Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah team apologises for airing incorrect fact about Lata Mangeshkar song

The Gokuldham society members had a musical night in the last two episodes of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, which turned out to be a musical affair. However, later in the sequence, the team broadcast an incorrect fact about Lata Mangeshkar’s “Aye Mere Watan Ke Logo.” Following the episode, the creators apologised on social media for the oversight.

“We would like to apologise to our viewers, fans, and well-wishers,” read the note signed by creator Asit Kumar Modi and the Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah team. We inadvertently mentioned 1965 as the year of release of the song “Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon” in today’s episode. However, we would like to make a correction.On January 26th, 1963, the song was released. We pledge to be more careful in the future. We are grateful for your love and support.”

According to the plot, Bhide (Mandar Chandwadkar) was seen playing classic songs from the past, and the residents of the neighbourhood gathered to dance and have a good time. Dadaji (Amit Bhatt) was even seen telling the kids an anecdote about the song. Dadaji continued to share the incorrect year as they played the final song, “Aye Mere Watan Ke Logo.” He explained to everyone that the song was written as a tribute to the Indian soldiers who died in the 1965 Indo-China war. While the song’s purpose was correct, the war occurred in 1962, and the song was released on Republic Day in 1963.Dadaji was even seen talking about how Lata Mangeshkar’s voice had such an impact on then-Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru that he personally met her and praised her.

The Indian Nightingale Nehru was teary-eyed after hearing Lata Mangeshkar’s performance, according to Lata Mangeshkar. She had even revealed that she had been approached a day before the performance to perform the song. She had declined to sing due to a lack of rehearsal time, but on the insistence of Kavi Pradeep (lyricist of the song), she ended up performing the song in front of former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru at the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi.

“At first I was nervous, thinking I had made some mistake,” she said of her meeting with him. But when I met Panditji (Nehru), I saw tears in his eyes, and he said to her, ‘Lata, tumne aaj mujhe rula diya’ (Lata, you made me cry). In February of this year, the well-known singer passed away.
