Playback singers Neha Kakkar and Falguni Pathak have been in the headlines for their ugly spat ever since the former released the song ‘O Sajna’- which is a recreation of the popular number ‘Maine Payal Hai Chhankai. Soon after the remix version was released, Neha received strong criticism not just from fans but also from Falguni, who said she was “about to puke” when she first heard Kakkar’s song ‘O Sajna’. In fact, Pathak could have sued her if she would have its rights.
Yes, you read that right! In an interview with Pinkvilla, Falguni Pathak slammed the revamped version of her iconic song. She was quoted saying, “I wish I could but the rights are not with me.” She also revealed that Neha did not even reach out to her after her song was released. Pathak also pointed out that remixes are happening in the industry but they should be done in a decent way. ALSO READ: Falguni Pathak Takes U-turn Amid Feud With Neha Kakkar?

“Don’t change the originality of the song. I don’t think I need to do anything; my fans are taking action against the song. I am just sharing the stories. Why should I keep quiet when they are supporting me, main kaise chup baithun,” Falguni added.
The original song was a hit when it was released in 1999 and featured Vivan Bhatena and Nikhila Palat. Directed by Radhika Rao, the song is still loved by the masses even after so many years due to its freshness and Pathak’s sweet voice and indeed it has been everyone’s favourite since childhood days.
