In the video, Pamela opened up about how she made the cut to Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’s album. “I was actually dubbing for Lataji. I was doing a dub, but to my greatest pleasure and happiness, I can’t tell you… Jatin-Lalit told me, ‘No, you have sung it so beautifully. We don’t want to dub it.’ I can’t tell you what I felt at that time,” she said.
Pamela lent her voice for Ghar Aaja Pardesi from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), Main Sasural Nahi Jaaungi from Chandni (1989), Meri Banno Ki Aayegi Baraat from Aaina (1993), Meri Maa Ne Laga Diye from Darr (1993), which are also featured in the video.

Pamela made her last on-screen appearance in the 2023 Netflix docu-series The Romantics where she talked about Yash’s film career and the production house’s legacy.
