Speaking on behalf of the jury, the director blockbuster Sholay Ramesh Sippy said "Lataji is the ideal exponent of everything to do with music. Her talent transcends time. She can convey every emotion through her voice. In Indian film music, there cannot be anything greater than her and her contribution to India's musical heritage is irrefutable."
