in a Bengali film titled Daadu. As music director Bappi Lahiri made his debut in Bollywood with the film Nanha Shikari (1973). But his true breakthrough came with the film Zakhmee (1975) directed by Shomu Mukherjee. In this film he worked both as a music director and playback singer. The following year he became one of the foremost composers of Bollywood for the song �Chalte chalte� (Chalte Chalte) that became a countrywide rage. In subsequent years he composed music for hit films like Disco Dancer Dance Dance Pyara Dushman and Kasam Paida Karne Wale Ki.

In many ways Bappi Lahiri introduced the rhythm based disco and techno style of music into Bollywood cinema. In his prime he worked with almost every major playback singer of his time. He was also a patron of newcomers in the industry. Famous singers like Alisha Chinai and Vijay Benedict made their debut under his baton. Often accused of blatant plagiarism his tunes were inspired by the western pop music of his time.

After a prosperous career during the 80s he retired temporarily from the industry. He made a comeback with Prakash Mehra�s Dalal. Although the song 'Chadh gaya upar re� was a hit it triggered some controversy due to its suggestive lyrics. He now works as a playback singer composer of background scores and music director. He has also done some fine pieces of remix music. In 2004 he released an album titled Bappi Magic - The Asli Baap Mix that featured remixed versions of his previous hits like �Jimmy jimmy� �Gori hai kalaiyan� etc. More recently he lent his voice in playback in the films Taxi Number 9211 and Guru.In the latter film directed by Mani Ratnam he lent his voice in the title track composed by A. R. Rahman. He is one of the judges on Zee TV�s popular show 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa�.
