Composer Shravan Rathod, who died of Covid-19 related complications on Thursday, had attended the Kumbh Mela, his son Sanjeev Rathod said in a recent interview.
“Father was admitted last week after he started showing symptoms….He attended Kumbh Mela. But I wouldn’t put my hand on it and say he caught the virus there. I don’t know how it happened or where exactly he contracted it. One way to look at it could also be that our souls find peace in God after death, but someone at his age got to visit a holy place and then surrendered to God,” Sanjeev said. Shravan was 66 when he died, reports The New Indian Express.
Sanjeev said his brother Darshan Rathod collected the musician’s body from the hospital for the last rites, but he and their mother Vimla are COVID-19 positive and remain in hospital.
“Me and my mother are COVID positive too and are in Seven Hills Hospital for the treatment. My symptoms are mild. This is my second day in the hospital,” he added.
Shravan was admitted to SL Raheja hospital in a “critical” condition after testing positive for COVID-19 and passed away on Thursday. He had been under observation at the hospital for a few days.
Nadeem-Shravan were among the most popular music composers in the 90s, providing soundtracks in films like ‘Aashiqui’ (1990), ‘Saajan’ (1991),’Pardes’ (1997) and ‘Raja Hindustani’ (1996)
After their split in mid 2000s, the duo reunited to compose for David Dhawan’s ‘Do Knot Disturb’ (2009).
