Lata Mangeshkar’s family will fulfill the late singer’s dream of building an old age home for artistes. It will be built on a huge plot of land near Nasik and will be called Swar Mauli. Amitabh Bachchan made a formal announcement about the family’s plans, on Twitter on 13th July.
Swar Mauli Foundation is a secular non-profit organisation registered by late Lata in July 2021. Its co-founders are Lata’s sister, Usha Mangeshkar, niece, Rachana Shah, and composer Mayuresh Pai, a close family friend. Sonu Nigam and Madhur Bhandarkar are members of the advisory committee.
Incidentally, Lata Mangeshkar had instituted the Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital in Pune, which gives subsidised or free treatment to artistes.
