Another big hit song of hers is Mera Babu Chhail Chhabeela Main to Nachoongi, which also got her accolades all over the world. Her songs in the film Gharonda also became extremely famous among the audience. She has worked with some of the most reputable music directors of the Hindi film industry such as Jaidev, Kalyanji-Anandji and Bappi Lahiri.
