I had recorded my album but it was not released. I had to record with Lata ji. was doing live and if someone made a mistake, the whole recording would be ruined. So, I was very nervous and by mistake, I told Lata ji, very simply, she said to me, “why are you nervous, you sing well”. And, with the same simplicity, I asked her “when did you listen to me”. She remembers listening to me on an Aarohi show. She was not THE Lata Mangeshkar at that time but an elder encouraging a young singer. The song was Phir Chiddi Raat for Bazaar (1982).”
