Bengali folk singer Ratan Kahar says he feels great that so many people are listening to his song

Badshah recently released his new song Genda Phool, which successfully has hooked many fans to it. The song started trending on every music chart, but also called attention to the issue of plagiarism. Many Bengali fans pointed out that some of the Bengali lyrics from the song are stolen from a folk singer, known as Ratan Kahar. Now, Kahar has given an interview with IANS and expressed his opinions on the success of Genda Phool.
 
The singer said that he is happy that the song is trending. He added to his statement, saying, "It feels great that such a renowned artist has used my song and has expressed his desire to help me. I have watched his video and I liked it."
 
On a more professional note, the singer hopes for some monetary help from the immensely popular rapper Badshah. He said, "I hope Badshah will help me. I expect a little monetary help from him. I live in a poverty-stricken condition and will be glad to receive his help."
 
"It feels great that people are listening to my song. I feel so proud and happy. This song of mine has enjoyed immense popularity in so many years but only within West Bengal. I had never imagined an artist of Badshah's stature would use it. I'm happy that people everywhere else are listening to my song now. Badshah has used the track in his own style, and in a way, nobody did before, "Kahar added.
 
The folk singer is also hoping to meet Badshah and even discuss music with him. He said, "I want Badshah to visit me and talk to me. I would first like to thank him for using my song. I am also eager to discuss music with him if he has the time."
