They were reigning the industry and it was very difficult for a new music composer to stand the competition but this magical boy Bappi Lahri came and created a different music. He created his own music which was called desi disco. And then from his music, he made music for all generations. He became one of the top music composer but with a difference. That is Bappi Lahiri. You become an icon when people imitate you. And that’s why Bappi Lahri remained an icon.”

“Shri Bappi Lahiri Ji’s music was all encompassing, beautifully expressing diverse emotions. People across generations could relate to his works. His lively nature will be missed by everyone. Saddened by his demise. Condolences to his family and admirers. Om Shanti,” PM Modiji tweeted.
