“It’s a very bad attitude by those who can’t respect their elders. Whoever has written this dialogue is a zero,” said a visibly hurt veteran musician Bappi Lahiri in a Bollywood Hungama exclusive interview with Faridoon Shahryar today. Bappi Lahiri refused to even listen to the contentious dialogue in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil that has enraged a huge number of Mohammed Rafi fans all across the world. Bappi said that stalwarts like Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar (whom he referred to as Maa Sarasvati), janaab Rafi Sahab, Manna Dey, Asha Bhosle, Mukesh ji etc should never be made fun of.
Bappi Lahiri said that he travels all across the world but he believes that the culture of younger generation touching the feet of their elders is a noble action and we should not forget our values. “If we stop respecting out seniors, our elders then we are not Indians,” Bappi ji said.
Here’s famous musician Bappi Lahiri confessing his feelings about the Mohammed Rafi dialogue that has hurt him so deeply.
