Neha Kakkar is certainly at it again! Dandiya Queen Falguni Pathak’s 1999 song Maine Payal Hai Chhankai was the latest classic to be ruined by a singer after several other iconic songs from the past.
The song, titled O Sajna, was remixed by Tanishk Bagchi with lyrics written by Jaani and includes Neha Kakkar, Priyank Sharma, and Dhanashree Verma.
Numerous users of social media expressed their dissatisfaction with the song shortly after its release while identifying Falguni Pathak.
Falguni made it known that she wasn’t satisfied with the version by sharing the Instagram stories of these admirers.
You may listen to the vintage classic again here; I won’t even publish the remixed version.
One fan wrote, “How low you can go Neha Kakkar? Stop ruining our old classics for us. Falguni Pathak is the OG. Stop with it already”.
Another reacted, “No offence but with. Why do you remake/remix old classics? I love Falguni Pathak, I’ve grown dancing to her songs and it cringes me watching the new ‘O Sajna’ song by Neha Kakkar”.
A third fan asked Falguni Pathak to “sue her”.
While a fourth fan wrote, “Why do you do this Stop torturing us with your voice & with the remakes of our fav songs. Falguni Pathak if she can be sued, if there’s a law that can let you do that, please do it we will even sign the petition”.
See a few of the tales below:
Falguni stated to Pinkvilla, “I am overwhelmed and touched on receiving so much love from all over for the song, so had to convey their thoughts,” in response to a question about the response the new song has gotten and how people have supported her while criticising Neha Kakkar.
She said, “I wish I could but the rights are not with me,” when asked if she was really going to sue Neha as many of her followers want her to.
She also said that neither Neha nor the producers had gotten in touch with her following the song’s backlash on social media, nor had they approached her for the remixed version.
When Masakali from Delhi 6 was altered into Masakali 2.0, AR Rahman was also upset.
We just hope that the trend of rehashing old classics ends and that modern singer, lyricists, and composers endeavour to create fresh works.
