Bappi Lahiri Dies At 69

Bappi Lahiri dies in Mumbai Hospital at the age of 69. The composer-singer is famous for the songs ‘Chalte Chalte’, ‘Disco Dancer’, and ‘Sharaabi’. He popularized disco in India in the ’80s and ’90s. He died at Mumbai’s CritiCare Hospital today.

“Lahiri had been admitted to the hospital for a month and was discharged on Monday. But his health deteriorated on Tuesday and his family called for a doctor to visit their home. He was brought to the hospital. Mr. Lahiri had multiple health issues. He died due to OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) shortly before midnight,” Dr. Deepak Namjoshi, director of the hospital said.

The singer’s last appearance on the screen was with Salman Khan on a reality show Bigg Boss 15, where he was promoting his grandson Swastik’s new song ‘Baccha Party’.

“Today we lost another gem from the music industry… Bappi Da, your voice was the reason for millions to dance, including me. Thank you for all the happiness you brought through your music. My heartfelt condolences to the family. Om Shanti” wrote Akshay Kumar.

Veteran actor Chiranjeevi posted a throwback with the legend and wrote: “Deeply anguished at the demise of legendary music director and singer Bappi Lahiri. I had a great association with Bappi da. He gave numerous chartbusters for me, which contributed immensely to my film’s popularity. He will always be remembered for his unique style and his great enthusiasm for life which is reflected in his music. My heartfelt condolences to all his near and dear.”

“I wish you joy wherever you go Bappi da because that’s what you brought to the world through your music and your being. Love always, Bidda (as you’d so endearingly call me),” wrote Vidya Balan.
