Music composer Aadesh Srivastava succumbs to cancer It was a sad Janmashtami for Bollywood this year as talented music composer and singer Aadesh Srivastava succumbed to cancer on September 5. He had just turned 49 on September 4. Aadesh had been bravely battling the disease since it was first diagnosed in 2010. It relapsed for the third time in July this year and he spent the last 40 days of his life in hospital.

There were heart wrenching scenes at the funeral, with his wife Vijayeta Pandit, a former actress and the couple’s sons weeping inconsolably. Aadesh shared a special bond with Amitabh Bachchan who was seen comforting Vijayeta. Aadesh is best remembered for his songs in Baghban, Babul, Chalte Chalte, and Rajneeti.
