According to India Today, Bhupendra, who has recorded several outstanding playback tracks with Lata, claimed, "I can't say it is a happy one anymore. With Lata's death, it is the end of an era. There is no one else like her. Recalling his journey alongside Lata during Naam Gum Jayega, as you may recollect being summoned by the song's composer, RD Burman, for an ordinary recording, he continued, "We went and recorded the song. There was a little story in the making. Har gaane ki story nahi hoti (Not every song has a story). But it was a song composed by RD and I did the recording. In those days, we never used to feel overwhelmed by each other’s presence. We used to focus on the song and try to understand the song. We worked like a team."

He went on to say and clarify that it was not his first meeting with Lata. According to Bhupinder, they used to encounter one another in studios and greet one another, but the first song they performed together was Beeti Na Bitai Raina for Parichay in 1972. The pair's second song was Naam Gum Jayega. Bhupinder had always seen Lata as a professional singer. She was sincere and would sing each song with diligence. In those days, artists used to be sincere and respectful towards each other.
