    Legendary composer and singer, the musical genius of our country, Bappi Lahiri had a difficult 2021. He was suffering from lung problems and was admitted to the ICU after testing positive for COVID-19. However, he soon recovered and returned home. Sometime back he was hospitalized once again because of multiple health issues. After almost a month, he was discharged. Sadly his health deteriorated just a day later and he returned to Mumbai’s CritiCare hospital. On Tuesday yesterday, shortly before midnight, Bappi Da breathed his last due to obstructive sleep apnea.

    The disco king’s last public appearance was on a special Weekend Ka Vaar episode of Bigg Boss season 15, where he celebrated 50 years of his musical career. He joined host Salman Khan on stage and had a gala time interacting with the contestants, who paid his a groovy musical tribute. Salman, who adores the singer and composer, had given him a warm welcome and joked that Bappi Lahiri’s name should be ‘pappi da’ because you just want to shower him with kisses! When Salman shared that Bappi Da’s real name is Alokesh, the singer revealed that his father’s name is Aparesh while his son’s name is Arunesh. Bappi Da went on to joke that the next child of the family will be named suitcase!

    During the episode, Bappi Da had introduced Salman and the contestants to his 12 year old grandson Rego B, who made his singing debut with Bachcha Party last year. Later, singer Afsana Khan, who was a contestant on the reality show, had expressed her love for Bappi Da. She had also revealed that when people see the amount of gold chains she wears, they guess that she is the composer’s daughter because of his love for gold. Before Bappi Da left, Salman sang Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and hilariously tried to steal the singer’s gold chains as they hugged.

    Despite being weak due to his health issues, the legendary singer constantly had an adorable smile on his face. It was a fun-filled episode and will go on to be one of the fondest memories of Bappi Da that his fans can remember him by.
