She first time sung for film in 1964 and that was title song of V. Shantaram's classic movie 'Geet Gaya Patharo Ne'..which picturised on Rajashree! Then after a big gap in 1990 she composed the music of Govind Nihlani's art film 'Drishti' and sung all songs which mostly picturised on Dimple Kapadia!
