(Siasat News): Renowned playback singer Mubarak Begum who had created a storm after singing a duet with legendry late Mohd. Rafi in 1963 hit Humrahi, starring Rajendra Kumar and Jamuna, ‘Mujhko Apne Gale Lagalo Ai Mere Humrahi’, is now leading a life where she has been facing financial crunch for quite some time in Mumbai.
There was a time when serpentine queues were spotted of her fans to get her autograph. She has been living in Jogeshwari, a suburban in Mumbai where she occupies a one bedroom flat in Sultanabad society.
Only few people know about her residence. She has sung memorable songs with S D Burman, Salil Chowdhury, Khayyam, Kalyanji Anandji, Shanker Jaikishan and many others.
However, she was not as lucky as Mangeshkar sisters to lead an affluent life. Further details are awaited.
