56 years old Ranu Mondal who reportedly used to sing outside Kolkata railway station became an overnight sensation after her soulful rendition of Lata Mangeshkar's classic number 'Ek pyaar ka nagma hai' went viral on the internet. Her melodious voice was widely appreciated by the audience and was shared widely across social media platforms. Soon after, Bollywood music composer-actor Himesh Reshammiya spotted her and gave her a Bollywood break.
Himesh Reshammiya who recently recorded a song with Ranu Mondal for his upcoming film 'Happy Hardy and Heer' unveiled the first teaser of the track titled 'Teri Meri Kahani' on Tuesday. In the preview of the music video, Himesh Reshammiya introduced Ranu Mondal as the playback singer, while he gave a voiceover to the same on how one should never stop dreaming because dreams do come true. Sharing the short clip on Instagram, Himesh Reshammiya revealed that the full song will be coming out on Wednesday, September 11.
After lending her voice to 'Teri meri Kahani', Ranu Mondal recently recreated Himesh Reshammiya's 2006 hit number 'Aashiqui Mein Teri' from '36 China Town'. The singer recently shared a glimpse from the recording session on Instagram where Ranu Mondal can be seen lending her voice as the female lead in full-spirit.

He further stated that Ranu Mondal's voice should reach everyone and he is just offering a platform for the same.
While the internet has been buzzing about her talent, veteran singer Lata Mangeshkar recently expressed her views on the same and said that she thinks her newfound fame won't last long. Lata Mangeshkar during a recent media interaction reportedly said that she will consider herself fortunate if someone is benefitted by her name and work, but she feels that 'imitation is not a reliable and durable companion for success.' As per media reports, Lata Mangeshkar said that by singing her song, or Kishore Kumar's song or Mohammad Rafi's song aspiring singers can get short-term attention, but it won't last.
