‘Raat Baaqi’ was an influential part of my childhood playing often in nearby basti where I once lived. In my teenage fantasies of being a director – sigh – I had dreamt my 1st film named after da song. #BappiLahiri effect cant be missed on kids of my era. Rest in peace #DiscoKing— Sreeju Sudhakaran (@sree_thru_me) February 16, 2022
