What is noteworthy is the fact that even though Lataji is known for her devotional songs, this is the first time that she would be rendering the Hanuman Chalisa. Says Lata Mangeshkar, "We are going through tough times and Hanumanji is known as 'Sankatmochan'. In my 60-year career, I have not sung his praises. It just occurred to me now to sing the Hanuman Chalisa... the time is right for me to seek his blessings." We hope that Lataji's rendition of Hanuman Chalisa is loved not just by her ardent followers but even the Almighty himself.
