Bappi Lahiri, a music composer and vocalist who pioneered disco music in India during the 1980s and 1990s, passed away today in Mumbai’s CritiCare Hospital. He died aged 69.

Lahiri had been in the hospital for a month before being released on Monday. On Tuesday, however, his health started to deteriorate, and his family requested that a doctor come to their home. He was taken to a hospital. He was suffering from a variety of ailments. He passed shortly before midnight due to OSA (obstructive sleep apnea), said Dr Deepak Namjoshi, the hospital’s director.

Bappi da, as he was affectionately known, got B-town dancing to his hit disco tracks such as Chalte Chalte, Disco Dancer, and Sharaabi.

‘Bhankas,’ which was part of the music for the Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor-starrer ‘Baaghi 3,’ was his last track for a Bollywood movie.

After being confirmed with Covid-19 last year, the musician was hospitalised at Mumbai’s Breach Candy hospital. He recovered quickly, however, and was soon dismissed.

“Mr Bappi Lahiri has tested positive for Covid 19 despite taking all measures. At the Breach Candy Hospital, he is receiving excellent care. Bappi dada’s family is urging anyone who has recently come in contact with him just to get examined as a cautionary step “In a statement, a representative stated.

The trend started with replication of my old classic song Tamma Tamma in Badrinath Ki Dulhania, he stated of the tendency of remaking old masterpieces. I’m not going to say anything about it. The public’s choice is the most important. My entire life revolves around the public, he said in an interview with the sources. 

Himmatwala, Sharaabi, Adventures of Tarzan, Satyamev Jayate, Commando, Aaj Ke Shahenshah, Thanedaar, Numbri Aadmi, and Shola Aur Shabnam are among the films for which he composed music. Zakhmee was the singer-first composer’s huge B-town hit composition.
