She is the one who inspires me to pen down lyrics even today,” Kumar says. Music director Rajesh Roshan and Saawan Kumar who have given a number of hits like Shayad meri shaadi ka khayal… (Souten) to Kaho Na Pyar Hai… (Kaho Na Pyar Hai)… are now looking forward to the song Pehle dil ko banaya, phir mohabbat banayi the wordings of which have been inspired by Meena.

Saawan Kumar said,

I can never forget her. Yes, the lyrics have been inspired by Meena and am going to use it in my latest film Baniye Ki Mooch, a romantic comedy. It is after a long time that Rajesh and I have actually recording a song.
