Lata Mangeshkar, one of the most enduring and popular singers in the history of Bollywood, has died at 92.
She died in Mumbai, where she had been hospitalized with pneumonia and COVID-19.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted that he's "anguished beyond words." Across India, government buildings are flying their flags at half-staff.
Mangeshkar's popularity, both within the Indian subcontinent and abroad, went on unabated for decades, unrivaled by any other female Bollywood singer with the possible exception of her sister, Asha Bhosle.
