New Delhi, Oct 20 Singing legend Asha Bhosle entered the Guinness World Records Thursday for the most single studio recordings. The 78-year-old has reportedly recorded up to 11,000 solos, duets and chorus-backed songs in over 20 Indian languages since 1947.

Asha, who has evergreen numbers like 'Dum maro dum', 'Mehbooba mehbooba' ('Sholay'), 'Piya tu ab to aaja' ('Caravan') and 'Chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko' ('Yaadon ki Baraat') to her credit, was conferred with the Guinness honour at the Asian awards function held in London, a statement said.

The singer is elated with the record. 'Aaj sahi mayne mein mujhe aisa lag raha hai ki mein world ki recognised singer hogayi hu. Mujhe ye pata tha key sabse zyada mere recorded songs hai phir bhi main aaj tak chup rahi (Today, I truly feel I am a world recognised singer. I always knew I have the maximum number of songs to my credit, still I never said anything all this while,' Asha said.

She thanked music researcher Vishwas Nerurkar for helping her get the Guinness title.

'Vishwas Nerurkar ne mere sab gaano ka pata karke Guinness World Records ko correct information diya aur aaj yeh samaan mujhe mila hai (Vishwas Nerurkar found out about all my songs and gave the correct information to Guinness World Records, because of which I got this title),' she added.

Asha also had a message for her fans.

'Mein apne chahanewalo ko kehna chahungi ke aapka pyar mere liye issi tarha se barkarar rahein aur jis tarha aapne mere gaano ko pyaar kiya hai usi tarhan meri acting (Hindi film 'Maaee') ko bi aapka pyar aur ashirwad miley (To all those who love me, I would like to say that I hope your love for me remains the way it has always been and just the way you have loved my songs, you will love my Hindi film 'Maaee' too),' she said.

Asha will make her big screen acting debut with 'Maaee', which is complete and ready for release.

Directed by Mahesh Kodiyal, the film is co-produced by Subhash Dawar of Alliance Entertainment and Nitin Shankar of Rythm D'vine Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.

The film also features Padmini Kolhapure as Asha's daughter.

It is the story of a woman who goes on to live with her daughter and son-in-law after being abandoned by her only son.
