Composer Shravan Rathod of Nadeem-Shravan fame passed away today (April 22) after battling Covid-19. He was hospitalised a few days ago after he tested positive for the deadly virus. Earlier, the singer’s son, Sanjeev Rathod told indianexpress.com about his father’s health saying that he was critical. He was 66 at the time of death.

He had said, “Yes, he tested positive for Covid-19 and is admitted to SL Raheja hospital in Mahim, he is very critical as he has other comorbidities also. Please pray for him”.

Composer Nadeem SaifiThe confirmed the news of Shravan’s death. He told Bombay Times, “My Shanu is no more. We have seen an entire life together. We saw our highs, we saw our lows. We’ve grown up with each other in many ways. We never lost touch and no physical distance could ever separate the two of us.” He is in deep pain as his friend, companion and partner of so many years is no more. Nadeem said that he spoke to Shravan’s son and he was inconsolable. “We had been in touch on a regular basis for the last several days when Shravan complained of ill-health and had to be moved to a hospital,” said the composer.

Nadeem-Shravan gave many hits in the 90s. Their hit tracks are in the films like Saajan, Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin, Sadak, Aashiqui, and Pardes among others. The duo parted ways in the mid-2000s, but in 2009, they again came together for David Dhawan’s Do Knot Disturb.

May his soul rest in peace and we offer our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.
