Composer Shravan Rathod, of popular music director duo Nadeem-Shravan, passed away on Thursday due to COVID-19 related complications, his son said.

Rathod was 66.

The composer was admitted to SL Raheja Hospital in a “critical” condition after testing positive for COVID-19. He breathed his last in the hospital.

“He passed away around 10:15 PM tonight. Please pray for his soul,” his son, musician Sanjeev Rathod said.

The musician had been under observation at the hospital for a few days.

Nadeem-Shravan were among the most popular music composers in the 90s, giving chartbuster soundtracks in films like Aashiqui (1990), Saajan (1991), Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pardes and Raja Hindustani, headlined by Aamir Khan.

After their split in the mid-2000s, the duo reunited to compose for David Dhawan’s Do Knot Disturb in 2009.

Shravan’s children, sons Sanjeev and Darshan, followed in his footsteps and turned music composers.

The composer’s death came as a shock to the music community in the Hindi film industry with Pritam and Adnan Sami leading tributes.

“Saddened to know that Shravanji of Nadeem Shravan has passed away. Feeling numb. When will this nightmare get over. My deepest condolences to his family,” Pritam wrote.

Salim Merchant of Salim-Sulaimaan fame, wrote, “Shravan bhai is no more. My respects and condolences to his family. Nadeem-Shravan has given us some of the biggest hits in the 90s. Covid has taken so many lives. Don’t know when will this end…Really saddened by this news.”

Singer Adnan Sami also condoled Rathod’s demise.

“Extremely saddened by the tragic news of legendary Music Composer Shravan Ji’s (of Nadeem/Shravan fame) demise… He was not just an incredible composer but also possessed an ever-loving soul & a beautiful heart. May he rest in peace,” Sami wrote.
