Falguni Pathak on Neha Kakkar remixing her song ‘Maine Payal Hai Chhankai’: “Can’t sue her. I have no rights on the song”

Falguni Pathak is remembered even today for her iconic classic ‘Maine Pyar hai Chhankai’ which was released in 1999. Singer Neha Kakkar remixed the song, aiming to give a fresh touch to this old classical song. The makers expected to impress the people with it, but something else happened. They disappointed the loyal audience, who are die-hard fans of this classic track.

The singer of the original version, Falguni Pathak, commented on Neha’s new version titled ‘O Sajna’. She has addressed the criticism of the song’s recreation, which said that Neha must be sued.

Here’s What Falguni Pathak Said

In a recent conversation, Falguni Pathak said, “I can’t sue Neha as T-Series holds control over the original version, which had my vocals. They didn’t consult me before the new version was released.” She said to the news portal, Pinkvilla, “I’m overwhelmed and feel touched to get this amount of love from everywhere for my song, so I had to share what I feel.”

When asked if she had thought of taking legal action, she said, “I wish I could, but the rights to the song aren’t with me.”

Falguni had also shared the fans’ reaction to Neha Kakkar’s version

A few days after the song’s release, Falguni shared comments from fans supporting her. Fans called it disrespectful and shameful to copy the legendary singer. One user told Neha to make fresh content using her brain and art rather than attempting to gross money from already available stuff. Another comment said, “Band kardo ye paap karna. “Please, anybody, ban these autotune singers and their remakes! LOL.” One fan also asked Falguni to sue Neha, “Like, WTF? Neha Kakkar, thanks again for s**ting on one of my favourite classics.”

The old version, released in 1999 starred TV actor Vivan Bhatena, and Nikhila Palat.
