Bollywood actors Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan and others paid rich tribute to the singer. “Today we lost another gem from the music industry… Bappi Da, your voice was the reason for millions to dance, including me. Thank you for all the happiness you brought through your music. My heartfelt condolences to the family. Om Shanti” wrote Akshay Kumar.

 

“I wish you joy wherever you go Bappi da because that’s what you brought to the world through your music and your being. Love always, Bidda (as you’d so endearingly call me),” wrote Vidya Balan.
