Aadesh Srivastava passes away, Bollywood mourns


Music composer Aadesh Srivastava passes away after battling for cancer for the second time. Cancer revisited the music composer for the second time and he fought bravely for the last 44 days at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri before giving up to the dreaded disease.

“Mr 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 informed, “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.”

Noted for music for films like “Chalte Chalte”, “Baabul”, “Baghban”, “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham”, “Rajneeti” and many more, Bollywood mourns the death of the noted music composer .
