She also featured in the Guinness Book of World Records (from 1974 to 1991) for having made the most recordings in the world.

Some of her evegreen hits are "Aaja re pardesi", "Pyar kiya toh darna kya", "Ajeeb dastaan hai ye", "Aaj phir jeene ki tamanna hai", "Lag ja gale" and "Rangeela re".

Lata also launched two CDs of her father's songs under her music company at the Wednesday event.

"I have started LM Music Company for which HMV has given me all the rights of my father's songs and I am happy to release two of those CDs today under my music company," she said.
