The veteran Bappi Lahiri reveals, “I have a very special connect with the Marathi film industry & its artistes. I started my Bollywood career in 70’s. But my claim to fame was Sunil Dutt and Asha Parekh starrer Raja Thakur’s film Zakhmi (1975). Raja Thakur was Maharashtrian filmmaker. Since then I wanted to explore myself in Marathi films. But I only got a chance to compose music for one Marathi film ‘Dokyala Taap Nahi’ way back in 1990″.

He added, “My Bollywood career kept me so busy that I didn’t get an opportunity to contribute for Marathi cinema.  But now I am debuting in Marathi as a playback singer with Sanjay Jadhav’s Lucky & I am very excited and looking forward for its response.”
