MUMBAI — Music composer Aadesh Shrivastava who was battling cancer passed away post midnight. He was 51.
Aadesh had been in Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri for over 40 days for cancer treatment.

Last evening, Aadesh's brother-in-law and composer Lalit Pandit had told PTI, "He has been undergoing chemotherapy but he is not responding to it.
