At the launch, Biddu spoke about his journey from being a musician and a producer in Bollywood, to now becoming an author. From Kung Fu Fighting (which sold nine million copies when it released a few decades ago) to the iconic youth anthem Made in India (sung by Alisha Chinai, remember her?) and the numerous hits in-between, Biddu has had a remarkable and mind blowing journey.
