About honoring Madhuri Dixit, Lata Mangeshkar says, “Madhuri is a very fine actress and one of the most beautiful and graceful dancers of our cinema. I always like watching her on screen. ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun’ and ‘Devdas’ are my favourites. Whenever we meet we chatter in Marathi.”

“The function in my father’s memory is something our family and I don’t miss any year. This year I am just a little worried about the heat which is grown unbearable. As for the other function, for Sachin Tendulkar… how could I miss that? Sachin is like my son. He calls me Maa. Mukesh’s wife Neeta requested me to be there,” told Lata about the functions.
