When further prodded if the makers or Neha Kakkar tried to reach out to her after seeing her Instagram stories about the remixed version, the Dandiya Queen simply said, “No."
The original song was released in 1999 and it featured television actor Vivan Bhatena. The song was played out as a puppet show in a college fest. The song was a massive hit with fans listening to it even today.
Speaking about recreating the song in a media statement, Neha had said, “I had a blast singing and filming the music video of ‘O Sajna’. With the kind of response and love the young audience showered on the teaser yesterday at the college event, I’m overjoyed! It’s fun, energetic, and vibrant and I’m confident people are going to love it.”
Tanishk Bagchi added, “With a track like ‘O Sajna’ you have to walk the fine line between reviving nostalgia yet keeping it contemporary and I’m happy with the way the song has turned out."
