It’s a sad day in Bollywood’s history. Music composer Aadesh Shrivastava succumbed to cancer after a long battle. During his two-decade career in Bollywood, he composed music for about 100 films like Chalte-Chalte, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Ghum. His last film was Welcome Back, released on Friday.
Let’s give him a tribute the way would have wanted us to.
Here’s a list of 10 best songs composed by him, something to remember him by-
1. Kya Ada Kya Jalwe Tere Paro
Kya Ada Kya Jalwe Tere Paro was a chartbuster song from the film Shastra shot him to fame and fetched him instant popularity.

Sona Sona from Major Saab takes us back to the glorious era of the 90’s. This song compels you to get on the dance floor.
3. Bahut Khoobsurat Ghazal Likh Raha Hoon
A really beautiful ghazal sung by Kumar Sanu and composed beautifully by Aadesh Shriavastava from the movie Shikari.
4. Kiska Chehra
A mesmerizing romantic song crooned by the great Jagjit Singh from Tabu-Nana Patekar starrer Tarkieb.
5. Yeh Hawayein
Though the movie Bas Itna Sa Khawab Hai starring Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji didn’t do so well but this soft romantic track from the film remained on everyone’s lips.
6. Say Shava Shava
Say Shava Shava was the ultimate party number of 2001, the whole nation was dancing to the beats. Aadesh composed and sang the number with Amitabh Bachchan, Alka Yagnik, Sunidhi Chauhan, Udit Narayan, and Sudesh Bhonsle.

Aadesh’s collaboration with brother-in-laws Jatin-Lalit was really successful for Chalte Chalte. The songs never get old.

Listening to Main Yahan Tu Wahan breaks our heart completely. We can’t help but notice that Aadesh and Amitabh together created a lot of great songs.
9. Chali Chali Phir
Aadesh Shrivastava and Amitabh Bachchhan together again with a slightly peppy number from Baghban again. This song was also a super-hit at the time.

Mora Piya is not only composed by Aadesh but also sung by him. An ultimate heartbreak song, this number is a mix of Sufi and western notes.
