The demise of Shravan has come as a severe shock to the Hindi film industry. Shravan along with his partner Nadeem has been widely regarded as the musician duo who brought fresh and evergreen melodies in the early nineties with superhit tracks of films like Aashiqui, Saajan, Sadak, Phool Aur Kaante. However, the two Nadeem and Shravan split in mid 2000s, and then later reunited to compose music for David Dhawan’s Do Knot Disturb in 2009.
