When singer Alisha Chinai was offered a song by music composers Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani at an unreasonably low price, she asked the duo to f**k off. Alisha's loss became Sunidhi Chauhan's gain.

The singer, who has been out of work for a while now, told Mid Day: "Yes, Vishal-Shekhar did offer me a number very recently. I asked them what they're paying. When I heard the sum, I almost laughed out loud. Really, how long are we playback singers going to be treated so shabbily? I've had just about enough. I've no songs on hand at the moment, but I'd rather be without work than without my self-respect. So yeah, I told Vishal-Shekhar very clearly that I'm not interested in their song or the fame. I told them to tell their producers to pay me what I deserve or f**k off."

Alisha has songs like Made In India, Kajra Re, It's Rocking, Tinka Tinka and more to her credit. "I won't sell myself out for a pittance. If you can't pay me what I deserve, then f**k you. I guess I will become a producer and then exploit the hell out of everyone," she added.

Vishal lashed back at the singer calling her delusional. "I feel really bad saying this, but the poor lady is delusional and needs help. I mean this with all sincerity. God bless her," he told the tabloid.

We wonder what was the amount offered!
