Not everyone is liking Lata Mangeshkar’s comment on Sudden Rise of Ranu Mondal. This kind of Reaction is not expected from a legend of Lata Mangeshkar’s stature. Lata Mangeshkar had said in an interview that ‘imitation is not a reliable and durable companion for success’ when speaking about Mondal.

She could have been more gracious and welcoming if someone has tried to be like her as that someone idolises her.

Mondal, who has now recorded three tracks for singer-composer Himesh Reshammiya, became an overnight social media sensation after a video of her singing Lata Mangeshkar’s soulful number “Ek pyaar ka nagma hai” at Ranaghat railway platform went viral on the internet.
