Lata Mangeshkar woke up to a shocking news last Wednesday that a woman called Revati Khare had been allegedly swindling a whole lot of people of their money by using the singer’s name.
Disappointed by the duplicity adopted by some people, Lata says, “It pains me to know that a person can fall so low to make some quick money. It pains me even more to know that my name was being used to dupe innocent people of their hard-earned money. I can’t begin to tell you how saddened I am by how low human nature has fallen.”
Lata is scared about the intricacies involved. She reveals, “The police has taken over the matter. So, I’ve nothing to worry about. But I am scared by this woman’s wherewithal. She not only got letter pads with my picture printed on it, but also got an image of my Bharat Ratna trophy printed on the letter pad. I’ve never had my picture on my letter pad. She also got my signature absolutely right. That scared me.”
