Falguni Pathak Takes U-turn Amid Feud With Neha Kakkar? Says Her Songs Can Be Recreated: 'Acche Se Karo, Faltu Kyu Bana Dete Ho?'
Neha Kakkar and veteran singer Falguni Pathak were recently engaged in a brutal feud over the remake of the iconic Garba song - Maine Payal Hai Chhankai. While the latter had taken a swipe at Kakkar, she has now seemingly taken a U-turn as she maintained that her songs can be recreated.

It all started after, Neha recreated Falguni's iconic song Maine Payal Hai Chhankai, following which the latter had expressed her disappointment.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, Falguni shared her fans’ posts which featured them slamming Neha for ‘ruining’ the singer’s 90’s hit song. She indirectly showed her disapproval of Neha's version, titled O Sajna.


The original song was released in 1999 and featured Vivan Bhatena and Nikhila Palat in the music video. The song was played out as a puppet show in a college fest and was a massive hit.

Now, in a new interview, Falguni Pathak has said that she is fine with her songs getting adapted, however, she made sure to point out that they should be done well and not spoilt. 

During her recent interview with Mirchi Plus, Falguni was asked if she watched Neha’s new version, Falguni said that she did not, but added she will watch it. She said that it will be the first thing she will do.

She also mentioned that she was okay with her songs getting recreated, "Adapt karo lekin acchi tarike se karo. Remixes ban rahe hai aajkal aur acche bhi ban rahe hai jo humlog bhi stage pe gaate hai. Lekin usko acchi tarah se use karo na. Tum usko faltu kyu bana dete ho (Adapt but do it well. There are so many remixes being made well and even we sing it on stage. But do it well. Why do you spoil it)?”


While speaking about her song Maine Payal Hai Chhankai, Falguni said, "I think the song came out in 2000 and till date, it is really fresh. Even when I perform the song now, people give us the same reaction and love that they had on the first day. Usko recreate karo, usme alag rhythm do, make it modern lekin achi tarike se karo na. Uski jo beauty hai, jo simplicity hai usko mat touch karo (Do recreate it, give it a different rhythm, make it modern but do it well. Don't touch the beauty and simplicity of the song)."

Interestingly, Neha’s recreated version featured Priyank Sharma and Dhanashree Verma in the music video of O Sajna. In the aftermath of all the backlash, Neha had shared notes of self-appreciation on Instagram and talked about being self-made and all that she did to attain success as a singer.

Recently, amid the feud, Neha Kakkar even welcomed Falguni Pathak on the stage of Indian Idol season 13. In a video shared by Sony TV, Neha called the singer 'legendary Falguni ma'am'.
