One of the ace music directors of Bollywood, Shravan Rathod, from the duo Nadeem- Shravan passed away on April 22 due to COVID-19 complications. After returning from Kumbh Mela, he was tested positive due to this, his health deteriorated and his organs started failing, resulting in his death. Composer duo, Nadeem Saifi recently spoke about a wish that he wanted to do with Shravan but now it is unfulfilled. Nadeem and Shravan Rathod might have had big ego clashes back in the day but Nadeem wanted to do a Farewell Tour with Shravan.
Speaking to Etimes, he was quoted saying, “Look, such things happen after working with each other for many years, especially after children grow up. Lekin ek baat mujhe karni thi lekin ab woh hogi nahi.” When asked about his wish that is unfulfilled, he said, “I wanted to do a Farewell Tour with Shravan, which would have had us performing to our hit songs in different parts of the world. We were looking forward to it but the lockdown came as a big dampener. We thought we would certainly do it after things improve on the COVID front but alas!” Nadeem also revealed that he and Shravan had spoken to each other on the phone about 25 days prior to Shravan's demise.
“We chatted for about 20/25 min on quite a few things. How I wish that things were still the same and we had resolved everything and started working together again.” Before his demise, Shravan had also made a call to singer Udit Narayan from his stay in Kumbh Mela.
Reportedly, Shravan’s son Sanjeev Rathod stated his brother Darshan to perform the last rites which will be recorded for him as well as Shravan’s wife as they are in the hospital for COVID treatment.
