Music composer Aadesh Shrivastava, who was battling cancer, passed away on Saturday at around 12.30am. He was 51.
Aadesh had been in Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri for over 40 days for cancer treatment.
“Aadesh Shrivastava 51 years old expired at 12.30 am on 5th September 2015 in Kokilaben Hospital due to cancer,” Dr Ram Narain of Kokilaben Hospital said.
Last evening Aadesh’s brother-in-law and composer Lalit Pandit had said, “He has been undergoing chemotherapy but he is not responding to it. So, the doctors have stopped giving him chemotherapy. They have an alternate theory. The doctors are trying to do their best and Aadesh is fighting it bravely.”
Aadesh has composed music for films like “Chalte Chalte”, “Baabul”, “Baghban”, “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham”, “Rajneeti” and others.
“Terrible. Terrible. Terrible News. Too young to Go Aadesh Shrivastava,” film director Anubhav Sinha said on Twitter.
