Veteran singer-composer Bappi Lahiri says he does not believe that a big star cast is a pre-requisite for a successful song in a film.

“I don’t believe in the star cast. There was no Khan saab in Ooh la la. Vidya Balan-ji was there, Naseeruddin Shah was there and it became history,” says the 60-year-old.

Ooh la la was sung and composed by Lahiri for the 2011-hit The Dirty Picture. Bappi has also sung a song for a small-budget film.
