A few days ago, Shravan Rathod had been hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19. The veteran music composer was in a critical state and was on a ventilator for the past few days. Doctors at the hospital had kept him under observation in the ICU. After complications in the case, he was admitted to Mahim’s SL Raheja hospital. The composer took his last breath today, after succumbing to Coronavirus. The news of his demise was confirmed by filmmaker Anil Sharma on his Twitter handle. 

Nadeem Saifi, who was the composer’s close friend and music partner, also confirmed the news. Speaking to Bombay Times, he mourned the loss of his friend with a heart-wrenching message. “My Shanu is no more,” he said while reminiscing the old times the duo had together.
