Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un
Wajid Khan of Sajid-Wajid fame passed away sometime back in Mumbai today. The singer/composer was 42 when he breathed his last. Though there hasn't been any official confirmation regarding the reason due to which he died, there have been unconfirmed reports of him suffering from a kidney-related problem because of which he had been hospitalized and was also put on a ventilator for quite a few days. Other reports suggest he does due to COVID-19 related complications but there hasn't been any official statement from the family yet.
The news of Wajid Khan's sudden death has left the music industry of India in shock. Noted singers, composers, and fellow colleagues from Bollywood have taken to their social media accounts to express their grief.
Wajid Khan was part of the Sajid-Wajid duo. They have given music for several films over the years. Their musical debut was in 1998 with Salman Khan and Kajol starrer, Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya. Post that both Sajid-Wajid composed music for several hit films like Hello Brother, Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, and Sonu Nigam's hit music album Deewana. But their luck changed after their hit film album Wanted in 2008. This Salman Khan movie gave the much-needed push to their career.
Two years back Wajid Khan was also rushed to the hospital after he complained of chest pain. Back then he had a severe arterial blockage and the doctors had to perform angioplasty. Wajid Khan also was a notable singer with hits like Jalwa from Wanted and Chin Ta Ta from Rowdy Rathore.
We at SpotboyE pray for his family and may his soul rest in peace.
