Bappi Lahiri`s tribute to uncle Kishore Kumar

Mumbai: Composer Bappi Lahiri has a full-fledged role in the movie "It`s Rocking Dard-E-Disco" and says that he has dedicated it to his late maternal uncle and legendary singer-actor Kishore Kumar.

"I have acted before in films like `Main Aurr Mrs Khanna`, `Om Shanti Om`, `Kalakaar` and those were guest appearances. But complete acting I have done in this film. I did acting for my mamaji, Kishore Kumar. I have dedicated my acting in this film to Kishore Kumarji," the 59-year-old said here in an interview.

"Everyone has seen his comedy, his style, how he used to talk and I have tried to imitate him a bit. `It`s Rocking Dard-E-Disco` is a gift from me as an actor to all my fans who love me," he added.

Bappi said the film carries a message.

"There is a good message for the world through the film. It`s not like that a film has been made and disco has been added with some songs and finished. No, it has a good message," Bappi said.

Bappi Lahiri is famous for his compositions in films like "Disco Dancer", "Thanedaar", "Saheb", "Namak Halaal", "Taxi No. 9211" ("Bambai Nagariya"), "The Dirty Picture" ("Ooh la la la") among others.
