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.
