Famous Indian musician and composer Bappi Lahiri dies in Mumbai.

According to news agency PTI, the veteran singer suffered from multiple ailments before taking his last breath at Mumbai’s CritiCare Hospital in Zhuhu on Tuesday. He is 69 years old.

Dr Deepak Namjoshi, director of the hospital, evaluated: “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,” 

Lahiri, also known as Bappi Da, is known for writing songs for films including Disco Dancer, Himmatwala, Sharaabi, Tarzan, Dance Dance, Satyamev Jayate, Commando, Aaj Ke Shahenshah, Thanedaar, Numbri Aadmi and Shola Aur Shabnam.

The news of his demise comes after rumours spread in September about his deteriorating health.

“I am shocked to see so many reports stating that I’ve lost my voice. It’s ridiculous and I’m really unhappy,” he denied all the hearsay at that time.
