Music composer Wajid ji passes away in Mumbai

The year 2020 is not the most pleasant year for many, especially for the Bollywood industry. After the sad demise of Irrfan Khan followed by Rishi Kapoor, we hear that Music Wajid Khan of Sajid Wajid fame passed away in Mumbai. He had been admitted to a hospital in Mumbai due to health complications and later passed away. The news about his demise has been confirmed by Sonu Nigam.

As per sources, Wajid has not been keeping well for quite a few days. In fact, a lot of reports claimed that Wajid ji passed away due to COVID 19. However, music composer Salim Merchant shared with PTI that he passed away due to a kidney infection and a complication related to it. He mentioned, “Wajid had multiple issues. He had a kidney issue and had a transplant a while ago. But recently he got to know about kidney infection. He was on the ventilator for the last four days, after his situation started getting worse.”


The musician along with his brother Sajid gave us some of the most memorable songs like Chinta ta chinta chinta, Fevicol se, Soni de nakhre, and many more. We will indeed miss them in the coming times.


We pray for his soul to rest in peace.
