How Pamela ji sang in DDLJ…

In the video shared by YRF, there is a clip from one of Pamela ji’s interview. She shared how she got the accidental chance to sing Ghar Aaja Pardesi in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. She said, “I was actually dubbing for Lata (Mangeshkar) ji. I would do a dub and then later Lata ji would come and sing it. But to my greatest pleasure and happiness I can’t tell you, Jatin-Lalit told me that ‘no, you have sung it so beautifully, we don’t want to dub it.’ I can’t tell you how I felt at that time.”
