'I recently got the Radio Mirchi lifetime achievement award. But I was unable to attend. They very kindly came home and gave it to me. But attending the function for my father is something I'd never want to miss,' Lata told IANS.
The legendary singer will attend the function Friday in Pune.
Every year a handful of distinguished artistes are honoured in Pune for their contribution to society. A novel addition to this years' Pandit Dinanath Mangeshkar award would be trophies to cops who fought terrorists on 26/11.
Lata refused to reveal names of composers who have been waiting patiently for her to recover fully; she says she has become more choosy about songs.
'I was always choosy about what I sing. Now I've to be even more particular. The language of the songs doesn't matter. It could be Hindi, Bengali or Marathi. But I've to be convinced about singing them,' Lata said.
