Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar turned 91 on Monday. Actor Aamir Khan's birthday wish came a little late but it was totally worth the wait. The actor, in whose films Lata Mageshkar has sung several popular tracks like O Paalan Hare (Lagaan), Phoolon Ke Is Shehar Mein and Mere Sathiya (Parampara), wrote: "Dearest Didi, belated happy birthday. Wishing you many happy returns of the day. May good health and happiness always be with you. Respect and warm regards. Love." Aamir Khan was honoured with the Deenanath Mangeshkar Award in 2017. The award is given in the honour of Lata Mangeshkar's father Deenanath Mangeshkar.
