Asha Bhosle fondly known as Asha Ji has been bestowed with Padma Vibhushan because of an incredible arena she provides with her singing. She has crooned amazing repertoire of versatility ranging from ghazals, bhajans, traditional Indian classic music, pop, folk songs, qawwali, and Rabindra Sangeet in over 20 different languages including foreign languages.
Even after possessing this much of versatility, Asha Ji is an icon who keeps reinventing herself time and again. The veteran singer recently launched her own YouTube channel and now she is coming up with a new show titled ‘Asha Ki Asha’. The show appears to be the singer’s musical tribute to the world, who gave her the respect and adulation she so deserves. And in this age and era of nepotism and musical shows which thrive on drama more than talent, ‘Asha Ki Asha’ promises to be a show to uncover real talent.
Speaking of the same Asha Ji said that her only interest is in the singers and musical talents, and this show is nothing about highlighting his/her life. Many know that Asha Bhosle always loves to see young talented students on their musical journey get their due credit.
Asha Ji said, “I’ve always referred young talents to composers, but it is not always that they achieved their dreams. But lockdown brought with it the big idea.”
She further continued by saying that one day, when she saw her granddaughter singing online with friends and having a blast, it struck her that even she could unearth real talent through my YouTube and social media. Hence, she is inviting aspiring singers to send her two-minute musical videos so that she can review and give a platform to the best.

The veteran singer placed emphasis on the fact that she is clearly looking for musical talents and unique voices, and their looks, age, nationality, etc won’t matter. And adding more to the same, the chosen one will b blessed with Rs 1 lakh from Asha Bhosale.
Asha Ji is eager to guide young talents as she herself started her career at the age of 10.
