TODAY, Bollywood Music Composer and Singer, Aadesh Shrivastava  turns 45 who born on 6th June, 1966 - is an Indian composer and singer. Over the course of his career, he has composed the music for over 50 Hindi films. His wife Vijeta Pandit is a former Bollywood actress and the sister of the composer duo Jatin Lalit. Shrivastava also serves as the vice president of the Music Composers Association of India.


Shrivastava wanted to become a doctor, but his passion for music was so strong that he decided to make his career as a composer.[citation needed] He learned to play the drums, and shifted to Mumbai where he at first struggled to find work, even sleeping at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus for lack of funds. Eventually he met composers Sapan-Jagmohan. He then proceeded to gain a foothold in the industry by playing drums for music directors such as O P Nayyar, Shankar Jaikishan and Salil Choudhary.[citation needed] He assisted Laxmikant Pyarelal for almost a decade before taking the responsibility of a professional composer.

Shrivastava got his first big break with film Kanyadaan in the year 1993. Among the singers who sang in this movie, there was Lata Mangeshkar who sang his first song. But the film did not release, and the songs went unnoticed. The same thing happened with Jaane Tamanna, but he bounced back with Aao Pyaar Karen. One track, Haathon mein jo aa gaya jo kal was a hit. His other films are Salma Pe Dil Aa Gaya and Shastra. The chart buster Kya ada kya jalwe tere Paro from the film Shastra got him in the limelight once again. In 1998, his music in the film Angaarey became a hit.

Shrivastava also sang a number of songs and rendered hit songs such as Sona sona, Shava shava, Gustakhiyaan and Gur nalon ishq mitha. He won accolades for his work in Kunwara, Tarkieb and Shikari in the year 2000. In 2001, his success continued with the movie Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai.

In 2005, he was a judge on the talent hunt show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2005. The following year he turned to direction with his short film on child prostitution, "Sanaa". In 2009 he made a cameo in the film World Cupp 2011 and returned to television as a judge on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2009. His semi-classical song Mora Piya from Raajneeti became a hit in 2010.

On the international front Shrivastava has collaborated with artists such as Akon, Julia Fordham and Wyclef Jean. Together with Akon, he has launched an India-wide talent search on the website which uses music analysis technology to predict the hit potential of new songs.


Shrivastava is married to Vijeta Pandit, the sister of Jatin Lalit and actress Sulakshana Pandit. They have two sons. His elder brother Chitresh Shrivastava owned Eyeline Telefilm and Events, the event management company implicated in the Rahat Fateh Ali Khan black money incident. He died in an automobile accident on 7 May 2011 while on tour with Fateh Ali Khan. Aadesh Shrivastava was diagnosed with cancer in December 2010 and went through chemotherapy.
