After being the music king for over more than two decades, Bappi Lahiri is now set to become a director. Bappi had earlier helmed a documentary “Slumstars”, but his new project will be in the fiction space. It is titled “Ek Adhura Sangeet”.
“I always think I should keep doing something different every year. This time, I will begin a big journey as a director of a feature film. It’s a huge journey,” Bappi told the media houses over a recorded response from Mumbai.
On “Ek Adhura Sangeet”, he said: “Like the song ‘Zindagi mera gaana, main isi ka deewana… I am a disco dancer’… Without music, people’s lives are incomplete… Music can bring happiness in life. So, this is a journey that I am beginning.”
He said the subject of his film is “very good”.
“After doing 600 films across Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Tamil, Oriya and Gujarati languages, I have gained a lot of experience. So, I thought I should give it a try. Maybe it does well. My wife Chitrani had produced ‘Lal Darja’ which won a National Award in 1997… Whatever film I make, it won’t be average. I can’t say it will be superhit, but nobody will say it’s a bad film. I am confident I will make a good film, whether it works or not,” said Bappi. Bappi also hinted at doing “something” in Hollywood.
Well, we hope that the new venture brings more fame and success to Bappi Lahiri.
