Though social networking has its advantages and disadvantages, the entertainment business has nothing to complain about. Not when Bollywood’s two living legends Lata Mangeshkar (LM) and Amitabh Bachchan (AB) are brought closer through their interaction on Twitter.

Amitabh Bachchan No doubt LM and AB have been very fond of one another for decades. In fact, when AB reluctantly turned singer in the 1970s one of his first major songs was Yeh kahan aa gaye hum with Lataji in Silsila. Sadly the two legends could not record the song together.

Unable to meet frequently because of their individual commitments the two super-icons met sporadically at functions and public events where they get along like a house on fire. Both individually expressed their fondness for one another’s company and their regret at not bonding more often.

That lack of connectivity between AB and LM has changed. Thanks to Twitter where they exchanged messages. So delighted was AB to find his favorite singer on the micro-blogging site says, “The most gratifying moment on Twitter came when I got to interact with Lataji”.

The singing legend reciprocates by saying, “I am really happy to connect with Bachchan Saab through Twitter. I must admit it feels good to be in touch with him again”.

Says Lataji, “I don’t know if they know this. But I’m very fond of the Bachchans. Yes, Jayaji did tell me about the project when we met at a book release. I’m most grateful to both Amitji and Jayaji for always showering me with their love and affection. I’m glad that I got an opportunity to connect with Amitji and the parivar through Twitter”.
