Former India skipper and star batter Virat Kohli also condoled the demise of Lahiri. “A icon of the Indian music industry. Bappi Lahiri you will be missed. May you RIP,” Kohli tweeted.

With his trademark gold chains that he wore for luck and his sunglasses, Bappi Lahiri was known for his songs in several films of the late 70s-80s. “Very sad to hear about Bappi da.. your songs were always played in our dressing rooms.. #RIPbhappida Condolences to family and friends ..

But his health deteriorated on Tuesday and his family called for a doctor to visit their home, following which he was brought to the hospital. He had multiple health issues. He died due to OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) last night,” Dr Deepak Namjoshi was quoted as saying by PTI.
