Lata Mangeshkar's comment: 

For the uninitiated, Lata Mangeshkar during a recent media interaction reportedly said that she will consider herself fortunate if someone is benefitted by her name and work, but she feels that 'imitation is not a reliable and durable companion for success.' As per media reports, Lata Mangeshkar said that by singing her song, or Kishore Kumar's song or Mohammad Rafi's song aspiring singers can get short-term attention, but it won't last.

“She has been inspired by Lata ji but no one can become a legend like her. She is the best. Meaning of Lata ji’s comment was that you can get inspired, it’s a good thing, but it’s not necessary to (do a) straight copy. Which she anyway hasn’t done,” he told reporters. There is a difference between being inspired by a singer and copying that person’s work, Reshammiya said.
