There has been some negative press surrounding singer Neha Kakkar’s O Sajna cover of Falguni Pathak’s classic Maine Payal Hai Chhankai. When the original singer’s discontent with the remix wasn’t made clear enough on her Instagram stories by the followers, she herself joined in with a scathing troll assault.
Dhanashree Verma and Priyank Sharma are the song’s featured singers in Neha Kakkar’s rendition. In a recent interview with Mid-Day, Dhanashree recalled how much she enjoyed Falguni Pathak’s rendition of “Maine Payal Hai Chhankai” when she was a kid. “We were thrilled when we learned it was actually happening. We have no doubt that a new version of this song would be well received.
Neha, Tanishk Bagchi, and Jaani, the composers, have improved upon it. They have made an argument in favor of their original plan. That’s why I’m so ecstatic right now “to which she responded.
In addition to being the wife of Indian cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal, Dhanashree Verma is a choreographer whose dance videos frequently go viral on social media. Priyank Sharma, formerly of Bigg Boss, most recently appeared in Puncch Beat 2.
Singers Neha Kakkar and Falguni Pathak will perform together on the set of Indian Idol 13 despite their past feud. It just so happens that this episode is the Navratri edition.
