Singers Falguni Pathak and Neha Kakkar have been trending for over a week now. It all began after Neha Kakkar released the track O Sajna, a remake of Falguni Pathak's 1999 hit song Maine Payal Hai Chhankai. For most of the week, Falguni Pathak was busy sharing screenshots of her fans criticizing the Neha Kakkar version of the track on her Instagram stories. Meanwhile, Neha Kakkar cryptically responded to all the hatred that her song received in her Instagram stories (more on that later). Now, in a surprising turn of events, Neha Kakkar, who is one of the judges on the singing reality show Indian Idol 13, welcomed Falguni Pathak for a Navratri special episode. Referring to Falguni Pathak as "legendary," Neha later did a dandiya routine with the singer.

Over the weekend, Neha Kakkar replied to her haters with these words: "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 because God himself/herself is keeping me happy." In a separate Instagram story, she wrote: "For those who're so unhappy seeing me HAPPY and successful. I feel sorry for them. Bechare. Please keep commenting I won't even delete them, coz I know and everybody knows what Neha Kakkar is."
