One incident I would like to share with you is that after the recording of this song (Chiththi Ayi Hai), I was coming back from Jaipur and I met Mr Raj Kapoor on the plane.

I went to him and paid my respects to him, and introduced myself and said “Sir, I am Pankaj Udhas.” He replied, “My dear, I know you. You are the once who has sung the song ‘Chiththi Ayi Hai.’ You will go a long way.

“I was really surprised hearing this, as the song had yet not been released by then. Later, when I met Mr. Rajendra, then I got to understand why Raj-ji said so. Actually, Raj sahab and Rajendra-ji were good friends and Rajendra-ji had a studio at his home.

One day after having dinner with Raj-sahab, Rajendra-ji played this song which brought out tears in his eyes — and he said no one will ever forget this song.”

Pankaj Udhas himself shared above incident while an interview with IndiaWest.
