Another good soul departed today at 12:30 am in a suburban Mumbai hospital. Aadesh Shrivastava, the music director who is known for his work in Baghban, Chalte Chalte and the movie Welcome Back that hit screens this Friday. He had been battling cancer for a long time now.
In 2010, he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma cancer. While the industry turned their back to him, but he fought with great vigour and survived the deadly disease. But when cancer relapses it comes with a vengeance and this time he succumbed to the disease.
After battling hard for 40 days, he breathed his last breath in a Andheri hospital at 12.30am today. He is survived by his actress wife Vijeta and his two sons, Anivesh and Avitesh. A lot of big names from the industry had been paying him visits for the past few weeks, but his condition only worsened with time. His chemotherapy also had to be stopped because he wasn’t responding to any treatment at all.
He was a young man, only 51 yet no one can change destiny. We pray that his family will remain strong in these testing times and may his soul rest in peace.
