Bappi Lahiri, one of the most famous music composers-singers in the Hindi film industry, passed away in February 2022 at the age of 69. His son Bappa Lahiri recently shared details about the biopic of the veteran composer, revealing that his late father always wanted Ranveer Singh to portray him in his biopic.
While speaking with a leading news channel, Bappa Lahiri shared that he and his father had a couple of meetings with the producer three-four years back, and then, the ‘Disco King’ wished for Ranveer to portray him in his biopic as he loved Ranveer Singh. Bappa further added that they haven’t approached Ranveer Singh yet.
Bappa Lahiri mentioned in the same interview that his family is getting a lot of offers about his father’s biopic but they first need to finish the writing and pre-production work. Talking about his dad’s choice, Bappa said to the portal, “Ranveer has the same qualities as my dad and he knows his music. He is a big fan of dad and really respects him. So ideally, even if you ask me, I think he would be perfect to play Bappi Lahiri.”
