Lata shared her joy through a tweet, saying the beauty of the song lies in the fact that it does not seem to rust despite being created half-a-decade ago.
"Namaskar Is varsh 'Lag ja gale ke phir ye hasee'n raat' is geet ko 50 saal pure ho rahe hain. aisa madhur geet aaj bhi purana nahi lagta," Lata tweeted.
She even shared the link of the song and posted, "Ye amar geet aap ki seva me prastut hai."
Mangeshkar's career has spanned over seven decades.
The singing legend began her career in 1942 and has recorded songs for over a thousand Hindi films. She has sung songs in over thirty-six regional Indian languages and foreign languages, though primarily in Marathi and Hindi.
