Music composer Wajid Khan of the Sajid-Wajid duo passed away in Mumbai in the early hours of June 1, 2020. He was suffering from kidney and heart ailments for quite some time and had been rushed to a hospital where he was reportedly on the ventilator.
Wajid had been keeping a low profile due to his ill-health for some time now. The Sajid-Wajid duo recently composed Salman Khan’s lockdown songs Bhai Bhai and Pyaar Karona. They were considered as Salman’s favourite composers, who gave them a break in Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya in 1998, where they composed the song Teri jawani.
Wajid was also a singer in his own right and has sung many hits like Soni de nakhre (Partner 2008), Love me (Wanted 2009), Mukhtasar (Teri Meri Kahaani 2012), Fevicol se (Dabangg 2), and many more.
