My brother Siddharth is the most precious gift in the world for me.

I always wish him happiness and success, and not just for Raksha Bandhan but for every single day of his life. I consider myself the luckiest sister in the world. More power to my adorable bhaiya!

I deeply miss my brother Siddharth who passed away 15 years ago.

But I'm also grateful for my brother Adam who is 12 years younger than me. Since there's such a big difference in our age, I don't see him as the typical protective brother. On the contrary, I'm very protective of him.

All I expect from him is that he spares soem time for me.

My brother Dr Rahul Dutta is more like a friend than an older  brother.

And he knows exactly what I want. The other day, I liked a piece of jewellery while window-shopping and before I knew it, it became my Rakhi gift. He is traveling this year on Raksha Bandhan but will be back in time to celebrate with me.

I am very lucky to have a wonderful brother like Sanjay (Leela Bhansali).

He is  thoughtful, caring and is always concerned about my well-being. This raksha bandhan, I pray for his good health and the super-duper success of Ram Leela.

The only gift that I want from him is that he should always continue to love me.

I am older than my brother Rahul so tradition be damned.

I’ll give him a gift this Raksha Bandhan, not the other way around.

My brother Baba is my most precious gift; I don’t need anything from him. He is my son, friend and guide.

Raksha Bandhan always makes me emotional. This year I am in my native village Mijwan for the festival. I feel bad that I can’t personally tie the rakhi on his wrist this year.  That happens rarely..

He doesn’t allow anyone else to tie a rakhi on him. No moohboli bahens for my brother! I wouldn’t tolerate them.

'My brother is the son that I never had'

More than a brother, Hridaynath is the son that I never had.

I feel elated when I sing for my brother -- he is such a perfectionist.

To work with him is taxing but ultimately very satisfying. When I sing for other composers I’m always unsure about whether I've done my best. 

Hridayanath doesn’t hesitate to tell me if I go wrong.  . But tomorrow the entire world will hear you. How would you feel if listeners pinpoint the errors in your singing?’ He’s a very  knowledgeable human being and not just in the field of music.

His knowledge of Marathi literature and poetry is vast. He’s also familiar with both modern and non-contemporary poets.

All my albums with my brother have been reasonably popular. My first non-film album with Hridayanath was Mogra Phulela that released 35 years ago and the album is still available in the market.

It wasn’t a conscious decision to not work together for so long. Nothing materialized for one reason or another.

My brother Hridaynath Mangeshkar’s album of Meera bhajans -- Chala Vahi Des -- is an all-time favourite. However, it’s not true  that  I refused to sing  Meera bhajans for anyone except my brother.

I sang Jaidev’s Main janoon nahin piya ko Milan kaise howe ri in Chand Grahan  and Jo tum todo piya  for Shiv-Hari in Silsila.

I also loved working for my brother in Maya Memsaab and Lekin.
