After ‘Maine Payal Hai Chhankai’ remix row, Neha Kakkar & Falguni Pathak to appear on 'Indian Idol 13'

Neha Kakkar’s recently released song ‘O Sajna’, a remix of Falguni Pathak’s ‘Maine Payal Hai Chhankai’ sparked controversy and many slammed Neha for ‘ruining’ the original version. The singers will now share stage on ‘Indian Idol 13’.

Singers Neha Kakkar and Falguni Pathak made headlines as they engaged in war of words over the former’s recently released song ‘O Sajna’. The song which is a remix of Falguni’s iconic song ‘Maine Payal Hai Chhankai’ received a lot of criticism on social media for ‘ruining’ the original version.

After their online feud, the singers will be seen sharing the stage on the singing reality show ‘Indian Idol’ season 13. The new promo was shared by Sony on Sunday which shows the duo featuring in a Navratri special episode. Falguni is seen singing garba songs, while judges Neha Kakkar, Himesh Reshammiya and host Aditya Narayan play dandiya around her.

The war of words is now being called a ‘publicity stunt’ by viewers.

In a recent interview with India Today, veteran singer Anup Jalota talked about how remixes affect the melody of the original song and the original singer.

Defending Falguni, he said, ‘Whenever there is a remix, it should not touch the melody of the original song. Legally you are protected because nobody can file a case. At least, don’t spoil the melody of the song.’

The singer also praised Neha Kakkar and her work and said that she does not need remixes to get shortcut fame.

‘She has already earned the fame. She might have done it to pursue a wish,’ Anup Jalota told India Today.

Earlier, Falguni Pathak expressed her disappointment over the remix by reposting fans’ angry reactions on her Instagram handle. In a recent interview, she also mentioned that the original song's innocence has been ruined and she was ‘almost about to puke’ when she first heard the remake.

Meanwhile, Neha Kakkar too addressed the backlash through social media posts and wrote, ‘If talking in such a manner, saying such bad things about me, abusing me.. makes them feel good and if they think it will ruin my day. Then I’m sorry to inform them that I’m too blessed to have bad days. This God’s child is always happy coz God himself is keeping me happy.’
