Veteran singer-composer Bappi Lahiri says he does not believe that a big star cast is a pre-requisite for a successful song in a film.

"I don't believe in the star cast. There was no Khan saab in 'Ooh la la', it was a simple picture. Vidya Balan-ji was there, Naseeruddin Shah was there and it became history," the 60-year-old said here Monday.

"Ooh la la" was sung and composed by Lahiri for the 2011-hit "The Dirty Picture".

Bappi has also sung a song for a small-budget film titled "Maut Ka Jungle" and is hopeful that the audience will like this song as well.

"Maybe the song of 'Maut Ka Jungle' also becomes historical, no one knows that. So, I don't believe that the song will become popular (only) if it has a big star cast," he said.
