singing went viral online, and composer Himesh Reshammiya chose to offer her a chance to prove her talent.
Ranu said Mid Day, “I don’t want to dwell on the past. God willing, we all can be collected again someday.”
Earlier this month, Elizabeth had insisted that Ranu’s managers were controlling her mother. Reacting to the claims, Ranu had told NewsChannels, Ranu Mondal on being delivered by a daughter
“I think there’s some mistake or maybe someone is provoking [Sathi] to answer all these things.
Atindra (the man who shared Ranu’s video on social media) and Tapan (Das; a club member) are receiving proper care of me. I’m unaware of them approaching Sathi.”
Himesh Reshammiya has written two songs with her for his future film Happy Hardy and Heer. After the launch of the song Teri Meri Kahani from the film, Ranu spoke about the practice of recording a song for the 1st time, and told the tabloid,
“When I wore the headphones for the 1st time, it made me even more confident. I used to hear songs of Lataji [Mangeshkar], Mohammed Rafi and Kishore Kumar and keep learning.”
She also told PTI, “If I didn’t have the love, I maybe wouldn’t have been able to sing songs. I have God’s love, which is why I could sing. When I used to sing, I didn’t realise (this day would come), but I had faith in my voice. I was originally motivated by Lata (Mangeshkar) Ji’s voice and used to sing as a child. Even in the future, I’ll stay to sing. I never lost hope. Yes, the importance of the stage given to me by Himesh Ji, is something that maybe I didn’t anticipate. I had earlier performed on stage, but there was a gap of a few years in between.”
Himesh also told the daily that Salman Khan’s dad and writer Salim Khan inspired him to help Ranu.” Salman Bhai’s [Khan] father, Salim uncle once advised me that whenever I come across a talented person, I should encourage him. Ranji’s singing was so mesmerising that I had to give her this platform.”
