“Song ko famous karvane ke liye kya kya karte hai yeh log….Pehle social media par lad ke attention grab Karte hai Phir Ek sath TV par perform Karte hai. Kya dikhava hai yaar (what all these people do to make the song a hit, first they fight on social media to grab attention and then they perform together on TV. What a show off).”

“Ye log bas public standards ke liye karte hai (these people do everything for the public).”
Earlier, Falguni slammed Neha’s new song O Sajna on social media. She even told Delhi Times in an interview,
“I got to know about the remixed version three-four days back. The first reaction was not good. I was like, mujhe bas ulti aani baaki thi, aisa ho gaya tha. (I was about to puke, it was like that).”
She even said that she wants to take legal action against Neha, and everyone involved in this remake, but she can’t as her rights are not with her.
