Bollywood composer-singer Bappi Lahiri, who recently crooned for upcoming Tamil movie Karuppampatti, learnt the song in just 10 minutes, says the film’s music composer.
“We wanted a disco song to suit the period flavour of the film and, therefore, approached Bappi sir for the song. After he agreed to do the song, we met him at his studio in Mumbai, where he got the song written in Bengali and learnt it in about 10 minutes,” composer Kannan said.
“What surprised me the most is that we recorded the song in about four hours. It is amazing how someone who doesn’t know the language can learn a song in it in a jiffy and record it in a few hours,” he added.
The disco song titled Disco Naughty Naughty Raja also marks 40 years of Bappi Lahiri in the industry.
The romantic comedy, directed by debutant Prabhu Raja Cholan, features Ajmal Ameer in the lead opposite Aparnaa Bajpai and Alice Tantardini. It also features Archana, M.S. Bhaskar, Jagan, Srinath and Devadarshini.
Sundar K. of Sundar Picture has produced the film, which is slated to release soon.
