‘It Pains Me To Know A Person Can Fall So Low To Make Quick Money’: Lata Mangeshkar

Veteran singer Lata Mangeshkar is shocked at how a woman named Revati Khare allegedly duped several people using her name. The soon-to-be 88-year-old singer, speaking to Deccan Chronicle, said:

“It pains me to know that a person can fall so low to make some quick money. It pains me even more to know that my name was being used to dupe innocent people of their hard-earned money.  I can’t begin to tell you how saddened I am by how low human nature has fallen.”

According to reports, Revati Khare, a resident of Mumbai suburb Nallasopara, has been duping people by collecting donations in the singer’s name. The woman would also meet a lot of people at different events in the city, and would speak of having connections with the singer, often promising that she can get Mangeshkar to sing for them on various occasions.


As of last week, Mangeshkar had filed an FIR against Khare at Gamdevi Police station in Mumbai, under sections 420 (cheating), 465 (forgery), 468 (forgery for cheating), and 471 (using genuine as forged) of the Indian Penal Code.

The singer also told DC that she is scared of what the woman is capable of doing, considering she had photos of her and her Bharat Ratna trophy printed on letter pads, and even got her signature right.

Investigation is currently underway.
