    Shahid is just looking for cheap publicity. Lata is, was and will always be the greatest. M Rafi's competition came in the form of Kishore Kumar - the timeless singer. His songs rereleased today still become super hits. I think we should all put this aside and just concerntrate on the beautiful renditions of these beautiful artists. Why stress - their lives have nothing to do with us. Lata is Saraswathi.

    I will say show me the letter and I will believe it...Rafi saab was a great singer and a human being...he is god when it comes to male singers...LM have been known to be competitive and insecure abt competition during those days...Rafi saab had no competition than or until he died...I know this whole thing goes back to "Royalty" issues..
    Some did play against him with forming grping in 70-80s...But no one can replace an everyoung voice which can suit any actor than or now...RIP Rafi saab...Love u

    Mohammed Rafi was a great singer and very nice human being...
    my mom said when he died the roads of Mumbai were flooded with people,not for the heck of it beacuse he was a really nice guy and people genuinely cried on his loss...
    apparently the whole issue between him and LM was about royalty,LM wanted to get money for the use of her songs while Rafi didnt want to as he said they had already got payed for thier work...MR never ever took advantage of his position-everybody loved him for that!a one point of time Kishore Kumar over took him,yet he didnt resort to any tactics to get his no 1 position back!

    LM is said to have been extreamly competitive,in her time she never allowed any other singer to blossom,even her own sister-infact it is said that many songs used to be recorded by new singers but Lm used to then record them her her voice...
    cos of this many music directors completely boycotted her and choose Asha
    MRs son is right but i however dont think that it makes any difference now-Rafi saab wouldnt have wanted this and LM is an old frail lady now...its been years for that incident and it makes no sense to raise it now!
    but i love MR he will remain my fav singer!

    aaahhh my Dad always told me that Lata ji was sort of insecure because of Mohd Rafi which I never understood why? They were both amazing in their own space! Nevertheless my all time Fav singer would always be Mohd. Rafi! Just love love his voice and don't care what Lata M or any one says about him!

    Mohd. Rafi was the male nightangale , if I may say so! Wish he was still there!

    As a fan, i dn't care wat they r cooking in their personal life. Even thou it's LM and MR's son started it, I think we all shld leave their personal problem to them and enjoy their ever green songs with our whole heart . I respect and love both LM & Rafi ji. Both of them are amazing singer.
