Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali after hearing this song commented about Lata Mangeshkar's singing "Kambakht, kabhi besuri nahin hoti." ("She never sings out of tune."). This story was related by Pandit Jasraj, who was with the Ustad at that time, in an interview.[MR7]
Music director P. Shamanna reused the tune of this song for the Kannada film song "Indinadina Mana Kanti Shanti" ("Gandharva Kanya", 1955).
