Bappi Lahiri dubs for Elton John
The singer-composer has dubbed for the popular popstar in the Hindi version of The Kingsman: The Golden Circle
Popular singer-composer Bappi Lahiri has dubbed for Elton John's part in the Hindi version of the Hollywood film The Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The latter has a special appearance in the Fox Star Studios film, where he plays himself. Bappi has dubbed for this part.
Bappi said in a statement: "When Fox approached me to dub for Elton John, I just lapped it up. This was an offer I could not refuse. It is an absolute honour for me to dub for such a big legend. The beauty is that we both are so similar, our style, our dressing, the way we sing... I had a great time dubbing for him."
Action spy film The Kingsman: The Golden Circle includes actors like Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry and Channing Tatum.
Bappi says while he can't divulge much regarding John's role, he feels that "even though he (Elton John) has a small role, he is one of the key characters in the film."
