Bappi Lahiri, a music composer and performer best known for his disco music in the Indian music business throughout the 1980s and 1990s, died on February 16 at Mumbai’s CritiCare Hospital. He was 69 years old and had a number of health problems.

According to PTI, Dr. Deepak Namjoshi, director of the CritiCare Hospital, said in a statement, “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. He had multiple health issues. He died due to OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) shortly before midnight.”

Bappi Lahiri was most recently seen alongside Salman Khan on the reality show Bigg Boss 15, where he was promoting his grandson Swastik’s new song “Baccha Party.”

He talked to us about a week ago, paying respect to the late vocalist Lata Mangeshkar. He said, “Many say she was the reincarnation of Mata Saraswati. I say she was sakshaat Saraswati Mata. Unko main hazaar pranaam karta hoon. In her going, I’ve lost my mother all over again. I have been in her lap when I was a toddler. When I had Covid last year, I was at Breach Candy hospital for fourteen days. Maa called my wife every day…every single day at 7 pm sharp. Even when I came home from the hospital, she was extremely concerned, especially about my voice.”

‘Chalte Chalte,’ ‘Disco Dancer,’ as well as ‘Sharaabi’ were among of Bappi Lahiri’s most well-known tunes. In 2020, he recorded ‘Bhankas’ for Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor’s film Baaghi 3.
