Good songs don`t need big stars: Bappi Lahiri
Mumbai: Veteran singer-composer Bappi Lahiri says he does not believe that a big star cast is a pre-requisite for a successful song in a film.
"I don`t believe in the star cast. There was no Khan saab in `Ooh la la`, it was a simple picture. Vidya Balan-ji was there, Naseeruddin Shah was there and it became history," the 60-year-old said here Monday.
‘Ooh la la’ was sung and composed by Lahiri for the 2011-hit ‘The Dirty Picture’.
Bappi has also sung a song for a small-budget film titled ‘Maut Ka Jungle’ and is hopeful that the audience will like this song as well.
"Maybe the song of `Maut Ka Jungle` also becomes historical, no one knows that. So, I don`t believe that the song will become popular (only) if it has a big star cast," he said.
