After the arrival of his son Bappa and his family from Los Angeles, Bappi Da’s mortal remains were taken from his residence to Vile Parle cremation ground. He was then laid to rest according to Hindu traditions.

On February 15, Bappi Lahiri left for his heavenly abode at the age of 69 in a Mumbai hospital. The legendary singer died due to multiple health complications and OSA (obstructive sleep apnea).

Talking about Bappi Da’s final moments, his son-in-law Gobind Bansal shared, “He had been admitted in the hospital for three weeks but was discharged and was back home. He also had his dinner last night at around 8:30-9 pm. But within half an hour of having his dinner, he got a heart attack. His pulse rate had gotten low. He was rushed to the hospital and the doctors declared at 11:44 that he is no more.”

As soon as the news of Bappi Da’s demise broke, fans, friends and colleagues from the film industry mourned the loss and offered their condolences to the bereaved family. Prime Minister Narendra Modi too prayed for the departed soul along with other celebrities including Akshay Kumar, Raveena Tandon, Ajay Devgn, Subhash Ghai, Siddharth Malhotra, Anupam Kher among others.
