What I expected to be anecdotes and insight into the life of the greatest Hindi playback singer in Bollywood history turned out to be far from that.

If God would say, ask for one boon. Some would ask for fame, some would like to be a billionaire, some would ask for power, but I will say give a few moments with Rafi Sahab.
