Mumbai: Singer, composer and India‘s original disco king Bappi Lahiri was the talk of the town in Bollywood Gossip circles with his amazing weight loss. The well rounded singer finally took it upon himself to get his weight under check after rendering his latest hit in “The Dirty Picture“.
Bappi Da as he is affectionately called by his fans, is the pioneer of synthesized disco and pop in Indian cinema and has rendered several hits with notable mentions of Disco Dancer, Chalte Chalte, Namak Halal, Sharabi, Himmatwala and Jindagi ek Jua. Bappi’s music transcended generations but his fans also know him for something else; his love and passion for Gold and his unique way to flaunt the priceless possessions.
Under supervision of his doctors and nutritionists, Bappi Da embarked on his weight loss program, one chain at a time. Dr Motwani from the Hinduja Hospital briefed reporters and explained, “This is a complex procedure like Liposuction. Sudden weight loss can have adverse reactions on the heart and circulatory systems. Each chain is about .5 Kg in wight and the singer has been carrying these on his shoulders since 1972. We are happy to report that we have now successfully removed 18 chains resulting in total loss of 12 Kilos in one week. Bappi Da is recuperating well and even ordered Butter Scotch ice cream and Black Forest Cake to celebrate the occasion”.
Like all weight loss programs the important thing that remains to be seen is if Bappi can resist putting the chains back on and keep this weight off.
Only time will tell.
