Singer Neha Bhasin has applauded back at a savage who blamed her for going ‘nude’ to advance her new single, Kehnde Rehnde. He had asked during a Q&A meeting on Instagram, “Ur song abt society is good ...bt why are you promoting nude ?? M not understanding.”
Neha hit back with a video message: “Bhaisaab, ladka gaata hai ‘naach meri rani’, ‘naach meri laila’, ‘tu chocolate hai’, ‘tu sabzi bazaar hai’… Lekin ladki agar khud apni body ko bolti hai I love my body, toh isme buraai kya hai (Brother, men sing lyrics such as ‘dance, my queen’, ‘you are my chocolate’, ‘you are my vegetable market’… So when a woman sings about loving her body, what is the problem)?”
At the point when a fan commended Neha for upholding body energy with her new tune, she stated, “Yes, it does, and that is why I did not make the effort to have the most chiselled body this time. (I’m) owning it…owning my Punjabi genes, the food that I ate during the quarantine, my curves and saying I love myself!”
As per the YouTube depiction of Kehnde Rehnde, it is ‘beyond a song, it is a collective sentiment of calling out the accepted culture of trolling, moral policing, gender bias and suffocating and gagging anyone who is not in line with the mass point of view’.

During the lockdown, Neha rejoined with the individuals from her previous band Viva – Anushka Manchanda, Mahua Kamat and Pratichee Mohapatra – to reproduce their hit single Jaago Zara. The video was taken shots at their particular homes.
Discussing how their get-together came to fruition, Neha disclosed to Hindustan Times that somebody shared an image of the melody during the lockdown and they all remarked on it. They all jumped on a phone call and thought back about bygone eras.
“It was probably also because the lockdown slowed all of us down, and reminded us of things that meant something at one point. Then we said why not do it for fans. Though there are no plans for us to get back together, it could be a little gift of sorts, and also a way to say thank you, because our exit was so abrupt, and we never got a chance to connect with fans and moved on,” she had said.
