When Lata Mangeshkar refused to sing with Mohammed Rafi in front of everyone, the reason will surprise

Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar, who gave many hit songs together, did not speak to each other for almost 4 years. In the 1960s, Rafi Sahab’s controversy with Lata Mangeshkar also made headlines. Even though the songs sung by both of them were highly appreciated, very few people would know that the two did not even speak to each other for 4 years.

After all, what had happened that Rafi sahib had refused to sing with Lata Mangeshkar.

According to media reports, the reason for the dispute between Mohammed Rafi and singer Lata Mangeshkar was the royalty of the singers for the songs. Lata ji wanted the singers, like the musical directors, to also get a share of the song royalty. Whereas Rafi Sahab’s opinion was completely different from Lata ji. Rafi Sahab believed that when a singer receives a fee for a song, he is not entitled to royalty.

According to media reports, in 1961, during the recording of the song for the movie Maya, the differences between Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammad Rafi came to light. After the recording, when Lata Mangeshkar asked Rafi Sahab for his opinion on royalty, he flatly refused. Then Lata ji announced in the same studio that from now on he will not sing any songs with Rafi Sahab. Saying this, Lata Mangeshkar got angry and left there. It is said that after 4 years of the efforts of actress Nargis, there was a patch on both.
