Singer Falguni Pathak is not thrilled with Neha Kakkar’s rendition of her iconic song Maine Payal Hai Chhankai. The latter’s new song, O Sajna, is a reproduction of Pathak’s iconic single from 1999. Although Neha’s song has been viewed 18 million times in four days, several netizens and Falguni fans are outraged by the song.
Recently, at an event, Falguni shared her thoughts on the reproduction of her song and the outraged public response to it. While interacting with the media, Pathak said: “I thank all my fans ki ab tak unhe wohi doena aacha lag raha hai. Kyuki uss mein simple thi. Yeh video maine dekha nahi hai … I will watch it. But uss video mein , music, lyrics, picturization mein simplicity hai. Yeh sab bahut mainey rakhta hai. Shayad wohi logo ko chhuta hoga. Toh yeh sab ka dhyaan rakhna zaroori hai.”
Pathak added that songs have been remixed for ages and there have been good renditions as well. “Remixes toh bahut pehele se ban rahe hai. Aaj bhi ban rahe hai… aur kuch aache bhi hai…aisa nahi hai. Yeh thoda iska dhyaan rakhna zaroori hai.”

Several fans of the classic song have panned the rehashed version and have trolled Neha and composer Tanishk Bagchi. Here’s the interesting part of the story, Falguni shared all those trolls and negative comments on her Instagram stories, and in a frenzy she shared the reactions of miffed netizens
Here are the reactions
Neha Kakkar recently spoke on the subject in an interview with a news portal, saying that not everyone is as sensitive as she is, so she can “don’t blame” those who make fun of her. She told ETimes: “I can’t blame them, there are a lot of people who are not emotional at all! To people who are not emotional I would seem fake. But people who are sensitive, like me, will understand me and with me coping Today we don’t see many people who can feel the pain of others and want to help them. I have that quality in me and I don’t regret it.”
