Bappi Lahiri was often known as the disco king or the golden composer for his love for shiny metal. While it shows how the legendary man is still relevant in this day and age of auto-tune arrangements, it also overshadows the fact that Lahiri was more than that. We often remember his Disco Dancer songs or the ones that use heavy instruments. But Bappi Lahiri has composed songs that are milder, heart-touching and extremely moving. So today, we decided to let the softer composer win over the disco dancer. Govinda Remembers Bappi Lahiri, Says 'Would Have Never Become a Star Without Bappi Da's Songs'.
