Aadesh Shrivastava passed away

Music director Aadesh Shrivastava, who was in critical condition and undergoing treatment for cancer, passed away in Mumbai on Saturday at 12:30 am, a day after he turned 49. 

Aadesh Shrivastava was being treated at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital for the past 42 days and had been putting up a fierce fight against the disease. He had reportedly shown signs of improvement, impressing the doctors and medial specialists. 

Aadesh Shrivastava had been diagnosed with cancer five years ago. In an interview, it was revealed that the singer altered his lifestyle after his first diagnosis in 2011 and started practicing yoga. Though he did not smoke, he also quit drinking. Burdened with financial troubles due to heavy medical bills, Aadesh apparently had to sell his hummer in order to get things back on track. His body is being kept at Kokilaben hospital as of now. The funeral will take place today at 12:30 pm at Oshiwara Crematorium, Andheri West. Aadesh, who rose to fame with his musical compositions for films like ‘Chalte Chalte’, ‘Baabul’, ‘Baghban’, ‘Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham…’ and ‘Rajneeti’ among others, also sang a number of songs including ‘Sona sona’, ‘Shava shava’, ‘Gustakhiyaan’ and ‘Gur nalon ishq mitha’.
