Veteran singer-composer Bappi Lahiri passed away on Tuesday night.
The 69-year-old was undergoing treatment at the CritiCare Hospital in Mumbai, Indian news agency PTI reported.
"Lahiri had been admitted to the hospital for a month and was discharged on Monday. But his health deteriorated on Tuesday and his family called for a doctor to visit their home. He was brought to the hospital, Dr Deepak Namjoshi," director of the hospital, told PTI.
Bappi had multiple health issues. He died due to OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) shortly before midnight, the doctor added.
The singer-composer, a familiar figure for many with his trademark gold chains that he wore for luck and his sunglasses, was known for his songs in several films of the late 70s-80s. These included "Chalte Chalte", "Disco Dancer", and "Sharaabi".
His last Bollywood song was Bhankas for the 2020 film "Baaghi 3".
