Bappi Lahiri will live on in our hearts forever. The entire country has been in grief since his passing on February 15th. At the age of 69, the veteran singer-composer died in a Mumbai hospital on Tuesday. Meanwhile, admirers have been commemorating him on social media today by sharing his music. In the midst of all of this, we came across an old interview of Bappi da in which he expresses his desire for Ranveer Singh to play his younger self in his biopic.
Bappi Lahiri told IANS in 2019 that he has been approached by a number of people about making a film about his life, but he has yet to make a decision. He said, “Yes, a lot of people are approaching me to make a film on my life but I haven’t finalised anything. The biopic should start by this year.”
Bappi da went on to add that he would like to see Ranveer Singh play his younger self in the biopic. “Actor Ranveer Singh could probably play my younger version…you know the 1970s, 80′ and 90s time,” he added.
