The jubilee queen of the 1960s and 1970s who churned out hits in her heydays as though they were going out of fashion, turned 77 with minimum fanfare on October 2.

"It was just a bunch of us me and my friends who are not part of the film industry together for lunch. Otherwise what is there to celebrate?" asks Asha who gave us thundering hits like ‘Mere Sanam’, ‘Teesri Manzil’, ‘Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon’, ‘Do Badan’ and ‘Kati Patang’.

Ashaji misses her colleagues and contemporaries.

"Two of my dearest friends Nanda and Sadhana are gone. Last year I lost (actress) Shammi my closest friend. I still have close friends Helen and Waheeda Rehman. But we are a dwindling group". Any unfulfilled dreams? "I wish I could take the clock back by 4O years so I could be a Sanjay Leela Bhansali heroine".
