Bappi Lahiri scores his first Tamil song

Popular singer Bappi Lahiri has sung songs for many Hindi films produced by South India filmmakers, but he had deterred himself from crooning a song in any of South Indian languages. Now, director Prabhu Raja Cholan and composer Kannan are successful in roping in the disco king to record a song in their Tamil film Karuppampatti, starring Ajmal and Aparna Bajpai.

Prabhu Raja has confirmed that Bappida has recorded a disco song called Naughty Raja Raja… for his film Karuppampatti. The Tamil director says that Bappi has gone very choosy about his next songs after the success of his last 'Ooh La La…' Since, his voice was badly needed for this song, he requested him and made him sing it.

'Naughty Raja Raja…', which has been written by Kabilan, is set in the 1980s. It is an Elvis Presley kind of a song and only Bappi can do justice to it. The makers of the movie sent him a track of the song. The singer agreed to sing for the film after listening to the tune. Recently, Prabhu and Kannan flew down to Mumbai to record the song at a studio.
