Bollywood's legendary music composer Khayyam dies

Khayyam Passes Away 5 Songs by the Music Composer That Will Fill Your Heart with Joy and Melancholy at the Same Time

Condolences have started pouring in for the veteran who breathed his last in Sujoy Hospital in Mumbai.

Bollywood celebrities, as well as politicians such as Prime Minister Narendra Modi, mourned the demise of the legendary music director who left behind a grand legacy. He was one of the last bastions of an era of Hindi film music that has all but ended - one that was defined by inherently Indian melody that celebrated the sounds and culture of the soil. That is the reason one finds poetry playing an equal role in Khayyam's compositions as the music or the singer.

Legendary Bollywood music composer Khayyam breathed his last in Mumbai on Monday August 19. Secondly, he observed that Khayyam would "also be remembered for his humanitarian gestures to support upcoming artists". "His demise is extremely saddening", he said.

That exemption would have expired Monday, but the Commerce Department extended it for another 90 days, as expected. The extension will last 90 days, and is a repeat of the previous 90-day extension, granted back in May .

Awards, glory came his way once again with the film as Khayyam bagged his second Filmfare trophy for the Best Music Director.

Marathi film industry's talented actor Prasad Oak too grieves the death of khayyam sahab and posts a few lines on Twitter to express his grief. "His understanding and knowledge of Shayari was exceptional", she tweeted.

The musician was honoured with Padma Bhushan in the year 2011 and was bestowed the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 2007. "He used to make songs of his special choice for me". Khayyam began music direction at the age of 17 in Ludhiana. He got his first big break in blockbuster "Umrao Jaan" through which he made his permanent place in Bollywood industry.

Besides movies, the composer has also been equally instrumental in producing non-film songs - Paaon Padun Tore Shyam, Ghazab Kiya Tere Vaade Pe Aitbaar Kiya among others. I used to love working with him and was also bit scared of him because he was a perfectionist.
