The nightingale of Bollywood – Lata Mangeshkar was admitted to the Breach Candy hospital in Mumbai earlier today. The legendary singer is said to be in a critical condition after she complained that she had difficulties in breathing. She was kept on a ventilator at the hospital and now has returned home after being examined by the team of doctors present there.

Later on however, Lata Mangeshkar’s team issued a statement saying, “Lata Mangeshkar had chest infection so she was taken to Breach Candy Hospital, Mumbai today. She is now back at her home and is recovering.”
