Bappi Lahiri, who composed songs for movies such as Disco Dancer, Himmatwala, among others, died at the age of 69 on February 15.
Bappi Lahiri’s grandson Swastik Bansal recently led an emotional tribute for the late singer. In his tribute, Swastik sang Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, which was one of the biggest hits composed by Bappi Lahiri. The song was originally sung by Kishore Kumar and featured in the 1976 film Chalte Chalte. Also Read| Bappi Lahiri’s grandson Swastik Bansal shares throwback pic, says: ‘Miss you so much dadu’.

In a new video released from the Mirchi Music Awards that were held in Mumbai on March 8, Swastik Bansal can be seen performing the popular song. For the tribute, he was joined on the stage by his mother Rema Lahiri, Bappi’s daughter. Singer Sonu Nigam was also present on the stage.
Swastik started singing as a collage of pictures of the late singer-composer appeared on the screen on the stage. The clip showed Rema tearing up as she heard the song. Swastik also broke down towards the end of his performance and hugged singer Sonu Nigam. It was Sonu who completed the rest of the song as the audience members stood up to pay respect to Bappi.
