Bollywood singer Neha Kakkar is currently receiving flak on social media for remaking dandiya queen Falguni Pathak’s iconic song ‘Maine Payal Hai’. So much so that, Pathak wishes she could take legal action against Kakkar.
The 53-year-old singer told PinkVilla that she is happy to see her fans’ love for the original song, which was originally released in 1999.
“I feel overwhelmed and touched on receiving so much love from all over for the song, so I had to share their feelings,” Pathak said.
Pathak also shared that she wasn’t approached by the makers of ‘O Sajna’, Kakkar’s version of the song.
According to Pinkvilla, Pathak re-shared a story by her fan that asked her to sue Kakkar.
Asked if she is planning on taking the legal route, Pathak said: “I wish I could but the rights are not with me.”
When further asked if the makers or Kakkar tried to reach out to her after seeing her Instagram stories, Falguni said: “No.”
