Shravan Rathod’s isn’t any extra

One of the biggest contributors to the chart-busters of the nineties, Shravan Rathod of music director duo Nadeem-Shravan, breathed his last on Thursday. Suffering from Covid-19, he died fighting the disease and was 66.

Were planning a grand comeback: Nadeem

Speaking from London, Shravan’s senior partner Nadeem Saifi said, “The news of Shannu’s death has left me devastated. For a grand comeback, we were planning a world tour, since last year…but destiny had something else in store for me. It has suddenly crushed our dreams ..forever.” —IANS

While Bollywood sends its heartfelt condolences to fans, family and friends, it also takes us back to their breakthrough album for the movie Aashiqui (1990), after which the melodies never stopped making sense to the music lovers. Not just filling in for good music, the dynamic duo is also credited for popularising India’s leading music label T-Series at that time as Aaashiqui is the best-selling album of Bollywood music of all times. From Sanson Ki Jarurat Hai Jaise in Aashiqui to Saajan, for which he won the Filmare Award for Best Music Director, many of his fans shared the album covers of his hits on social media to pay tributes.
