Latadi was treasured by Yashji as India’s singing marvel, The Big B was an all-timeYash Chopra favourite (Kabhie Kabhie, Kaala Patthar etc). And last but not the least Yashji gave new dimensions to Rekhaji's art (Silsila)," said Dr. Reddy has worked with Yashji in films like Chandani etc. Credit: Varinder chawla
