Chennai, Feb 21 (IANS) Bollywood music composer-singer Bappi Lahiri said Thursday that he has so many memorable experiences in Chennai and considers the city very lucky for him.

"Chennai is a very safe place and whenever I come here I don't bring along my entourage because the people here have always been very friendly," added Lahiri at the launch of his first Tamil number "Disco Naughty Naughty Raja" from the upcoming romantic-comedy "Karuppampatti".

The 60-year old also said that he has completed 40 years in the industry with this Tamil song.

He has composed music for several Telugu films such as "Gang Leader", "Nippu Ravva", "Rowdy Alludu" among many more.
