Watch: Asha Bhosle performing 'In Aankhon Ki Masti Mein' at BBC Studios in 1984

Asha Bhosle was responsible for breathing life through her voice into the soundtrack of Muzaffar Ali's 1981 classic, 'Umraon Jaan.'

The national award winning singer lent her unique, yet glorious voice to the artistically inspiring soundtrack for the movie which went on the define the lead character, played by the timeless - Rekha.

Three years after the release of the movie and her graceful interpretations of the Shehryar-penned poetic ballads, the songbird made an appearance at the BBC studio, in Pebble Mill, England - delivering a refreshing take of one of the most successful tracks from the film's soundtrack - 'In Aankhon Ki Masti Mein.'

Asha's renditions of the songs from the critically acclaimed masterpiece have been forever etched in our memory. But her live rendition from BBC's studio-like setting was just as riveting as her original, featured on the soundtrack's Vinyl.

Hear it out for yourself:



It was the year 1984 - 5 years after Asha's elder sister, the iconic Lata Mangeshkar graced the same stage to showcase the world, her spellbinding instrument.

Remember, we wrote an article about her appearance on the show too?

The perfection in the video above reminds us, how music is served with the simplicity of true artistry - something that has been missing our music lately.
