When Raaj Kumar pulled Bappi Lahiri’s leg for wearing too much gold, said, ‘you only need mangalsutra’ – Times of India

Veteran singer Bappi Lahiri turned a year younger today. Apart from his chartbuster discography, the singer is also known for his love for gold.

Bappi Da, who believes that gold is lucky for him, has never made any public appearance without his jewellery. Over the years, he has been the subject of many jokes and memes on social media.

Amongst the many who have trolled Bappi da for his unusual love for the yellow metal, were also many celebrities. Late yesteryear superstar Raaj Kumar had once pulled his legs at a party. He had told the veteran singer that he has all kinds of jewellery and that he needed only mangalsutra. The comment had reportedly left Bappi upset.

Recently, a false report was doing the rounds on social media which claimed that veteran singer and musician Bappi Lahiri has lost his voice. Taking to his Instagram handle, Bappi Lahiri dismissed rumours of him losing his voice. He wrote, ‘Disheartening to learn about certain media outlets putting out false reports about me and my health.” He further added, “With the blessings of my fans and wellwishers I am doing well! Bappida.’

Lending a clarification on the entire matter, Bappa Lahiri, who flew down from Los Angeles to attend to his ailing dad in April this year, has been in Mumbai ever since. He had reportedly revealed that his father was seeking treatment for a lung ailment when he was diagnosed with the virus. According to him, the senior composer has been advised not to talk as part of the recovery process and that is why onlookers have thought he lost his voice.
