I just sang a song which was programmed by him so beautifully two days back!  Just can’t come to terms with this !! Love you brother ... miss you.”

Aditya Paudwal, who was a music arranger and producer talked about his mother in an earlier interview. He had said, "She has made a mark in devotional music. People still get moved by her performances. I have seen people's lives changing after listening to her devotional 'aartis' and 'mantras'. I would like to come up with a composition for my mother."

Aditya composed 'Thackeray' song. 

"When I was working with (composers) Rohan-Rohan on a Marathi film's score, they had mentioned to me about this song which they wanted on a epic scale with symphonic kind of an arrangement. This song basically shows the journey of Balasaheb Thackeray," he had said.
