In an interview to the NDTV channel, Mehta said,"If Kashmir wants me, I will come back to perform." He said he would also bring the music for everyone and all of Kashmir next time.
"Geelani sahab, main aapka dost hun (am your friend)," he said in the interview referring to Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Geelani who opposed the concert since it would digress the real Kashmir human rights issue and legitimize "Indian rule".
Another civil rights group also organized a parallel concert in Kashmir to oppose the one organized by the German Embassy.
Despite being attacked by opponents, his concert in Kashmir touched souls and mesmerised the hearts of music lovers at Srinagar's Shalimar Bagh even as the event was held amid a heavy security cloak and under the shadow of protests by the separatists.
"Kashmir attracts anyone who lives in this subcontinent. From my youth, I have been drawn to this place," he told the channel.
Saying the concert had no political implications, he told the channel," We are not politicians, cannot change boundaries."
"My first identity is Indian," Mehta said, calling him a Bombay Hindustaniwala.
Zubin Mehta conducted Mozart and Beethoven which were also messages of peace and justice during the French Revolution.
"Beethoven was involved in French Revolution, so was Mozart," he told the channel.
He informed that he even run a foundation in North Israel for Arab students who learn Western music of Beethoven and Mozart.
The concert Ehsaas-e-Kashmir, organized by the German embassy in India, was broadcast live in as many as 50 countries.
The orchestra played some of the most popular western classical music compositions which charmed the audience for more than an hour on Saturday.
Mehta earlier said he had been waiting for this moment for a long time.
"I have waited for this moment for a long time. There are those we have hurt inadvertently. I promise next time we shall do this with everyone in a stadium where everyone can come, so it won't be a select few," said Mehta at the start of the concert.
He said, "When the music starts, a positive wave goes from this stage everywhere."
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah backing the concert had said the separatists were silent when Pakistani band Junoon came and performed in the state in 2008.
Mehta on Friday said in New Delhi that he did not choose Kashmir for the performance but Kashmir chose him hoping that music will promote peace in the region.
"I did not choose Kashmir. Kashmir chose me," he told reporters on his arrival in New Delhi.
On the many controversies and protests surrounding the concert, he said music is for peace.
The German Embassy in New Delhi called the concert an unprecedented event in Srinagar.
About 2500 guests attended the concert.
