Exclusive! Bappi Lahiri Health Update: “He has had a lung problem since a year but now getting better,” son Bappa reveals – Times of India


It started with COVID but appears the legendary singer-music composer Bappi Lahiri is on his method to restoration from a lung problem as effectively, which he has been nursing since a year. Bappida (as he’s fondly known as) continues to be within the ICU of Breach Candy Hospital combating COVID but getting higher particularly since this morning. “He’s having his tea, he’s talking and we are in touch with him on the phone. It all began with symptoms of cold and a precautionary COVID test. We were very worried for him and Mom too when he tested positive; luckily neither Mom nor anybody else in the house has been infected,” Bappida’s son Bappa, who landed in Mumbai not too long ago, tells ETimes.

Contrary to studies that Bappa had flown down from the US as a result of Bappida had taken unwell, Bappa clarifies, “It was purely incidental that Dad tested positive soon after I landed in Mumbai. I had no idea about this when I took off from the States. Actually I had checked into a hotel and decided to stay there for a week to protect my parents from a risk of contracting any infection as I had just travelled. Almost as soon as I entered the hotel, I got to know about Dad.”

Bappa additional mentioned that his father has been having a pulmonary (lung) problem since a year now. That’s the rationale why Bappida’s voice has modified of late. “He often gets cold which accumulates in his throat,” Bappa added.

Also, Bappida has began speaking to his household on video calls. This morning, he needed to listen to music on his cellphone. More on the excellent news that Bappida is getting higher is the truth that the physician treating him at Breach Candy Hospital is the highest Pulmonary Specialist, Dr Farokh Udwadia. So now, maybe, both- COVID and the pulmonary issue- shall be handled by the identical physician. Actually, Bappi Lahiri’s household had tried to get him admitted in Lilavati Hospital but there was no emptiness. “Dr Udwadia is an amazing doctor,” Bappa concluded.
