    The contrasting styles of the two sisters had fed Bollywood gossip that the sisters do not get along. But they lived on the same floor in a building in Mumbai's prestigious Peddar Road, and Asha flatly denies any rift, " There can be none like Didi. I love her songs, her voice, her style. See when I am ill, Didi is at my side and vice versa. When we meet, we don't discuss music at all but she is four years older and I touch her feet and even sometimes even press her feet,as she likes it".

    Asha declined to be a second choice. She set out to create her own style. This began to emerge from 1957 in films like "Paying Guest","Tumsa Nahi Dekha","Howrah Bridge" and "Naya Daur". O.P Nayar gave her tracks with plenty of oomphs in them to make her sound very distinct from Lata's. Both "Teesri Kasam" and "Do Badan" had one song by Lata and also a song by Asha, and it is possible to distinguish the style of the two sisters to prove Asha survived honourably, not just as Lata's younger sister.

    At fourteen Asha Bhosle was married to Ganpat Bhosle. She became the mother of three children though it proved an impossible marriage. Her husband realising the worth of his wife's voice, set out to wxploit her. Asha did something daring for an Indian woman of that time. She walked out. However, she did not divorce her husband and she only remarried after his death. In the intervening years she had been involved with O.P Nayar, who made a wise exploit of her potentials, an antithesis to Lata.
