Shrivastava was diagnosed with blood cancer in 2011 but had successfully overcome the disease. However, according to multiple news sources, he has had a relapse and has been admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri, Mumbai, since the last few weeks.
The family is keeping this under wraps and not many people are aware about the same. The people who have worked with him previously too are unaware of it.
Confirming the news to Radioandmusic.com, Anu Malik said, “I just heard the news of Aadeshji being hospitalised and I will go to visit him very soon. He has been a very dear friend of mine and also is a very hardworking person. My prayers are with his family and we all hope that he pulls through, the way he did last time.”
Singer Palak Muchhal said, “I was supposed to meet him, however, due to my health conditions, I could not pay him a visit. His son is constantly asking all of us to pray for him, as his condition is still the same.”
In 2011, the ‘More Piya’ singer-composer was very upset with the way the Bollywood had ignored him. It is said that most B-town celebs had not visited him while he was battling cancer. Amongst the ones who had visited him were Sonu Nigam, Shaan, Shekhar Suman, lyricist Prasoon Joshi and director JP Dutta.
After his successful battle with cancer, he was actively involved in taking Shrivastava’s Global Sounds of Peace project across the world.
