NEW DELHI (AP) -- Police say the daughter of a popular Hindi film singer has died from a gunshot wound in an apparent suicide in Mumbai.

Commissioner Krishna Prakash said police were investigating the death of Varsha, daughter of Bollywood's most prolific singer, Asha Bhosle.

Bhosle was away in Singapore for a regional film award ceremony when the shooting occurred.

Friends and relatives who attended Varsha's cremation early Tuesday said she had been suffering from depression for several years.

Asha Bhosle began her career in 1943 as a playback singer pre-recording songs so Bollywood actors could lip sync to them in their films. She has sung more than 12,000 songs in her seven-decade career.

In 2011, the Guinness Book of World Records named Bhosle the world's most recorded musical artist.
