Asha Bhosle makes comeback in Durga Puja song after 23 years
Breaking an almost 23-year hiatus, legendary singer Asha Bhosle has recorded a Bengali song on the occasion of Durga Puja. Asha, who recorded as many as 66 Bengali Puja songs including singles and duets for late composer-husband RD Burman over the years, has come up with her latest release Ebar Pujoy Elaam Phire. The song, released on October 8, is a part of the album Pujoy Asha. Famed playback singer Amit Kumar has also lent his voice to the album with Surey Tumi. Aamar Khatar Patay released in 1963 was Asha's first Puja song, which was composed by Manna Dey.
