Many well-wishers have been pouring in to visit popular music composer, Aadesh Shrivastava, who we have learnt is putting up a spirited fight.
After SRK, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan today (September 2) visited Aadesh and his family. “The Bachchans and Aadesh’s families go back a long way. Aishwarya dropped in today and conveyed her warm wishes to Aadesh.”
Producer Ramesh Taurani too was seen visiting Aadesh in the hospital.
Music director Aadesh Shrivastava, who has had a cancer relapse for the second time and is undergoing treatment at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, has shown signs of improvement. The doctors are mighty impressed with the music composer’s valiant fighting spirit.
Aadesh who was in critical condition and had been in the hospital for the past 41 days, is now responding to the treatment. The music director was taken out for a brief spin on a wheelchair for some fresh air and he even flashed the victorious thumbs up sign.
Informs our source, “The family is financially well-sound and is ably taking care of Aadesh’s medical needs.”
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who has always considered him family, also dropped in last night (September 2) and it was a nostalgic moment when two old friends met. It’s also said that Aadesh easily recognised SRK and they shared a warm camaraderie.
Aadesh Shrivastava had composed music for SRK’s production ‘Chalte Chalte’ and composed and sung in ‘Shaava Shaava’ from ‘Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham’ starring Shah Rukh Khan.
There were reports that Aadesh Shrivastava was disappointed when his friends from the film industry did not turn up to meet him while he battled cancer in 2010. But this time around, Aadesh’s brother-in-law had said: Lalit noted that “everyone that he has worked with have come to meet him” this time.
Earlier, melody queen Lata Mangeshkar had also tweeted showing concern over Aadesh Shrivastava’s deteriorating health condition and prayed for his fast recovery. Many people from Bollywood have dropped in. Shekhar Kapur, Suchitra Krishnamoorthy, Poonam Dhillon, Anu Mallik, Jaspinder Narula, Abhijeet and many others visited him.
It’s also reported that filmmaker Aziz Mirza and singer Alka Yagnik pay a daily visit to Aadesh Shrivastava.
