After Ooh La La, the king of disco is back. As Disco King DK, Bappi Lahiri is now playing himself in Dhumketu Punatar’s musical comic caper. It’s Rocking Dard-E-Disco, directed by Ashok Tyagi. The film sees Bappi da in a lovable role of DK aka Disco King who gets kidnapped for his gold. And instead of being worried at the kidnapping, DK takes it upon himself to give the villain’s adda an architectural makeover. And is supported in this task by the villain’s cronies who are his diehard fans.
For the film, Bappi da has chosen to bring back to life his oldtime hit Yaad Aar aha Hai. And with it, another superlative number that the veteran composer feels will be the chartbuster after Ooh La La.
Titled Boka Chor, the song will be premiered on December 25 on youtube by Saregama, which has acquired the worldwide music rights of the film. An interesting number that aims to touch the chord across the country bringing in the disco very back!, Boka Chor has multi-lingual lyrics… there in Hindi, English, Bengali and Tamil. Boka Chor is a very sweet song that talks of how when one does not get his love, he should simply go in for Dard-E-Disco.
Dhumketu Punatar says, “Bappi da was very enthusiastic to record a song after Ooh La La. And Boka Chor from Dard-E-Disco that is ready to release, was a very interesting number. And I felt we should go in for the making on youtube as Bappi da’s songs are youthful and more than touch a chord with youngsters.”
Bappi da adds, “it is four decades since I entered the film industry as composer. And it is the love of the people that has kept me going. I was touched by the response to Ooh La La and it was a shocker when Victoria’s Secret used my song or their rampwalk even! Now, I look forward to the same love from my audiences of Boka Chor.”
The video goes thus… Asrani questions Bappi da on why he is a ailure in love. And Bappi da tells him that it is because he is a “…boka chor, boka chor, boka chor, dil ka chor… nee oru muttaal…”
Bappi da admits that he is influenced by his uncle Kishore Kumar. “Kishore da is a great inspiration. I am not even one-tenth of him in acting, but I wanted to make audiences laugh like him in this film with my humour. And this is my tribute to Kishore da,” says emotional Bappi da.
Here is looking forward to Bappi da’s Boka Chor Christmas gift hitting youtube this December 25. The music of Dard-D-Disco is with Saregama. And as we read this, there is one more Bappi da chartbuster that is hitting the movies as a remix… Check it out…
