Bappi Lahiri says he isn’t going to be upset with the makers of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

Musician Bappi Lahiri is not upset with filmmaker Karan Johar for making fun of him in his Diwali release, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Lahiri says that the “makers don’t know anything about music” and doesn’t want to even acknowledge their comments.

In one scene in the film, Ranbir changes the lyrics of Bappi’s hit song Taaki O Taaki to Tacky O Tacky. “Bura kyu lagega. Main hun kaun bura manne wala? ( Why will I be feel bad? Who am I to feel bad),” Lahiri asks. “The makers openly disrespected Mohd. Rafi Sahab, who is considered a god in the industry. I am nothing compared to him. It’s pretty clear that these people don’t know anything about music, so you can’t be upset with such people.”

The 63-year-old’s son, Bappa Lahiri had earlier demanded an apology from Johar for being “insensitive”, but Lahiri, who has been in the industry for more than three decades, is unfazed. “There’s nothing to say. It’s clear that they can’t respect their seniors or their work. If they can be so insensitive, being upset with them is of no use.”
