Music composer Shravan Rathod of the popular music duo, Nadeem-Shravan has passed away earlier this evening due to COVID-19 complications. He was 66 years old.
His son Sanjeev Rathod confirmed the news to Indian Express. He said, “He passed away tonight. He was not responding to treatment at all. He passed away at the hospital. Please pray for his soul.”
The musician was admitted to SL Raheja hospital in Mahim, Mumbai a few days ago after he tested positive for coronavirus. Frequent collaborator Sameer had mentioned that the composer was diabetic and his lungs had been infected due to the disease. Shravan had also developed heart complications and was on ventilator for the last few days.
His former music partner, Nadeem spoke to Bombay Times about it as he said, “I am in deep pain as I say this but my friend and my companion, my partner of so many years is no more. It has left such a vacuum. I spoke to his son who 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. Shravan’s wife and son are also unwell and are still in the hospital."
May his soul rest in peace.
