Bappi Lahiri croons for Gunday!

Yash Raj Films’ forthcoming drama Gunday –starring Arjun Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh in the lead role, will have a full-fledged Bengali number

No, we are not talking about a smattering of Bengali peppered over a hindi number. In fact, Yash Raj Film’s upcoming movie Gunday, will feature a full song in Bangla.

Composed by talented Sohail Sen, the Bangla number has been sung by none other than Bappi Lahiri, and is being touted as a full-on masti number. Lahiri, who turned 61 this week, maintains that he had a rollicking time crooning the Gunday song in Bengali. “It’s not often that one gets to sing in one’s mother tongue in a Hindi film. The Gunday song was great fun,” said the veteran singer in an interview

Bappida has also composed the music and sung a song in a film called Chahe Mujhe Koi Junglee Kahe. “It’s produced by the newly-revived Bombay Talkies productions and is directed by Johnny Walker’s son Nassir. It’s great fun to be working with so many young people. I may be 61 but I don’t feel old,” he added.
