Being Asked to Dub For Elton is ''Honour'' For Lahiri

Written by Chief Editor.

Veteran singer/composer Bappi Lahiri has dubbed for Sir Elton in the Hindi version of Fox Star Studios' upcoming spy-action film Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

As announced earlier, the Rocket Man is making a special appearance in the movie, which also features Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Taron Egerton, Halle Berry and Channing Tatum.

"When Fox approached me to dub for Elton John's role, I just lapped it up. This was an offer I could not refuse. "It is an absolute honour for me to dub for Elton who is such a big legend. The beauty is that we both are so similar, our style, our dressing, the way we sing. In fact, a lot of times, people confuse me for Elton when I am travelling abroad," Lahiri said in a statement.

He had a great time dubbing and says that while Elton's part isn't big, it ''will leave an impact on you. He is hilarious in the film.''

Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be released in India on the 22nd of September.

It will also be dubbed in Tamil and Telugu.
