The veteran composer was suffering from heart ailments and was diabetic.
Talking to Bombay Times, composer Nadeem Saifi, the other half of the popular duo, confirmed the news, of the veteran composer's death. A emotional Shravan said, "My Shanu is no more. We have seen an entire life together. We saw our highs, we saw our lows. We've grown up with each other in many ways. We never lost touch and no physical distance could ever separate the two of us. I am in deep pain as I say this but my friend and my companion, my partner of so many years is no more. It has left such a vacuum. I spoke to his son who was inconsolable. We had been in touch on a regular basis for the last several days when Shravan complained of ill-health and had to be moved to a hospital. Shravan's wife and son are also unwell and are still in the hospital. I am feeling so helpless that I cannot be there physically for them, to help them and bid farewell to my friend." The legendary musicians have composed music for films like 'Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin', 'Saajan', 'Sadak', 'Deewana' and 'Pardes'
