Veteran singer-composer Bappi Lahiri dies at 69

Composer Bappi Lahiri, known for his synthesized disco beats, died in a hospital in Mumbai last night at the age of 69. 

He had been in hospital for a month being treated for multiple health issues, reports news agency PTI. 

"Bappi Lahiri had been admitted to the hospital for a month and was discharged on Monday. But his health deteriorated on Tuesday and his family called for a doctor to visit their home. 

He was brought to the hospital. He had multiple health issues. He died due to OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) shortly before midnight," Dr Deepak Namjoshi, director of CritiCare hospital, told PTI.

Bappi Lahiri's last rites will be held at Pawan Hans Crematorium on Thursday after his son Bappa arrives from USA, reports PTI.

Tributes from Bollywood to Bappi Lahiri flooded in this morning. Akshay Kumar tweeted: "Today we lost another gem from the music industry. Bappi Da, your voice was the reason for millions to dance, including me. Thank you for all the happiness you brought through your music. My heartfelt condolences to the family. Om Shanti." 

Ajay Devgan tweeted: "Bappi Da was so endearing in person. But his music had an edge. He introduced a more contemporary style to Hindi film music with Chalte Chalte, Suraksha and Disco Dancer. Shanti Dada. You will be missed."
