"Priyanka Chopra would be the perfect choice to portray me as she is a singer. Being a singer, she can express a singer well," Asha Bhosle said at the event 'Timeless Asha' concert organised on her 83rd birthday on Thursday, 8 September.

The singer is also set to release her autobiography which she has completed writing. The event, 'Timeless Asha', saw celebrities like Urmila Matondkar, Bhumi Pednekar, Radhika Apte, Mahie Vij, Terence Lewis and Ayushmann Khurana make an appearance. Also seen on the occasion were Tabu, Jaya Prada and Dimple Kapadia.

Lewis and Apte performed to Bhosle's mesmerising songs like 'Aaj Rapat Jaaye Toh', 'Jaane Do Na' and 'Dekha Teri Masti'.

Bhosle became nostalgic as she spoke about how she celebrated her birthday as a child with her mother and as a wife with Pancham. "When I was a child my mother used to feed me sweets made by her on my birthday. After that Pancham used to give me unique gifts. I love to cook so sometimes he gifted something related to my cooking."

The singer also said that she considers every day as her birthday. "Every day when I get up is a birthday for me. Nobody knows about the future. Therefore, I try to spend each day differently, keep myself well, do good and that's how I spend my birthday. Every day is a birthday for me."

About melody queen and elder sister Lata Mangeshkar who gave her blessings, she said: "Lata didi's blessing is the biggest gift for me."

On request, she hummed one of her iconic songs 'Do Lafzon Ki Hai Dil Ki Kahaani' from The Great Gambler (1979).
