Ranu Mondal in her recent interview with Navbharat Times, said, “Lataji ki umar ke hisab se mai choti thi, hu aur aage ja kar bhi rahungi.. Bachpan se unka awaz pasand hai. (As far as age is concerned, I am younger to her and will always remain her junior. I have loved Lataji’s voice since childhood).”
Lata Mangeshkar ji said Ranu Mondal, she expressed happiness but with reservations. but Lata Mangeshkar said that “Agar mere naam aur kaam se kissiko bhala hota hai toh main apne-aap ko khush-kismat samajhti hoon.

This statement was not well taken by some sections of social media. but Ranu Mondal is enjoying the early days of controversy, comparison with big Bollywood icons, she looks like a long innings players if stays grounded.
