They have done it with all respects, for which I am very happy. They have recreated it by keeping Dada’s melody and rhythm intact. Hats off!”
Rema also recalled how Lahiri brought the disco genre in Bollywood. “When he was in New York in 1979, he went to a discotheque; there were no clubs back then. He saw everyone dancing with lights and to the discs. He got inspired to know what exactly this is. It was his first time in America. He thought of bringing this innovative type of music in India. And the story of Disco Dancer was also perfect to try this type of music,” she said.
Disco Dancer – The Musical will be staged from April 14 to 23 at the NSCI Dome in Worli, Mumbai.
