Mumbai: Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is often not enough for great music. The one person who solely lived by this saying is Bollywood’s musical legend, Late Aadesh Srivastava. The music industry suffered a major setback last year by his sudden demise after a valiant battle against cancer.
Remembering this musical maestro on his 52nd Birth Anniversary, Rishtey Cineplex and Colors will air a special documentary entitled ‘A Tribute to Aadesh Srivastava’ showcasing snippets from his life and the memories he has left behind on 3rd September and 4th September respectively at 9:00 AM.
Throughout his life, Aadesh Srivastava was wholly dedicated towards music and entertainment, and touched many hearts with his affable personality. ‘A Tribute to Aadesh Srivastava’ will feature renowned personalities of Bollywood and the music industry who have worked with the maestro and shared a strong relationship with him. The documentary will also feature memories and special moments that celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Juhi Chawla, Pyarelal, Lalit Pandit, Sonu Nigam, A.R. Rahman, J.P. Dutta, Rajeev Kapoor and many more have shared with the late music director during his lifetime. And, on the occasion of his 52nd Birth Anniversary, an emotional Srivastava family including his bereaved wife Vijayta Srivastava and his sons Anivesh and Avitesh Srivastava, will also share their memories of the loving husband and caring father.
Speaking about the versatile musician, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan said, “I first saw Aadesh Srivastava in Laxmikant Pyarelal-ji’s orchestra. He was a talented musician; he had inclination towards knowledge of classical music. In Bollywood, you rarely get to see the perfect amalgamation of classical music, but he was one of those musicians who use to infuse his knowledge of classical music and latest trends in his creation.”
Speaking about his contemporary and good friend, singer Sonu Nigam said, “Aadesh Srivastava had a personality which you hardly get to see in the people who belong to this industry. He had the perfect mix of bravery, compassion and quirkiness which also used to reflect in his music.”
