Veteran music composer, also referred to as the ‘Gold Man of India’, Bappi Lahiri spoke about his love for gold ornaments and also added that it is somewhere linked with American rock star Elvis Presley, as per a report published in the Deccan Chronicle.
In Hollywood, famous singer Elvis Presley used to wear gold chains. I was a huge follower of Presley. I used to think, if I become successful someday, then I will build a different image of mine. By the grace of God, I could do it with gold. Earlier people used to think, it is just a way to show off. But it is not so. Gold is lucky for me.
The 63-year-old composer, however, believes in moving on with time. Hence he has recently given up all his gold to embrace the new age metal ‘Luminex Uno,’ which promises to be an alternative precious metal both for jewelers as well as for investors.
He further added,
This new age metal ‘Luminex Uno’ made up of gold, platinum and silver is excellent. I have never endorsed any brand, but this time I am definitely endorsing this new age metal. I am also composing a new song for ‘Luminex Uno’ which you can get to hear this Diwali.
Bappi Da’s ongoing and upcoming projects include ‘Dumadum Mast Kalandar’ which he recently recorded in LA with top singer Julia Price. He also has a song coming out next month featuring Snoop Dogg and Akon.
