Why did Lata Mangeshkar never get married

Sugar for the eyes

An industrial family that falls apart because of the eldest son's inappropriate wedding wishes, a mother who suffers agony because the son marries his loved one despite his father's prohibition and leaves the family seat to establish an independent existence in London, a younger son who does not joyfully usurp the inheritance that has come to him in this way, but goes in search of the lost brother in an attempt to unite the family: Karan Johar's "Sometimes Happy, Sometimes Sad" is Bollywood cinema at its best.
