Identity made in difficult times

Was accused of music theft

There was a time when critics accused Bappi Da’s music of plagiarism. At that time it was said that Bappi Lahiri steals foreign tunes and presents them among the people. However, these criticisms never made any difference to him. Bappi Lahiri always focused only on how he could improve his work. Perhaps this was the reason that in no time Bappi Lahiri came to be called the ‘Disco King’.
