Rahman’s friend is no morePublished: September 5, 2015
Only yesterday we reported that A R Rahman was worried that popular Bollywood composer Aadesh Srivastava, who was hospitalised for more than 40 days because of the relapse of cancer, was in a critical condition.
And the shocking news came today, when Aadesh breathed his last, losing his bitter battle with cancer. Many popular personalities of Bollywood have condoled the demise of the composer.
Aadesh was composer and singer. Over the course of his career, he had composed music for over 100 Hindi films. Aadesh also served as the vice-president of the Music Composers Association of India.
Aadesh was diagnosed with cancer in December 2010 and went through chemotherapy. Last month, his cancer relapsed for the third time and he was in the hospital since then.
In his message a few days ago, Rahman said, “Dear buddy Aadesh, I am devastated at hearing about your condition… Can’t come to terms with it. May God help you ease your pain…”
Aadesh’s wife Vijeta Pandit is a former Bollywood actress and the sister of the composer duo Jatin Lalit.
